COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A very overrated but not displeasant ale. Your standard English ale mud brown more malty sweetness than hoppy. Fairly good.

berkshirejohn (6280) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2007
Chestnut with a think tan head; aroma of malt and caramel; smooth and full in the mouth, malty sweet with a hint of toffee apple; slighty soar and dry finish. Warming.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Poured to a brown color with hints of ruby red, with a thin off-white head that lingereed midway and left okay lacing. Aroma was muted, but slightly nuts and caramel. Flavor was somewhat malty sweet, and while body was fairly creamy, any true flavor was diifficult to ascertain. Although only 6.3%, the alcohol made itself known toward the end in both aroma and flavor, and the palate and finish were just so-so. Not a bad beer, but not great either.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2007
Bottle from Stoutlover72, Thanks! Pours a cloudy brown body body with good size head. Aroma of malt, very strong, with caramel and a nutty feel to it. Flavor is sweet but smooth with a nutty character to it but slightly sour(but not in a bad way). Enjoyable.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 29, 2007
Bottle, pours a dark brown with a large foamy beige head. Mostly a caramal malt aroma, with a touch of nuts and hops. Full bodied and smooth initially, imparting sweet caramal flavours. Moves through to some bitterness and some sweeter fruit flavours before finishing slightly sour and chocolately. Pretty good, better than the version on cask.

Bottle pours dark copper in color with a short tan head. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, a touch of grassy hops as well. Flavor is good caramel sweetness, a touch of toffee, some slight cherry, and slight bitterness on the finish. Palate is smooth and pretty full in body. Not bad at all.
