Handpull cask at the Castle Inn, Cambridge. Dark gold with a bit of white head on top. Pine resin, tropical fruit, barley sugar and maple syrup aroma. The taste is a well-balanced bittersweet, shifting quickly to a more pronounced hoppy bitterness in the throat which increases through to the finish and aftertaste. Full body, oily palate. Exemplary.

Hand-pulled pint in The Lord Nelson, an Adnams pub 100 yards from the brewery in Southwold. Poured an amber brown with a full head. Hoppy and bitter on a malty base. Mild citrus notes in both the aroma and taste but overall just an over hopped UK Bitter. OK, but I went back to Broadside after my pint of this: I prefer sweeter brews.
