COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who can ignore John Martinís 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.

Malty. Intense foam. Very hop. It has a strong and aromatic but not exceptional taste. A lot in the nose is felt. Good persistence.

- Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2004
Coppery color, little white head. Floral aroma with some citrus, rich aroma indeed. Flavor has some roasted tones and chocolate, fruity sweet end with very dry hops. Hops make flavor to be somehow spicy. Dry spicyness lasts in aftertaste. Medium bodied.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2004
Bottled, in a cafť in Brugge, Belgium.
A classic pale ale. Crystal clear brown with a smooth silky mouth feel. The enjoyment of this beer is derived mainly from satin mouth feel rather then from original or complex flavours.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Rich malty nose, sweet, with nice hoppy aroma, hop oil, light citrus-grapefruit. Refreshing to have this aroma after so many Belgian ales. Medium-dark amber clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-light carbonation. Starts with mild acidity, light sweetness, and good hop notes. Caramel malts, some saltiness, but balanced with medium bitter hops, fruity. Overall, a pretty smooth pale ale. Easy drinkiní. Nutty sweet after, and just a little bitterness.

Ingevara (768) - SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2004
A fast swelling firm head that captures a smooth nice aroma. Hoppy, but surprisingly sweet. A bit malty, but nothing apparent. Lots of flavor in a well balanced mix.
