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.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2013
Ambrée transparente, effervescence moyenne, mousse blanche tombe rapidement. Première chose qui saute au palais: la présence de maïs qui donne toujours un goût assez désagréable. Pour le reste, le sucre caramélisé se taille la part du lion. Suit une amertume houblonnée qui n’est pas du meilleur goût...

Crockett (1055) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
I guess this is the stuff. Pours deep amber. Big soapy white head. Lots of lace. Malty and raisin, caramel, hop nose. Creamy mouthfeel. Cotton candy. Vanilla. Earthy mushroom. Sweet but round. Sweet/spicey soapy finish. Nice.

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

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 9, 2008
Bottled (5,8% ABV). A clear dark golden/amber beer with a medium sized and fading white head. Not powerful aroma that however has some aromatic and grassy hops. I like more the flavour that has some caramel notes and then the hops. Medium body, lively carbonation, medium bitterness in the finish. I agree with those who say that this beer has some resemblance of a Pilsner. Enough pleasant.

Bottle. Nose is sweet with some hop aroma. Nice amber color with a white head. Balanced flavor, sweet darker malt with a hint of bitterness. Full bodied with some bite.
