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 dark amber/orange beer with a nice white head. Decent aroma with hints of some grapefruit and fruits. Starts bitter with sweet notes. Nice bitter aftertaste. Could use some more body. Ok brew but not outstanding.

Attractive dark orange colour with a fine sized rocky head. Citric hoppiness initially with a fruity sweet maltiness that develops towards the finish. Medium to full body with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. Pretty nice in all.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 9, 2003
Dark amber colour, big head, soon disappearing. The aroma is quite fruity with floral traces. The taste is clean, pleasant, fruity (strawberry and plum), spicy, a bit sour. Good hoppy finish that gives to this beer the right bitterness.
