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.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2005
Dark orange, initially large creamy head, which quickly subsides. Nose like many pale ales, but fruitier. Taste full of malts, but with a fruity body, followed by a deliciously sharp, bitter aftertaste with hints of spice. Overall, very nice for an English pale ale; more taste than what is usual.

tderoeck (6161) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2010
*** bottle was 2 years past expiration date *** Pours a clear amber beer, beige creamy head. Smells like caramel, pear and banana, most likely due to it’s age. A pleasant mouth feeling, still enough carbon. Tastes fresh and little sour at first, continues to a sweet malty taste with caramel. Aftertaste is a little sweet, roasted malts and some acidity, again: maybe due to it’s age.
