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.

smmadge (87) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2013
Caramel colour with thin head. Aroma of malt and citrus caramel sweetness. Taste is a bit thick sweet malty with a very small hinch of bitterness in the end. Nice but overall maybe a bit too much sweetness.

stevoj (2067) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Very malty profile for this Belgian/English brew. Sourish malt aroma, amber body with nice frothy beige head. Malt and hops also in the flavor, with slight lingering aftertaste. Half belgian/ half English....interesting.

ruigo (1059) - PORTUGAL - JUN 9, 2013
33cl from Carrefour (Belgium). Amber with a small head. Too much alcohol on the aroma and not much flavour. Medeium to low carbonation. Not bad, but not good. An average beer.

Lilja (1571) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2013
Belgisk, blygsam, lättdrucken, för mycket alkohol smak som slår igenom det finns bättre att hämta från Belgien.

mjs (4535) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 13, 2013
(Draught at Punavuoren Ahven, 20130413) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had butter and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, molasses and bitterness. Afteraste was harsh and bitter. Not a good pale ale.

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2013
Cappello di schiuma chiaro, alto 3 dita e non molto persistente, aroma leggero di fiori di luppolo e maltato, corpo medio e buona carbonazione che riempie la bocca, dolce, note speziate, e finale sgrassante e amaro, direi molto beverina e per tutte le stagioni. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alusmamuts (226) - LATVIA - FEB 28, 2013
Light brown with light yellow rich cap. Rich nice pale ale taste, but without specific notes, mild afterbitterness at the root of tongue.
