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.

MatteoD. (136) - 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

Golden pale color. Hoppy aromas at the beginning. When it gets warmer, the aromas turn into caramel. Malty, caramel kinda taste, with a very nice hoppy bitter aftertaste. Not bad.
