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.

Skinnyviking (7177) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
Bottle. Small white but lasting head. Clear amber body, what a beauty ! Lovely barlay aroma. Proper bitterness. Rather high alcohol percentage for a pale ale but it suits it.

TBone (12953) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 2, 2006
Bottled, alc. 5.8% (BB 08/2006)
Copper brown, decent creamy white head, some lace. Metallic malty, toffeeish aroma, some skunky hops somewhere there. Toffee malty is also the flavor with woody touch. In the finish some Kentish hops, which leaves semi-sweet, hoppy aftertaste. Decent EPA:

chalmers (8) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - MAR 15, 2006 does not count
A nice, easy drinking Pale Ale, that is brewed in Belgium. Not as much bite as some Pale’s, but very refreshing and enjoyable on this nice spring-like day.

McWorta (640) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 13, 2006
Pale ale, well that is the stuff one sometimes has to go for. Hard though if ale is not really available close to you. As such a very appreciated substitute. A full amber colour. Ale direction taste. Develops a light sweet taste and leaves a soft caramel malt cover on your tongue. Noticable though that it is brewed in Belgium, nonetheless an ideal afterwork beer.
