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.

Flaska @ Mori´s Bar, Nice. Klar guldfärgad öl med ett fint gulvitt skum. Dofter av frukt, malt och karamell. Söt, på gränsen mot sliskig, smak, med inslag av karamell, frukt, honung och gräs. Lätt beska.

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle at a random bar in Antwerp. Last beer of the night. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light fruits and light grass hops. Flavor follows with some malt and honey sweetness, a bit of light fruits, and not much else. Finishes a little dirty. Body is light but the maltiness of this comes off as too sweet. Medium carbonation. Meh. No thanks.

bartlebier (1978) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2014
33cl bottle, Delhaize Wondelgem 08/2014. Pours an all too clear cookie dough amber, near red. Sickly sweet aroma of Lotus speculoos, emanating industrial caramels. Sweet, near-cloying in taste, with a very late onset of bittering hop, with natural herbal components. Utterly unenjoyable as a pale ale, even a belgicised one. Wo is still drinking these days of yore "pel el"s? - Gladly purchased just one of this along with their free IPA 4-pack.

Very caramely beer. Seems to evolve with every sip. I prefer amber beers and this is a very particular amber beer . Slight carbonation .

Een goede, degelijke Pale-Ale. Niet de beste dat er te vinden is, maar is wel heel degelijk
