Who can ignore John Martinís 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.

Nate (4247) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Rich malty nose, sweet, with nice hoppy aroma, hop oil, light citrus-grapefruit. Refreshing to have this aroma after so many Belgian ales. Medium-dark amber clear with foamy white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-light carbonation. Starts with mild acidity, light sweetness, and good hop notes. Caramel malts, some saltiness, but balanced with medium bitter hops, fruity. Overall, a pretty smooth pale ale. Easy drinkiní. Nutty sweet after, and just a little bitterness.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2004
Coppery color, little white head. Floral aroma with some citrus, rich aroma indeed. Flavor has some roasted tones and chocolate, fruity sweet end with very dry hops. Hops make flavor to be somehow spicy. Dry spicyness lasts in aftertaste. Medium bodied.

A very nice and balanced beer with a beautifull name. It has a very well composed smell and taste. The name of this beer is perfect ;-) and the labels is also very nice

McWorta (1558) - 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.

Draught at John Martinís Pub, Trieste, Italy. Golden/amber coloured, medium pale brown head, slight acidic nose. Very hoppy and fruity aroma with slight herbal notes. Pleasant moderate bitterness at the end.

Diabobale (469) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Una strong ale ben definita. Eí una pale in piena regola inglese seppur prodotta in belgio. Molto beverina

budtzy (4) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2015 does not count
Bready og cornish aroma. Clear straw colour with nice foam. Medium sweet. Full body, lively carbonation, and bitter finish. A nice heavy but clear tasting beer. Not to far from German helles beer.
