Available in pasteurised bottles and cans. Produced at Robinsons until Maxim opened their own brewery in 2007.
NOTE: The cask version has a separate entry.
Double Maxim is brewed using Maris Otter & Crystal Malts and English Golding Aroma Hops. It delivers a mouth of full and rounded flavour that is well balanced and smooth and leaves a pleasant and lingering and slightly sweet aftertaste.
Roger Protz described it as "an undoubted classic. It is a fine example of a North East brown ale. It is a good balance of ripe grain and spicy hops, with a long bittersweet finish."

Pours clear, carmel colored. A great deal of pillowy tan head. Aroma is herbal. Flavor goes toward the sweet end, though there’s a bit of pricklyness and bitter on the finish.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a small head. Flavours or caramel and malt. Drinkable, but not great. Better than Newcastle Brown and at least it’s brewed in the North East.
