COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who can ignore John Martinís ale that our ancestors called "the noblest of English Pale Ales". This unique beer of 6% ABV is the fruit of truly exceptional craftsmanship, a unique technique whereby authentic Kent hop-bells are added after brewing.

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of Belgian malt with dry English hops with some light fruity ester. Taste is also a well balance mix between some lightly sweet Belgian style malt with some notes of dry hops with some fruity ester. Medium body with some good carbonation. Definitely better then expected with a nice refreshing factor.
