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.

nathanvc (67) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2014
It appears golden amber with a lasting foamy head. The aroma has hops, grass, fruits and citrus. It tastes medium bitter with a lasting bittersweet finish. Medium carbonation and metallic aftertaste. Refreshing, but nothing special.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Bière très maltée, agréable au palais. Arômes de grains, de sucre candi et c’est tout. Pas mal.
