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.

edpeg (855) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2012
0,33l bottle. Pours copper dark amber with, clear body with creamy white/beige lacing- Aromas are plums, sweet malts, some berries and grass. Palate is soft, silky smooth, medium bodied. Carbonation is soft and flat but mouthful. Taste is sweet malts, some caramel, and a dry lingering hops taste. Finish is mild, dry to medium bitter. Overall quite balanced ale, little weak on hops and watery in the end but not too sweet.

A fast swelling firm head that captures a smooth nice aroma. Hoppy, but surprisingly sweet. A bit malty, but nothing apparent. Lots of flavor in a well balanced mix.

Spina in un bar ad arenzano. Ambrata con schiuma così così. Si beve abbastanza bene. Un po' di luppolo ma metallico. C'è di peggio comunque. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
