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.

TBone (14158) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 2, 2006
Bottled, alc. 5.8% (BB 08/2006)
Copper brown, decent creamy white head, some lace. Metallic malty, toffeeish aroma, some skunky hops somewhere there. Toffee malty is also the flavor with woody touch. In the finish some Kentish hops, which leaves semi-sweet, hoppy aftertaste. Decent EPA:

thebeertourist (5094) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle. Clear amber with a big white head. Malty aroma. Flavours are rather more bitter though well-balanced by sweet maltiness with hints of pepper. Not bad.

Bullit (4162) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 25, 2007
Clear yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is of pine hops with some fruits. Flavour is fruity, of pine. Lacks complexity, but at least its not too dry and bitter.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2007
A welcome change of pace but is an unexceptional beer overall. Caramel, metal and candy sugar in the nose. Has English pale ale flavor qualities and is balanced.

bhensonb (12440) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Tap at Au Bon Vieux Temps. Light floral hop aroma. Golden color with a lacing white head. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Quite fruity in a pale fruit way. Very lightly bitter. Decent, clean, refreshing, semi-English drink. Makes a nice change.
