Who can ignore John Martin’s 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.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2011
Bright ruby-red color, with a fine, flat white head. Aroma is very hoppy spicy, slightly bitter with a sweet touch. The finish is changing very quickly in an extremely bitter taste. Unfortunately, the bitter tone to the middle part is a little pushy. Finish is overhopped, very bitter.

Koelschtrinker (16435) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Bei diesem Bier ist ein blumiger Geruch wahrzunehmen. Ein recht würziges Bier, im Mittelteil noch malzig süß, im Nachgeschmack dann eher etwas erdig. Also irgendwie ist das Bier schon ok, wobei mir der etwas eigene Nachgeschmack nicht wirklich bekommt. Test vom 17.11.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,10,7,9,9 - 8,70

Martinus (4365) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2011
Clear copper colour, white head. Aroma rather restrained, but very nice. Floral and citrus hops on a malt base. Quite sweet, quite pronounced honey and some caramel. Flavour is malty, nice bitter hops tones, citrus fruits, honey. Very balanced. Finish bit bitter with citrus tones.
(Draught @ Café Jos, Nijmegen)

I am not too overly excited about this beer. Might be the style. Drinkable, that’s one thing.

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
bouteille, brun/ambre, mousse beige/rousse Arome de maïs, malt cara et qcq fruits, orge et sucre, maïs donne ce côté trop doux, un peu de malt torréfié. Pas mauvais mais vraiment mon idée d’une pale ale que je pensais être un peu plus amer.
