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.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2005
Lots of carbonation and an unusually large, creamy head. Some hops in the flavor but mostly malts. This is actually so sweet it’s like drinking syrup.

psilosophy (512) - 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.

Alusmamuts (499) - LATVIA - FEB 28, 2013
Light brown with light yellow rich cap. Rich nice pale ale taste, but without specific notes, mild afterbitterness at the root of tongue.

androman (492) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle @ home. Amber color white head sparkling. Sweetish smell, and slightly sweet taste with some fruit and honey, light bitter. Medium carbon, moderated bitter aftertaste. Interesting, tasty and refreshing.
