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.

Very caramely beer. Seems to evolve with every sip. I prefer amber beers and this is a very particular amber beer . Slight carbonation .

Een goede, degelijke Pale-Ale. Niet de beste dat er te vinden is, maar is wel heel degelijk
