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.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2010
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.

fiammanghilla (910) - Genova, ITALY - FEB 1, 2015
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

VDuquerroux (907) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. Light mahogany clear beer with a medium white head. Medium lasting. Aroma of fruits (red berries), smoked, herbs, notes of caramel and alcohol. Nice balance between bitterness (medium), sweetness (medium), and sourness (light). Medium body, thin and oily texture, average carbonation, warming bitter-sour finish. Overall, a nice discovery ! Pleasant aroma and taste !

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.
