3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
[I believe this is the beer I've had even though the label only called it Martin's Pale Ale, the label was different than the one depicted, and the alcohol content was only 5.8% ABV. But as far as I remember it was made by John Martin.] The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of hops. The color is amber and it has a beutiful though collapsing head. The flavor is fantastic; sweet, malty with notes of caramel and ending on a good bitter note. A really lovely beer.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 (Bottle 33 cl) Neat, clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Sweetish, perfumy malty nose. Sweet, almost sirupy flavour with some caramel malt. A solid bitter finish saves this from being cloying. 090805 and 080800

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22nd February 2008. Strong bitter/ale smell belying itís pale ale status. Fairly crisp - malt dominates the slight hoppyness. Lingering dry slightly bitter malt finish. Brings back those misty water colour memories of drinking sub standard ale in the 1970s!!
