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.

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:

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 (954) - 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.

Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 26, 2005
It was being a little unfair with this beer, since not much people talk about it. But it is really good, smells nice and the flavour is great. The beer is cloudy, and very spicy, but the backtaste is fast.
