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.

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.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - DEC 21, 2006
The smell was quite sweet. Beer had a delicious hop flavor and a great amount. Sweet enough to take a bit of the edge off the hops. Texture is still mildly watery, but not enough to be unpleasant.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Im warming up more and more with these English Strong Ales. An aroma of dark fruit, toffee and licorice. The flavor is really nice balanced with subtle English hops and a nice sweet malt profile which brought out some brown sugar. Finished off with a decent bitter/peppery note. Definitely would recommend this one.
