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.

Goud/ koper kleurig bier. Weinig schuim. Aroma haal ik niet veel uit. Smaak is licht bitter en in de afdronk iets pittiger. Body is gemiddeld

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 I must say that, when fresh on tap, this is quite an amazing industrial beer. Dry-hopping gives a very good "golding" aroma, well balanced with nice sweet malts. Alcohol is well hidden in mouth, just a bit warming. The flavour is balanced of good malts and a crisp dry hop bitterness.

On tap, 5.8%. Orange color, clear, average white head. aroma is mostly honey with grains and a proper hops smack. Fairly bitter taste, dry finish. Nicely hoppy and pretty good, simple pale ale pretty quaffable.

psilosophy (479) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - NOV 12, 2012
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur légèrement ambrée, mousse correcte de tenue moyenne. Légèrement fruitée et houblonnée, une bière assez goutue pour son faible degrés alcoolique, cependant,elle est un peu trop sucrée, ce qui la rendrait écoeurante assez rapidement. Trouvée à l’entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 Bottle: malty, sweetish, sweet corn like notes, peaches, good dose of hoppy bitterness both in aroma and in flavor, some metalic notes, toasted malt, some strange sulfur like notes. pretty nice beer.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 29, 2005
Deep orange body, good whitish head. Strong aroma, caramel and sugar. Sweet with ripe fruit, rather one-dimensional and a bit cloying. Still it’s full-bodied and tasty.
