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.

[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)

HopfenWeisse (1516) - - 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.

JoeinDahlem (1479) - 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.

Trolleo (1478) - 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 (1397) - 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.
