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.

Sigmund (5423) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2005
33 cl bottle, simply called "Martinís Pale Ale", now available in Norway. ABV is 5.8%. Website www.anthonymartin.be Deep golden nearly orange colour. Large head. Aroma of sweet malts, molasses and rotting fruits, hints of spices and leather. Flavour is well hopped, but unfortunately there is an everpresent molasses and dark syrup sweetness in the background, making the beer too cloying to be something Iíll buy again when I have finished my 4 bottles.

Dorqui (2115) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 23, 2004
Malty. Intense foam. Very hop. It has a strong and aromatic but not exceptional taste. A lot in the nose is felt. Good persistence.

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.

Jukkabro (3484) - 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.
