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.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of Belgian malt with dry English hops with some light fruity ester. Taste is also a well balance mix between some lightly sweet Belgian style malt with some notes of dry hops with some fruity ester. Medium body with some good carbonation. Definitely better then expected with a nice refreshing factor.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2008
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. FE16/08.

App.: Medium-amber, clear, moderate off-white head. Aroma: Grain and loads of apple juice, both old and new, a touch of spice (maybe?), some sticky toffee; hops is conspicuously absent. Palate: Medium body and effervescence. Flav.: Lots of old apple juice and apple cider, some toffee, a bit of spice, a little wood and cardboard; an odd sweet/bitter finish.

Horrific. And boring.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Bière ambrée, orangée. Col de mousse blanc moyen et persistant qui laisse des dentelles crémeuses. Nez houblonné, de caramel, de céréales un peu torréfiées. Peut-être un peu d’agrumes. Goût sucré avec une finale en amertume. L’alcool est très relevé, proche du scotch, de rhum brun. Fort, mais agréable. La bouche est ronde, crémeuse et liquoreuse. C’est une bonne bière.
