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.

Smells like raisins rum and chocoleet in a big old glass. Tastes like it too, finishes long and cocoa bitter after a solid mouthfeel. I have been drinking crap beer too much recently (been saving). More of these please.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Murky brown. Tingly carbonation above a smooth body. Toasty, multi-grain malts; only mildly sweet. Rich fruit notes -- apple, pear, raisins, currant/raisin, and orange rind. Drying hops deposit notes of grass and earth in the mouth. Bitter-ish aftertaste. Lively flavors and aromas. Not too shabby.

pivnizub (10187) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle: Dark amber coloured, firm off-white head, lasting; strong fruity nose (dried fruit, cherries, port), some herbal hops from behind, also some bubble-gum aroma; full-bodied sweetish-fruity start; fruity-bitter vinous taste with a tinge of roasted malts; dry, bitter-fruity, long lasting hoppy finish. A mighty brew, very well quaffable !

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Out of a bottle. Aroma of fruit and malts, slight chocolate. Poured a dark brown with nice off white head. Flavor was sweet, roasty. Palate was nice even though watery. Overall I liked it very much.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Smells very fruity, with caramel and spicy hops - very English, a little oxidized sherry/cardboard. Hazy ruby brown color, decent off-white head. Lots of caramel and ripe fruit in the flavor, although it seems a little watery, on the sweet side, a bit of roast malt and alcohol in the finish. Medium-full body, moderate carbonation. Good strong bitter.

harrisoni (17353) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle from Adnams Brewery shop. Dark brown/red beer. Excellent aromas of rich dark fruits and some chocolate and coffee with roasted raisins. Full in mouth and slightly sweeter than the cask version (maybe due to the higher alcohol) but still an excellent strong bitter

Found in sainsburies and had no idea that this was going to be as good as it is. Aroma straing away i realise is dubble like, fruits and sweet. Taste very similar, though the hops are quite present at the end. Alround a pleasent suprise to GarethYoung and mine’s tasting session, of sainsburies new range of beers.
