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.

olsvammel (7289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle at Liquid Bar in Luxembourg. Metallic smell with a light bready aroma. Light taste, bready with some light hops. Nothing special, the metallic smell is a bit disturbing.

2.7
Maakun (6434) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Clear Amber with off white head. Lots of caramel, grapes, peach, skunky, vegetal bitterness. Tate is medium sweet with a bit unpleasant bitter finish. Some lingering rye bread. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not very good.

lbianchi66 (423) - FRANCE - JUN 4, 2015
Robe dorée, légèrement orangée. Mousse assez peu. Beaucoup de fruits (pêche et agrumes) et d’esters. Assez longue en bouche. Texture légèrement syrupeuse. Malheureusement, l’arrière goût est assez déplaisant: goût métallique et aigreur moyenne.

Salmaneser (173) - BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Clear golden/orange beer, white head. Fruity aroma, hints of citrus. Taste starts off good, bitter, but then an unpleasant sourness kicks in. Too bad, would be a decent beer otherwise.

2.5
Vighals (4461) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
Gulbrun klar med fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lite lukt, noe fruktig. Søtlig smak, noe brent karamell. Lett bitterhet i avslutningen. Tørr

A very good offering from John Martin. Good hops, well-balanced alcohol and bitterness, some citrus, altogether a very good classic pale ale, much better than many from Britain or the US.

Nice brew, good carbonation, little head, fruity, estery, some metallic notes though....peach, easy going....

3.3
SkillsFactory (738) - ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Ambrata, limpida, mediamente carbonata, corpo medio-leggero, buona ritenzione della schiuma che lascia tracce sulle pareti del bicchiere. Aroma di pesca fresca e malto d'orzo, man mano che si scalda subentrano note metalliche. Stessa cosa al palato, retrogusto equilibrato in parte dall'amaro erbaceo del luppolo. Buona bevibilità.

This beer is certainly not bad, but it is not something special either. Just good beer.

2.6
markextrae (4485) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2015
Shared bottle. Deep golden to orange pour with a white head. Aroma of soap, malts, iron, Some citrus, slight fruity, herbal notes, weird aftertaste. Don’t like it at all
