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.

jaghana (4302) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 26, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A yellow amber ale with a huge head that remains properly. Smell is very nice on hops and malt. Aroma is very nice too, wonderful hop flavor and bitterness, nice malt and sweetness, finish is caramel like and with a long harmonious bitterness and floral notes. Nice experience.

bluebetty (1019) - 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.

Diabobale (252) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Una strong ale ben definita. E’ una pale in piena regola inglese seppur prodotta in belgio. Molto beverina

Leighton (12625) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a fluffy, white head. Some sugary, bready malts in the nose. Medium to big sweet flavor, bready, with some sweet fruits, white sugar, fine straw. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, clean, sugary finish, with basic bready pale malts, mild bitterness, some sweet hay, toasted sugar, maple, floral hops and lightly toasted grass. An OK beer, though not particularly impressive.

Een goede, degelijke Pale-Ale. Niet de beste dat er te vinden is, maar is wel heel degelijk

Japalo (1321) - DENMARK - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle@home. Mahogany clear. Small head. Nutty earthy. Licorice dry. Fruity estery phenols. Very strange complex. I think I like it.
