What the label says:

The first and only one.  In 1901 Maxim Ale was introduced to the North East.  Following an increase in strength in 1938, it became known as Double Maxim.  This premium quality ale is still famous among discerning drinkers for its rounded flavours.

What the Beerdrinker says:

A great beer, really dark with a thick creamy head.  It has a slightly yeasty nose with strong malt aromas.  The drink is smooth with hints of coffee and oats.  This is a superbly mellow drink.
