2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours out darker then expected. Even yellow-amberish coloured. Very big white head that holds very good. Don’t looks bad at all. Sour fruits, citrus and also some spices and hops. Not bad, but smells a bit like some soda...
Hoppy, bitter but also some soureness of the fruits at the taste. Drinks pretty easy, but more soda-like then I can handle for a beer... A bit sad, cause the taste on his own, and also the smell aren’t bad.

Mahogany clear. Small head. Nutty earthy. Licorice dry. Fruity estery phenols. Very strange complex. I think I like it.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear pale body with no head at all. Aroma is high on malty, hay. Taste has sugary sweetness upfront with higher very grassy, almost like hop cones, bitterness. Body is full, oily, high carbonation.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Bière très maltée, agréable au palais. Arômes de grains, de sucre candi et c’est tout. Pas mal.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at a random bar in Antwerp. Last beer of the night. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light fruits and light grass hops. Flavor follows with some malt and honey sweetness, a bit of light fruits, and not much else. Finishes a little dirty. Body is light but the maltiness of this comes off as too sweet. Medium carbonation. Meh. No thanks.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Chi l’avrebbe mai detto che John Martin facesse una birra più che dignitosa? Questa pale ale manca decisamente di luppolo e meriterebbe più corpo, ma è comunque un’esperienza piacevolissima: la sua dolcezza non è stucchevole, evoca miele, amarene, frutti di bosco, e si restringe leggermente nel finale soprattutto con una nota di agrumato (l’amaro è poco poco). Curiosamente soddisfacente._________ENGLISH TEXT HERE________Would you swear that John Martin made a pretty decent brew? This pale ale lacks of hops and would deserve more body, but anyway is a very pleasant experience: its sweetness is not synthetic, it evokes honey, cherries, red fruits and goes a little adstringent in the finale with a citrus note (the sourness is very low, instead). Curiously satisfying.
