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.

Light brown with light yellow rich cap. Rich nice pale ale taste, but without specific notes, mild afterbitterness at the root of tongue.

Pale ale, well that is the stuff one sometimes has to go for. Hard though if ale is not really available close to you. As such a very appreciated substitute. A full amber colour. Ale direction taste. Develops a light sweet taste and leaves a soft caramel malt cover on your tongue. Noticable though that it is brewed in Belgium, nonetheless an ideal afterwork beer.

Een goede, degelijke Pale-Ale. Niet de beste dat er te vinden is, maar is wel heel degelijk

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.

thanatosti (1481) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Bertís Bierhuis. Copper colored with a white head. Hoppy aroma with malts. Good bitter taste and more hops. Clean aftertaste and lively carbonation.

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)

JoeinDahlem (1455) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2007
Nice amber color with white head that sticks to the glass. Sweetish aroma of wet straw and grainy bread. Flavor starts with a bit of honey before the mildly bitter tang of hops kicks in, but that turns the corner into a drop of caramel-sugar on the back end. Lively mouthfeel, nice for a pale ale but typical for a Belgian. Somewhat wet. A refreshing beer thatís a step too far on the sweet side to be good for session drinking. But that nice kick of hops saves it from being boring. I deem it a good beer.

En stor smag af karamel i denne Ýl. Den har ikke meget humle og mŚske lidt smag af belgisk gśr .
