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.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2007
This beer has a nice brown color and a big head. The aroma is malty with nuts and fruits, just like the powerful flavour that also has notes of hops that suddenly explodes in an burst of bitterness that quickly fades out into a more ordinary bitterness. The alcohol is not detectable in the flavour. This is a very nice beer!

ekstedt (6679) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. Deep reddish amber to copper coloured, large beige head. Deep, fruity malt aroma with some burnt sugar, and herbal hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour is initially sweet, with a clear but not overwhelming touch of alcohol, and the finish is very bitter. A bit plain for such a strong beer.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy, amber-brown with an orange-white head that stands like stiff peaks. The aroma is floral over heavy roasted malts. Medium body, with a sweet malt flavor that finishes quite flat.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2007
A nice dark amber color with a thin white lacing. The smell is hops, hops, hops, but unfortunately not much else. Flavor is plentiful, but I think normal for this style. Finish was smooth with a hint of bitter. In short, a completley one dimensional beer. But it is exactly as described, A fine, heartwarming English Ale. Cheers.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle from Malt of the Earth beer club. Pours a clear coppery amber with an off-white head. Spicy aroma with some sweet malt behind it. Medium body with fine carbonation. The alcohol comes to the fore, in a fusil, malt-liquor-like attack. The taste is sweet and has some fruit, citrus and nutty notes. Spicy and somewhat dry finish. The bitterness shows up in the aftertaste.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
A very nice beer. Had with fish and chips in London on vacation and enjoyed. A very nice appearance and head was just the introduction to a nice full bodied beer. A must when you visit London.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2007
12 oz bottle via Malt of the Earth Beer club. This one pours a dark semi hazy orange/brown with a large beige head. Nose is a spicey hoppiness with some lemon notes. Tastes like too much roasted barley for this beer and orange peel hoppiness and an astringant metallic finish, with a dry carboardy chalky aftertaste. Medium body. Moderate carbonation.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Bottle, poured a nice reddish amber with a thin head. Malty, bready aromas. Similar flavors, toffee sweetness and a slightly bitter finish. A nice ale, nothing spectacular.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Deep red copper with a huge offwhite head. Grassy hoppy nose with a hint of wet cardboard. Rather sweet, caramel, some bitterness towards the finish. Quite full-bodied. Not quite there.
