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.

Pors hazy brown with a pretty decent white head. Hoppy nose with hints of almond, raisin and yeast. Sweet, fruity flavour with notes of red berries and brown sugar. Chewy mouthfeel. Full bodied. Finish is acidic with a quite good bitterness.

I like this label...very colorful, brash, and sporty.....it almost makes me sport wood. The pour is hazy deep copper....the copper of a worn down penny rather than a new one. It is definitely not deep red. The aroma is caramel malt, figs, brown sugar, some hops, scotch. Tastes very caramel malty, with a great dark fruity/figgy presence, some hops, and some port. Very complex, solid balance, and a really good brew. One cannot deny the greatness of this beer.

Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Dark ruby color, good tanned head. Aroma has oak, hops, licorice and toffee - it’s even slightly earthy. Medium to full-bodied, bitter woody flavor. Some licorice hints. A bit similar to some Fullers (1845 etc).

Very enjoyable, cocoa and coffee flavors, mixed with rich maltness. Medium-strong mouthfeel to it. Very good

I liked this one more than the ESB from ADnams....Trying saying that feckin name 3 times real fast. Bitter malts....caramel and some chocolate aftertaste...not too bad.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Bottle at the Royal Mile, Des Moines. Pours a sorta darkish brown with a thin beige head. Nose of sweet malts, some bitterness is detected. A little thin on the mouthfeel....flavors of caramel malts, and slight hints some choco-malts too. The hop bitterness comes through in the end along at the end. Eh, it’s ok.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Pours with the appearance of iced tea and an ample beige head. Nice lacing around the glass. Aroma is straight malt with the stereotypical English bitterness. Palate is thin, but not too watery. Taste is a major malt infusion that is subdued by slightly tangy hops. Finish is the aforementioned English bitter. Nice beer, one that I would revisit.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2005 re-rate Still a deep red color. Malt still dominates the flavor but the hops are much more defined. Some toffee in the aroma as well. Lightly bitter flavor with a sweet finish. Raisins and toffee abound with some fairly citric hops. Still too fizzy for my taste but an enjoyable beer nonetheless.

A bit more carbonated and sweeter than I prefer but not a bad brew. I was not able to appreciate the hops past the sweetness of this beer.
