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.

psilosophy (555) - 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.

Douberd (3135) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at Cafe Samson, Nijmegen. Poured into a Martin’s glass. ABV 5.8% Deep golden orange colour, crystal clear body. One finger of white head sitting on top, good thick density and average retention. Medium thick lacing left on the glass. Aroma has lots of malts on it, then some grass is coming from the back. Taste also with lots of malts, some little caramel, very sweet, at least at first,nicely hopped to my surprise. Light bitterness on the aftertaste that seems to increase in strength and with a good duration. Medium body, good carbonation. Overall okay, nothing to write home about but nothing offensive either.

Goud/ koper kleurig bier. Weinig schuim. Aroma haal ik niet veel uit. Smaak is licht bitter en in de afdronk iets pittiger. Body is gemiddeld

Minderbinder (2480) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle 330ml. [5,8%] Pours dark golden with medium-high creamy light beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of sugar, malt, flowers, honey. Taste is of malt, sugar (really sugar, like candi?), honey, caramel, citrus, bitterness, flowers. Palate: Medium body. Slight sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Overall: Why put sugar in there? Too sweet. Not really refreshing. Subpar balance. No other major flaw.

leaparsons (8804) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2004
Clear amber with a small head of foam. Aromas are sweet spicy hops. Flavours are caramel and toffee with a decent level of hopping. Lacks body and real bitterness. Shame.

madsberg (10684) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. White lasting head. Yeast, some spices and malt in the aroma. Fruits, yeast, malt and sweetness in the flaovur. Is light bodied and has a short life on the palate.
