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.

ruigo (1062) - 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.

Slayer85 (1044) - 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.

tricksta_p (1023) - 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.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep deep amber with dense white head. Head did not hang around very long leaving a little lace as it falls away. Aromas of honey, caramel, treacle and just a hint of sourness. Good stuff. Flavour wise lots of initial sweetness with more of the toffee and caramel. Finish is reasonably bitter with some sourness. Medium to full mouthfeel. Good beer.

Crockett (1007) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
I guess this is the stuff. Pours deep amber. Big soapy white head. Lots of lace. Malty and raisin, caramel, hop nose. Creamy mouthfeel. Cotton candy. Vanilla. Earthy mushroom. Sweet but round. Sweet/spicey soapy finish. Nice.

JanEric (990) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle. Dark blonde, small head. Aroma has yeast, a bit sweetness,like honey or candy. Taste is reasonable bitter, smooth, medium to full-bodied, little carbonation, also some sweetness in the taste, with a nice finish.

txspartan (965) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2011
I am not too overly excited about this beer. Might be the style. Drinkable, that’s one thing.

mmahut (945) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 29, 2014
Clear pale body with no head at all. Aroma is high on malty, hay. Taste has sugary sweetness upfront with higher very grassy, almost like hop cones, bitterness. Body is full, oily, high carbonation.
