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.

[bottle from asda] pours a deep red colour with an off-white head. The nose holds berry fruits-cherrys, lots of toffee malts. good body with a good kick of bittering hops in the finish.

DuffMan (8624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a clear, dark copper with a medium beige head that doesn’t last. Toffee malts and a hint of fruit aroma, with sweet toffee dominating the palate and a nicely hopped bitter finish. I finally picked out a faint berry flavour hidden in there, but only after I was more than half finished (proper temperature maybe?). Overall really nice.

Pailhead (6141) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is rather sweet and fruity with some Kool-Aidish rasberry smell. Pours a very dark amber with small off-white head. Flavor is very sweet up front with a mostly sweet, but slightly tart, raspberry flavor and some toffee that comes into play just before the lightly floral bitter finish.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2005
(Bottled) Very hazy, darkish red color with a medium, tanned head. Roasty and wineous, toffeeish-malty aroma. Fruity, somewhat roasty, lightly wineous, pleasantly hoppy flavor with licorice and rosemary hints. Medium-bodied, sweetish, very smooth and sophisticated palate with low carbonation. A very nice and tasty, roasty and malty, easily drinkable ale.

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.

TBone (14894) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2005
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).
