Less cavernous than most spoons, large but still with a real pub feel.
Mauldons - Black Adder5.30ExceptionalLovely, black burnt toast, coffee, chocolate and malt, a great stout.
Adnams - Broadside4.70Goodnice but lacking that distinctive Adnams taste.
Wibblers - Apprentice3.90GoodOK, unremarkable, nice but no outstanding hops or malt.

1930 visit. Departed the nearby beer festival, which can be found at the end of Hurst Street) and was told about this JD. Having visited all the others near the City. this one has escaped me since it was fitted out in October 2007. An ex O'Neill's pub, I was told and in the typical JD style. Not bad at all. It sits next door to the gbg Old Fox, directly opposite the old Hippodrome Theatre development. With a train to catch, only time for a swift half today?

Caledonian - Edinburgh Strong Ale6.40AcceptableDid not taste its strength, being rather appley and dry with little hop or malt character. Disappointing. My score 14/20.
