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.

Amber coloured, firm head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Quite bitter flavour, like an English Pale should be. Pleasant thirst-quenching beer.

ruigo (2125) - 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.

Swaroga (2023)
- Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 5, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a brown wood, clear with eggshell small head. Nose : cherry, plums, caramelized malts. Smoked and whisky notes. Sip : Oily with a small carbonation. Little sweet followed by coffee bitterness which I find amusing since itís a pale beer. Caramel and dried fruits are still present. Honestly itís a surprising beer. From taste I would say itís more of a typical brown brown.
