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.

ruigo (1107) - 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.

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.

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.

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.
