Broadside was launched as a 6.3% bottled beer in 1972 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the battle of Sole Bay fought against the Dutch Republic in 1672 off the Southwold coast, just across the green from the brewery.
Ingredients: Pale, Black, and Chocolate malts; First Gold hops
Broadside is a dark ruby red beer rich in fruitcake aromas, almonds and conserved fruit. The fullness of the beer makes it a good accompaniment for hearty food.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Nice dark cherry colored body, with a small off-white head. Good caramel and malts in the aroma, very smooth. Nice body, sharp malts and hops combine with some dark fruit accents (cherry, currant). Nice dry ending.

Lowe1983 (1632) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, toffee, dark fruits, molasses, and some sweet malts. Flavor is the same stronger on the dried fruit and molasses flavor. Wasn’t sure what I was going to think of this one but was surprised, not a bad brew at all.

AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2006
Dark amber color good lasting head. Heavy aroma with malt alcohol and red fruit. Powerfull taste with hops and a nutty bitterness.

ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle at Beer on the Pier, Chicago brought by Shelton Bros. Strong alcohol aroma with molasses. Cloudy dark amber color and slightly off-white head. Stronger and more flavorful than the Adnams Suffolk SSB. Pretty darn good, actually. I could see myself really enjoying a pint of this at an English pub. Good stuff.

brown with an off-white creamy lasting head. plum, raisin, toffee, malt aroma. slow moving lace. very malty and hoppy. lots of fruity esters. the malts are dark and fruity. medium bodied. cherry fruit juice aftertaste.

00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2006
Nice. Pours out a deep amber color with a very small white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is slightly hoppy, then over taken by the malts. has a nice fruit finish. Over all a nice brew. Something I will have again.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2006
Pours a nice reddish brown color. Aromas of dark fruits, hops, and a touch of wood. Flavor is smooth caramel malt, wood, and a nice hop.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2006
A red-brown colour with a white foam. A lot of foam from the bottle, be prepared after you have opened it! Some bread, medium sweetness. A litlle dry. Quite long finnish

thewolf (12798) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2006
Great red-bown colour with great (staying) brownish head. Aroma is of cherries and malts. It has a soft feel but not that much body. Tate is hoppy to begin with then changes to sweet and fruity. It ends up on a high note with nutty flavours and a new bitterness.

cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - APR 6, 2006
A malty, fruity aroma. Huge creamy off-white head. Excelent fully lasting head. Cloudy body, brown color. Heavy initial flavor. Good palate. I like this beer.
