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.

tricksta_p (1258) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Pours an amber colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some caramel, slightly hoppy. Average English ale, thirstquencher, not bad but nothing special.

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

ruigo (1158) - 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.

HopfenWeisse (1118) - - NOV 8, 2014
Clear golden amber color with lasting head. Aroma is fruity and some hops. Flavor is fruity, malt. Quite heavy. Could be more fresh and maybe more on hops.

OllieBBommel (1116) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle@home (0,33l) White shrinking head, stays. Color red copper. Aroma hops. Taste bitter, hops, sweets. Palate bitter, full, fat. Overall IMHO better than Palm Speciale (too sweet)

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 9, 2008
Bottled (5,8% ABV). A clear dark golden/amber beer with a medium sized and fading white head. Not powerful aroma that however has some aromatic and grassy hops. I like more the flavour that has some caramel notes and then the hops. Medium body, lively carbonation, medium bitterness in the finish. I agree with those who say that this beer has some resemblance of a Pilsner. Enough pleasant.

At an astore supermarkt in Spa Belgium, Brown, medium head, very hoppy hinds of grapefruits, some caramel.
