Choos (604) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Good malt nose. Appearance is a dark tea red with a smallish thick head that leaves good lacing. Malty with some hop character and a roasty notes that balance well. A tiny bit oaky with caramel malt flavours, great mouthfeel.

This bottled brew poured a foamy medium sized light brown colored long lasting head that left behind a good lacing. The body was a softly carbonated transparent brown color. The aroma was mild with notes of sweet malt. The palate was mildly vinuous initially then settled down onto a more mellow malt bite with a slightly bitter finish. Very malty flavor masked somewhat by the vinuousness of the overall tone of the ale. A decent brew to start of the evenings ratings. Cheers!

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - MAY 8, 2004
This is a beautiful color, a deep ruby that’s fairly clear. The head is a bit fizzy, and fades incompletely pretty fast. This is a malty beer. A little wood and a good bit of caramel, brown sugar and cherries. Not a lot of hops present and a bit sweet in the finish.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Mahogany pour, thick foamy head and lace. Caramel or toffee aromas, sweet malts and a sour fruit. Sweet malts, caramel, hops, some spices and alcohol flavors. Thick, syrupy finish of alcohol and spice.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Deep red color and an aroma that is fresh and balanced between malt and hops. The taste is dry and rich with a medium-full mouthfeel. The cream-colored head is well-formed and well-retained. Not great, but a very pleasant beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Dark mahogany color with light off-white head. The aroma has residual sweetness with some malt & a bit of british blah. The flavor is very metallic with musky fig & crappy over-bitter european hops, unbalanced, bland. Finishes a little roasty & also metallic.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
(On cask) Malleable caramel malt bends into attractive apple syrup shapes...Slight roastiness lies underneath the chewiness and also undermines the horsy aroma...All ends in a somewhat chalky and fizzy quiet fiasco...

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 The bottled Broadside really shines through, bit more of a malty-fruity kick to it than with the cask. Has a thinnish head with little lacing but doesn’t detract from being a real mouthful of decent English ale.
