THX for the sample draft @ Delrium Hoppy Loft. Others have entered this under the cask version but the keg version for me stil bellongs more under the bottled version far more than under the cask one. Traditionalist? CAMRA too mach maybe? Brown coloured, amber hue, white faint head. Nose is sweet oily caramel, floral hops & brown sugar. Taste is sweet caramel with herbs, sweetish oily with brown sugar, floral hops & sweet malts with faint hay. Oily body, this feels like one of the more a like macro go at the style & less exciting stuff comming out of the UK.

Described (as far as I recall) by top British TV chef Rick Stein as "Britain’s Best Beer". However I found it to have marmite like qualities - it takes a bit of getting used to, and you’ll either like it or hate it.
I remember it being a bit a bit on the thick & sickly side.

Pretty decent, lightly sour, chalky and astringent, prominent malt. Not very fizzy....

The bottled version of Broadside is ’old school’, the cask offering now down to 4.7% ABV.
500ml Bottle, poured into two old ’Home Ales’ half-pint countryman tankards on 6 Aug 2013: the wife wanted some! She too likes a malty, sweet English beer.
Looks the part, deep, dark brown with a full and rich tanned beige foaming crown.
Malty molasses rule the aroma and taste: this is a warming, malty brew. Caramel and toffee flavours vie for dominance within both the smell and overall taste. Hops arrive late in the mouth, giving a semi-dry finish and settle the whole thing down a little.
A classic malty British Best Bitter: ideal for those with a sweet tooth like myself.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle. Clear dark copper, foamy tan head fades. Aroma of dark fruit and sweet malt. Dark roasted malt, overripe dark fruit, treacle, caramel and toffee... gah! I’m getting cloyed out here! Soft carbonation, medium body, low hopped. Way too sweet pour moi. Some faint citrus floral hoppiness, finishes sweet, vinous and port-like. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

Wonderful beer once it had warmed up a bit (oops). Soft mouth feel with fig, grape notes and sweet, fruity aftertaste with the right balance of bitterness. Beautiful!

Tap at John Bull Pub. Deep mahogany. Aroma is wood, nuts and malty in general. The taste starts out rather toasty and roasty. This darker character in the beginning, is followed by a sweeter, "british" touch towards the end. Actually, this is surprisingly good. A lot of taste in this beer. I’m pleasently surprised :)

A good quality English ale. A good booted taste and a dark complexion. Not my favourite beer from a great brewery

Bloody gorgeous. RIch ruby red, sherry and spice aromas leading to a big full mouthfeel, loaded with toasted nuts and a hint of port.
