Adnams Broadside commemorates the fierce battle of Sole Bay fought against the Dutch Republic in 1672 off the Southwold coast, just across the green from our brewery. The fullness of the beer makes it a good accompaniment for stews and steak or kidney and ale pies. All sausage dishes complement Broadside well. A mature cheese ploughmans or cheeseboard of hard English cheeses are a perfect match for bottled Broadside. (Contains barley). Pasteurised Bottle.

Ambrée/rouge, mousse blanche moyenne. Nez malté, biscuit, caramel, gâteau. Bouche légèrement sucrée, pudding et caramel, bel houblonnage sur des houblons herbeux et poivrée, belle amertume, bonne longueur. Le style est sympa, on est vraiment sur une bière typiquement anglaise !

Bottle 500ml. Poured into a nonic pint glass. Initially served too cold so aroma was suppressed. When it warmed up a little, the aroma was soft but smelled a little like fruitcake with brandy - but far more subtle. Very nice. Poured a deep ruby red / chestnut colour. Tight cream coloured foam, which was about a finger width and held nicely leaving lacing all the way down the glass. Fairly mild sweetness but full tasting. Silky, velvety smooth palate. Short to medium finish with the fruitcake flavour coming in again at the finish, followed by a hint of alcohol which adds to the boozy fruitcake feel. Definitely needs to be at the right temperature to appreciate properly. Didn’t get half of what I’ve written during the first half of the drink and it improved 500% as it warmed up. This is a must have repeat for me. Awesome beer. Wow!
