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.

Bottle. Pours a deep deep amber with dense white head. Head did not hang around very long leaving a little lace as it falls away. Aromas of honey, caramel, treacle and just a hint of sourness. Good stuff. Flavour wise lots of initial sweetness with more of the toffee and caramel. Finish is reasonably bitter with some sourness. Medium to full mouthfeel. Good beer.

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.

In effetti non Ť proprio cosa brutta, mi apprestavo a non proprio un capolavoro, invece tutto sommato Ť bevibile...

greenclansman (888) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - FEB 9, 2013
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.
