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).

Draught at The Linen Weaver. Deep amber with a frothy, white head. Sweet fruity malty aroma and flavour. Wish there was more of a hop profile.

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Cask in a pub somewhere in Suffolk. A deep chestnut ale with a foamy biege head. The taste is malty with toffee and a hint of liquorice with a touch of citrus too. Pleasantly bitter finish. Quite decent for what it is.

Cask at The Railway Putney. Dark orange or brown, still, small foamy tan head, thick lacing. Aroma is papery, card, prune, musty. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is rummy, buttered rye bread, twig, toffee, resin, drying astringent hops, spiced finish, palma violet linger. Pretty astringent and dry, which is fine by me.
