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.

Icedwarf (1657) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2015
Donker geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en kruidig, licht zoet, rozijn en thee. Goed bier.

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 13, 2006
Pale ale, well that is the stuff one sometimes has to go for. Hard though if ale is not really available close to you. As such a very appreciated substitute. A full amber colour. Ale direction taste. Develops a light sweet taste and leaves a soft caramel malt cover on your tongue. Noticable though that it is brewed in Belgium, nonetheless an ideal afterwork beer.

Trolleo (1567) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 21, 2017
Malty aroma, some traces of iron in the background, it’s not good but it’s not bad. Taste is same. Boring. Extremely boring. Soft carbonation, bit silky, thin to medium body.

Ysok02 (1564) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Roba ambrée, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez sur la farine, puis le houblon, pointe de malt et d’épices. Bouche à l’attaque ample, crémeuse, belle bulle et finale amère et onctueuse, à la fois. Une bière agréable, généreuse.

HopfenWeisse (1536) - - NOV 8, 2014
Clear golden amber color with lasting head. Aroma is fruity and some hops. Flavor is fruity, malt. Quite heavy. Could be more fresh and maybe more on hops.

OllieBBommel (1531) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2012
[email protected] (0,33l) White shrinking head, stays. Color red copper. Aroma hops. Taste bitter, hops, sweets. Palate bitter, full, fat. Overall IMHO better than Palm Speciale (too sweet)

JoeinDahlem (1521) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2007
Nice amber color with white head that sticks to the glass. Sweetish aroma of wet straw and grainy bread. Flavor starts with a bit of honey before the mildly bitter tang of hops kicks in, but that turns the corner into a drop of caramel-sugar on the back end. Lively mouthfeel, nice for a pale ale but typical for a Belgian. Somewhat wet. A refreshing beer that’s a step too far on the sweet side to be good for session drinking. But that nice kick of hops saves it from being boring. I deem it a good beer.

nazzty (1376) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
Nice ale with a medium body and a hint of a sweet malty taste. Finishing off with a touch of crispy hops.

2.9
Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2005
From A Bottle.Amber in colour with a small head,aroma is of malt and oranges, taste is sweet with fruit and caramel and a bitter finish.

2.2
MBlessing (1312) - Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2015
Nur leichter Hopfen, leichte metallische Note wenig bitter von einem Pakel Ale hätte ich mir mehr versprochen
