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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2002
Clear amber colour with generous light tan head - good lacing. Delicate floral nectar, hops, celery, spices and doughy yeasts. Medium body. A smooth soft but generous hoppy bitter spicey start and less bitter together with malty sweetness middle. After the initial hops burst the remainder of the palate and flavour is a bit like a lowly carbonated Brit draught ale. The more I had the more I liked it.

Nur leichter Hopfen, leichte metallische Note wenig bitter von einem Pakel Ale hätte ich mir mehr versprochen

In effetti non è proprio cosa brutta, mi apprestavo a non proprio un capolavoro, invece tutto sommato è bevibile...
