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).

Thick creamy head that lasted. Lovely deep colour with creamy mouthfeel. Not much aroma but what you can pick up is raisns and caramel. Sweet aftertaste with not much bittering.

Lovely hoppy fruity aroma. Dark brown. Looks like a proper ale. Undertones of caramel and fruit but with a hoppy punch. Fine drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark red beer with a bubbly head. Very light fruit scent. Flavour is fruity with malt but is a bit watery and lightweight given the strength. Drinkable but is, surprisingly, a disappointment compared to the bottled version.
