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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2002
Clear amber colour with generous light tan head - good lacing. Delicate floral nectar, hops, celery, spices and doughy yeasts. Medium body. A smooth soft but generous hoppy bitter spicey start and less bitter together with malty sweetness middle. After the initial hops burst the remainder of the palate and flavour is a bit like a lowly carbonated Brit draught ale. The more I had the more I liked it.

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 (1197) - 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)

Renobob (1113) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Bière très maltée, agréable au palais. Arômes de grains, de sucre candi et c’est tout. Pas mal.
