COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

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.

ClubGonzo (5420) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle @ some cafe in Brussels. Pours a clear, light nougat body with a moderate white top. Aroma is pale malts, ale yeast and molasses. Taste is too sweet, with caramel and an ale-yeasty smoothness that actually makes the molasses become even worse. Some metallic aftertaste tones. A Belgian-style EPA of the lesser kind, in my opinion.

33cl Bottle @ Brussels. Pours amber with a small creamy stable head and lacings. Toffee, fruit, grain and caramel. A bit of metal. Medium bodied. Dry bitter end
