Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

AlenomoreExceptional03 Apr 2010 Still in top condition here. Complete contrast to Folkestone sample tasted earlier in the day. So good it all sold out this evening?
AlenomoreExceptional02 Apr 2010 Exceptional and stunningly good premium mild ale. Sampled four pints of this. The "key" with both the Maidstone JD's is to catch the ales when they've just been put on, as all three ales tonite were new and all were served in tip top codition. Roll on the festival!

AlenomorePoor03 Apr 2010 Having sampled four pints of this stunningly good mild in Maidstone the night before this visit, I was disappointed at the bland condition of this ale here. Had a word with one of the staff, but he thought it was ok!

IanPoor03 Jun 2010 I only got this because a friend in Scotland says how good it is. Diacetyl bomb. Hated it. Which is a shame as I like Leeds as a beer drinking city.

The Archibald Simpson, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire

RayPoor21 May 2010 Marginally better than the Ale Mary which I thought I was drinking at first. Less chocolate, more body but not a lot else.

The Time Piece, Dewsbury, West Yorkshire

Martin the MildmanAcceptable21 May 2010 Dark ruby strong mild, quite bitter with an earthy hop flavour. Not particularly mild in my opinion. My score 14/20.
