Here's what legendary beer writer Roger Protz has to say about bottled Broadside:
"Broadside uses that juiciest and most biscuity of English barleys, Maris Otter, which is married, in traditional brewing vessels, with tart, spicy, and tangily bitter English hop varieties, Challenger, Fuggles, and Goldings.
The beer . . . has a tempting deep bronze/red colour, a sultana and raisin aroma with spicy hops, and, the Adnams’ hallmark, a powerful hint of orange fruit from the house yeast. Ripe malt, almost vinous fruit and tart hops fill the mouth, while the finish is long and complex, with intensely bitter hops, dark fruit, and chewy malt vying for attention. And, with 33 units of bitterness, this beer means business."
Those lucky enough to live near one of the better beer bars in the country may find Broadside poured from a traditional English beer engine. The cask version, at 4.7% alcohol, will make you believe you're back in England.
