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.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Enjoyable. Mahogony body, great light brown head. Toffee and dark malts, with restrained but fully adequate British hopping. Sweetness has notes of plums and chocoolae, but nicely offset by the hops..

12 oz bottle labeled 6% abv. Beautiful clear mahogany pour with a firm, long lasting, tan head. Nice malty, sweet aroma. The flavor is excellent, complex and interesting. Starts out malty sweet but not overly so, becoming tangy and tingly on the tongue, and then a late bitterness kicks in after the swallow, which lasts a while. An interesting variety of flavors, well matched and balanced. Loads of English character in this one, and a real pleasure to drink. Picked up a 4-pack for $9.99 at The Fresh Market, Jacksonville, FL. Maybe a little pricey there, but not outrageously so.

The aroma has raisins, yeast, brown sugar and carrots. The appearance is red-brown with a large head. The flavor is very sweet with plenty of bitterness and alcohol. There are also the elements from the aroma. The palate is just slightly chewy. Despite some good qualities it has a medicinal aftertaste. This is ok.

Nose is caramel, port, apple, bananna, sweet and wonderful. Flavor is not as sweet as expected - apple, toffee, rich amazing malt. Hops are there but hang perfectly in the back. Some raisin. Toffee/plum finish.

Nice dark color and good head with good lacing. This one went down really smooth, dispite the stronger alcohol content. Though it comes in a four pack it was still a good buy.

Bottle printed Best Before Date 23 Nov,04. Im consuming it today (July 3rd, 06). Didnt know I was buying a vintage brew. Pours brown to amber in color with tan head. Malty aroma. Rich and varied malt flavor with caramel, molasses and toffee sweetness combined with a more grainy malt. The hop influence is very light, could be the age. There is also a bit of fruitiness from the yeast.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Rich mahogany copper color with a big frothy white head and decent lacing. Lightly doughie malt aroma, not too strong, but good. Starts malty with tones of nutieness, a sweeter doughie middle that is fairly creamy with a lightly bitter finish. Smooth and tasty, turns slightly sour as it warms or it could be quite good.

onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle 6.3 %... Beautiful Hazy dark amber color with okay head. Fresh fruity malt and hops in a brillant mix. Not quite strong enough and maybe the finish is a bit too bitter. But a great beer compared to the prince hear in Denmark.

eaglefan538 (3042) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Bottle said 6.0% ABV. Ah, I wasnt impressed. Dark brown color with a nice head and decent lacing. Aroma was somewhat buttery, as with many an English Ale. This one tasted of caramel and toffee with a buttery type flavor. There was a little bit of hops in the finish, but nothing overwhelming. Mouthfeel was the highlight, nice and creamy. Otherwise, just another beverage.
