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.

0,33l bottle. Pours copper dark amber with, clear body with creamy white/beige lacing- Aromas are plums, sweet malts, some berries and grass. Palate is soft, silky smooth, medium bodied. Carbonation is soft and flat but mouthful. Taste is sweet malts, some caramel, and a dry lingering hops taste. Finish is mild, dry to medium bitter. Overall quite balanced ale, little weak on hops and watery in the end but not too sweet.

Golden pale color. Hoppy aromas at the beginning. When it gets warmer, the aromas turn into caramel. Malty, caramel kinda taste, with a very nice hoppy bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

Bottle. Golden amber with a good, fairly dense and longlasting off white head. Medium hoppy aroma with some fruit and grain. Flavour is grassy with malt undertones and a good lasting bitter finish. Enjoyable and delicious.

Ingevara (804) - SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2004
A fast swelling firm head that captures a smooth nice aroma. Hoppy, but surprisingly sweet. A bit malty, but nothing apparent. Lots of flavor in a well balanced mix.
