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.

Abio (1845) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2010
Pours out darker then expected. Even yellow-amberish coloured. Very big white head that holds very good. Donít looks bad at all. Sour fruits, citrus and also some spices and hops. Not bad, but smells a bit like some soda... Hoppy, bitter but also some soureness of the fruits at the taste. Drinks pretty easy, but more soda-like then I can handle for a beer... A bit sad, cause the taste on his own, and also the smell arenít bad.

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.

jamaty (1809) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Color Šmbar. Abundante espuma blanca poco consistente. Aroma lupulizado floral. Cuerpo medio. El conjunto es dulce, con bastante de naranja tambiťn, y caramelo, para dejar un final bastante seco y algo amargo.

Bottle@home. Mahogany clear. Small head. Nutty earthy. Licorice dry. Fruity estery phenols. Very strange complex. I think I like it.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle at a random bar in Antwerp. Last beer of the night. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light fruits and light grass hops. Flavor follows with some malt and honey sweetness, a bit of light fruits, and not much else. Finishes a little dirty. Body is light but the maltiness of this comes off as too sweet. Medium carbonation. Meh. No thanks.
