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.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Chi l’avrebbe mai detto che John Martin facesse una birra più che dignitosa? Questa pale ale manca decisamente di luppolo e meriterebbe più corpo, ma è comunque un’esperienza piacevolissima: la sua dolcezza non è stucchevole, evoca miele, amarene, frutti di bosco, e si restringe leggermente nel finale soprattutto con una nota di agrumato (l’amaro è poco poco). Curiosamente soddisfacente._________ENGLISH TEXT HERE________Would you swear that John Martin made a pretty decent brew? This pale ale lacks of hops and would deserve more body, but anyway is a very pleasant experience: its sweetness is not synthetic, it evokes honey, cherries, red fruits and goes a little adstringent in the finale with a citrus note (the sourness is very low, instead). Curiously satisfying.
