COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
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.

AGlassDarkly (1) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014 does not count
A wonderful bitter, great aroma, enduring but not overpowering, colour is a clear dark red-brown, while the taste is a toasty slightly sharp balance of slightly stronger bitterness and mid-sweet maltiness, modestly bubbly, which lingers front and back after swallowing. Broadside is always refreshing, goes well with hearty, meaty meals, and is eqally refreshhing on a warm day, or comforting in a snug bar in a cold, wet winter. I love this bitter.
