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.

Gulbrun klar med fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lite lukt, noe fruktig. Søtlig smak, noe brent karamell. Lett bitterhet i avslutningen. Tørr

A very good offering from John Martin. Good hops, well-balanced alcohol and bitterness, some citrus, altogether a very good classic pale ale, much better than many from Britain or the US.

SkillsFactory (176) - ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Ambrata, limpida, mediamente carbonata, corpo medio-leggero, buona ritenzione della schiuma che lascia tracce sulle pareti del bicchiere. Aroma di pesca fresca e malto d'orzo, man mano che si scalda subentrano note metalliche. Stessa cosa al palato, retrogusto equilibrato in parte dall'amaro erbaceo del luppolo. Buona bevibilità.

This beer is certainly not bad, but it is not something special either. Just good beer.

alomtnez (165) - SPAIN - MAR 15, 2015
On tap. Average white head, clear ligth amber colour. Aroma is fruity (peach) and toasted malt. Complex taste, fruity, peach, with sweetness but sour cheesy lactic notes. Full body and high carbonation. Fruity cheesy aftertaste, not very pleasant after several sips.
