A fine British ale, just brought in to Smokeless Joe's. A good malting job with carmel, very clean and refreshing. Slightly drying aftertaste. The aroma contains the malt and the hops and it is acceptable. Very drinkable. Good white head, easy drinking. Understated carbonation.
Had again a month later and good bitterness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear brown with a tan head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is very malty along with some caramel and slightly fruity aromas. Taste is of sweet malt and some burnt caramel flavors. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a very malty presence that I am enjoying.

4.4/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A beautiful shade of dark red-orange-copper with a toffee colored head of firmsticky foam. Each looks great in isolation and they look even better in combination. As the cap deflates, thick strands and streamers of lace stick to the glass with authority.

The aroma is on the underpowered side. It's firmly toasted (sweet and caramel-like) as well as being moderately British hoppy. Good, but far from great.

Broadside Strong Original is very good beer. I'm not sure what distinguishes it from the lower-ABV Broadside ESB (except ABV of course), so I'll just ignore style and describe what I taste. This is a superbly well-balanced ale with plenty of ingredients. The solid-as-a-rock malt backbone delivers a lusciously sweet caramel flavor and a medium-full mouthfeel that makes the beer a pleasure to drink.

ABSO is also dark fruity and contains a hint of spiciness, possibly emanating from the well chosen, generous amount of hops. I'm especially enjoying the longish finish, during which sweet malt and earthy-spicy hops keep things balanced until long after the swallow. Its bold, yet refined, flavor makes English strong ale the perfect choice when assigning style.

I like this beer much more than I thought I would. While Adnams SSB was pretty good stuff, Broadside Strong Original is a cut above. I'd love to get my hands on the whole Adnams line, but I'm not sure they're available on this side of the pond. Recommended.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy somewhat dark amber body with a prodigious head that leaves quite a bit of lacing behind

Smell: Biscuit and caramel nose with a fruity raisin character as well; fruity orange hops in the background

Taste: Starts out very malty, with a wonderful caramel flavor; a tart hops flavor joins mid-palate; a touch of honey joins the slightly vinous taste on the finish as well

Mouthfeel: Reasonably full-bodied with moderate carbonation; a little slick

Drinkability: Different from what I was expecting, this is one of the better British brews I have tasted

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle: Poured a dark amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light dry fruits and some dry caramel malt is mildly interesting. Taste is also a balanced mix between some medium dry figs and raisins with some notes of dry caramel malt. Body si about average with good carbonation and no signs of alcohol. I thought the aroma had some fruity ester that could have lead tom something interesting but the taste couldn't really match up with the rest -not bad overall but I won't seek this again necessarily.

4.1/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

500ml bottle. It says 'Strong Original' on the label, so I'm going with this listing.

This beer pours a clear, medium ruddy bronzed amber hue, with two actively skyborne fingers of bubbly, thinly foamy, yet chunky at the same rate, dirty white head, which leaves some random proliferate specks of lace around the glass as it lazily blows off.

It smells of a strong nutty caramel malt, a bit of toffee, dark, acidic fruit, crystallized brown sugar, and leafy, musty hops - quite hefty, all. The taste is somewhat bready, sturdy biscuity caramel malt, sour, astringent pit fruit, a trifling metallic flinty character, some wayward oily canned nuts, and bitter earthy, leafy hops. A quite subtle, and wee warming rises in concert with deeper reflection (read: drinking) of the beer.

The bubbles are a tad zingy, and lightly cutting, but settle to a support role for the most part, the body a decent medium weight, and maybe a bit too tight and manor-ish to be dubbed really all that smooth. It finishes off-dry, the caramel/toffee sweetness deeply tempered by a lingering musty, old fruitiness, and the stalwart noble hops.

An approachable, and conquer-worthy old-world strong ale, the subtly of it all clear in the restraint in the main players' getting lost in the timid, though distracting enough off-flavours - to note: mineral and must (which sounds like an old Judas Priest song...). Still rather good though, and duly representative of the style, one, like its kin, having lost its place to the more effusive American take on things, sadly, I suppose.

3.85/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear bronze, color, good,creamy head, full and active, yet quick to crumble down. Aroma: very airy, some citrus, yeasty, fruity, but wide, wide open, almost empty. Yet, actually, pretty much dead-on for style.
Taste: tiny, fruity, slightly bitter flavor right off, then smooth, malty, easy-going. A little too sweet and malty, for my taste, but probably, again, right on the button for what they're trying to do. Yep, kind of treacly, but that's what makes Newcastle so damned popular. Nice, little hops, big, fat, fruity malt, very smooth and utterly drinkable. Body is medium, at best, and finish is, perhaps, too short, too sweet.
Overall, not to my taste, but a great example of this style.

4.1/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a large off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of dark fruit, caramelized malts and some pale hops.

T: The taste is malty and sweet with flavors of honey, dark fruit, caramel and some spice. There's a decent hops presence that brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, clean finish.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a good beer with a lot of substance that is worth drinking for a long time.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a semi-hazed caramel/chestnut with 4 fingers of creamy sand colored head. Superior head retention & average lacing

S: Cakeyness & some leafy hops, plus some dark fruittyness once warm

T: Minty hops, dryness caramel & herbal hops, plus a touch of warming alcohol up front. Apricot & pear mingle with brown sugar & leafy hops as this warms. Finishes dry, fruitty & quenching for the ABV. Almost pulled a 4.5

MF: Very creamy with moderate carbonation, super balance

Drinks very easy, despite the hops not really being simpatico with me. Cask Broadside about 1.2% weaker was one of my go to real ales when I lived in England. This isn't a bad substitute, although cask will always be better. A solid, sessionable strong ale

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Interesting looking beer, my first from this brewery which I guess one some Brewery of the Year award in 2011, not sure which award but something.

Pours a creamy looking 1/2 finger head that fades semi quickly but leaves a big halo ring of nice looking thick lacing, over dark but very clear mahogany brown color with some ruby light streaming through.

Nose has that typical English strong beer aroma, typical yeast, malts, and hops. Lots of fruity esters at first, typical from English yeasts, fruit cake almost with some bright stone type fruits and light bready malts. Very light phenolic touches underneath with a hint of booze that reminisces of beers higher than 6.3% abv. Hops bring a light herbal character. Lots of sweeteners with light brown sugar and molasses, caramel, light biscuit made with brown sugar, and again hinting at the fruit cake.

Taste brings a mild caramelized molasses cake flavor, with the sweetness rushing out to the front. Plenty of molasses and some brown sugar, with hints of caramel and toffee. The bready malts beneath that with decent sweetness really give a taste of molasses cake or rum cake with candied dates or something. Then light fruity esters come through, much less than the nose, but again typical of the English yeast varieties. Fruits add a touch of a fruit cake to the molasses cake. There is also an interesting caramelized almost smoky like coffee syrup flavor, it's a really interesting flavor to run along side the molasses cake and fruit. Then some light herbal earthy hops. The hops are interesting in giving some light grassy herbal flavors, but not the overpowering typical herbal UK style hops I can't stand, so interesting. The finish gets a bit more bitter but never overly bitter, typical of English bitters, it also dries a bit but stays somewhat sweet, more molasses and cake lingering, and a bit of the nutty toffee lingering.

Mouth is med to a bit richer bodied, decent carb.

Overall interesting, pretty much a good example of an English strong beer, that has characteristics of a bitter and a brown ale, with tons of molasses cake, fruity esters, biscuit, etc. and the hops add a nice bitterness and herbal earthy flavor that doesn't go to the icky taste I don't like. Drinkable, and something I wouldn't mind drinking a bunch of at a pub.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours dark brown/ruby with a rocky tan head that slowly descends to a thin, ever-lasting head. Quite a bit of lacing sticks to the glass.

The smell is bready with mild fruitiness.

The taste is of sweet grainy, nutty malt. Very smooth. Bitter, cherryish fruity hop presence balances out the sweetness. Just a hint of peppery alcohol, especially in the finish. Fairly mild flavor, but nice.

The feel is full, coating. Doesn't hang around too long, though.

This one is easy to drink. Mellow for the style, adding to drinkability. A fine, classic example of an English strong ale.

The bottled version of Broadside is 'old school', the cask offering now down to 4.7% ABV.

500ml Bottle, poured into two old 'Home Ales' half-pint countryman tankards on 6 Aug 2013: the wife wanted some! She too likes a malty, sweet English beer.

Looks the part, deep, dark brown with a full and rich tanned beige foaming crown.

Malty molasses rule the aroma and taste: this is a warming, malty brew. Caramel and toffee flavours vie for dominance within both the smell and overall taste. Hops arrive late in the mouth, giving a semi-dry finish and settle the whole thing down a little.

A classic malty British Best Bitter: ideal for those with a sweet tooth like myself.

Pours with a serious yellow-brown head that stays, leaving thick sheets of lace. High carbonation. Amber/ruby color, strong malty nose. Medium bodied. Rich malty flavor with some hops in the background. The brewer describes this as "A heart-warming English beer" which is exactly what he has brewed.

$3.45 @ Charles Street Liquors, Boston, MA:

Presentation: 16.9 oz brown bowling pin style bottle, best before date on the back label.

Appearance: Pasty off white lace clings well, weather brownish bronze hue is dark and inviting.

Smell: Ripe pear and black currant fruit mix as well as a light metallic malt sweetness. Touch of buttery yeast in the back.

Taste: Very malty with toasted and caramel like qualities, hops barley crest the sweetness and lend some flavor as well. A touch of ripe dark fruit with a hint of buttery yeast and alcoholic esters in the back. Finishes a bit sweet.

Mouthfeel: Slick thickness on the palate drops out after a quick prickle of carbonation.

Notes: A very flavorful strong ale with simple complexities. An easy pick to pair with a nice hearty sandwich for lunch.

Revisited this beer in the bottled form. The strength is still the adjusted 6.3%abv., with a BBE date of 01 June 06.

A: in a pint glass it pours a bright brownish hue with dark caramel hint, coming with a thick frothy beer head which just extremely slowly dissipates and leaves tight sheets of off-white lacing on the sides of the glass. Very low carbonated body.
S: caramel and dark malts combined with fruity hops--red apple peel, raisins, toffee, diacetyl, treacle, more fruit esters, and a hint of coconut even... All elements are intertwined to the degree of harmony, with a touch of caramel and dried sweet plums more than others.
T&M: a highly bubbly-textured maltiness hits the palate, coupled with slightly tartly-sweet ripe dark fruits and dried figs, and an underlying flavour of light caramelised sugar along with licorice, while the lightly herbal and fruity hops sustain well at the back of the palate; finished with a residual taste of sour-sweet ripe fruits and very mild bittersweetness. Somehow the mouthfeel is not so clean this time, with plenty of sugary feel staying deep down the palate, while the bubbly texture makes every sip slightly hard to manage initially.
D: less satisfying than my last bottle. I reckon that I serve this one slightly warmer (15 C) and that might be the culprit? Nevertheless this is still a quality brew worth sipping once in a while, esp. now in winter.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A deep and dusky brick red with a coy glint of pumpkin orange. It is by no means opaque but only shadows are visible on the other side. Tan coloured, ice cream float textured head is bespattered around the entirety of my pint glass. This lace lingers and lasts and sticks like glue. Looks great!

The aroma - dare I say it - could almost be considered spicy. Upfront the smell is very yeasty with subtle hints of ginger or nutmeg. Actually it's a definite cinnamon like spice character and this become more prevalent with warming. Beneath it lay a sticky, toffee laced, kind of scotch like layer of malts. The two compliment each other nicely.

Come flavour, the malt puts the petal to the metal and kick most yeasty notes to the curb. Sure there are residual hints of ginger or cinnamon but largely this is a big, sweet, sticky malty beast. Scorched butterscotch and toffee taste scraped from the bottom of a hop bed. There's a drop of scotch taste in there, too.

Those notes of butterscotch and toffee do quite literally taste scorched, and as result, the taste comes out a little astringent. There is a heavy-handed bitterness that compounds this but the end result is still something considerably mild. This definitely has the characteristic "sessionable" drinkability that a good English pint should.

This may be a lot more tame than something like the Fuller's Vintage Ale, but it reminds me strongly of it. It doesn't have the peeking alcohol or the intensity of flavour but it does have the same kind of satisfaction come an empty glass. This works for me on so many levels: pints at the pub, a full goblet near the fireplace, or with a hearty meal come cool weather.

500 ml bottle purchased at the LCBO.

Pours a cloudy dark orange, brownish hue, tight off white head forms, slightly fizzy, quickly settles itself down to a thin ring, no real lace to speak of. Smell is nice and malty, caramel, raisins, hint of metallic, some citrus, brown sugar, very fruity, a bit woody, nice. Taste is similar, very malty and sweet, lots of brown sugar and caramel up front, raisins, bread, very fruity, berries and cherries, bit of orange, metallic finish with a bit of chocolate milk, light alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, pretty thick for its ABV, with medium carbonation, with warmth from the alcohol. Not bad stuff, big malty brew thats easy to drink, but kind of simplistic and the alcohol is apparent.

500ml bottle poured into pint glass20/12/12 cheers Chris for the bottle and having such an awesome name

A a clear reddish copper with about as many bubbles as you could fit in a glass, a thumbs width of dense tan foam has great retention ending up as a pencil eraser top like island and leaves lots of random lace, sexy looking stuff

S a nutty malt monster with some nice fruity notes and lots of brown sugar both crystal and burnt, some earthy notes and the smell is quite strong, I can smell it from the table

T much like the nose with a fruit packed, nutty caramel bar thing going on that works well, some faint spice, lots of caramels and earthy hops, packed with flavor

M medium-full with mellow carbonation that give it a creamy feel, I almost expected it to be foamy and airy after seeing how carbonated it looks but everything's well done in this department

O solid stuff and a good example of an English Strong ale, malty and the booze is well hidden, I'd say this would make a good session beer but it would end up being a short session at 6.3% its pretty easy to drink

I really had no idea what to expect and it turned out to be pretty solid, I'm wondering what else this brewery's getting up to and I may just go out of my way to find out

On cask at the St. James Tavern in London. Dark amber/brown color with a medium thin light tan head. Thin and quick lacing. The aroma is rather fruity, with hints of caramel and malt. Medium-bodied and very smooth and smokey. Flavors of caramel, grape, and roasted malt. The finish is silky and long. This is a solid beer that can be found in many pubs/taverns in London.

Aroma is not strong but has tempting notes of malt and fruit with hints of molasses and toffee. It pours a clear, dark cola brown with a decent light tan head. Flavor fills the mouth with malt, caramel, wood, molasses and toffee with a subtle undertone of fruit, mainly apple and cherry. Smooth texture has plenty of fizz and leaves behind a nice malty, woody tingle.

Appearance – This one had a huge, explosive head, which is unusual for the style. The body is a dark, solid brown.

Smell – The light, toasted malts are subtle but well-defined. There’s a spritzy yeast character to the nose as well. I can pick up some wicked fruit like green apple and just a hint of alcohol.

Taste – The malts are huge at the taste. This is almost like drinking that liquid malt you can buy at a homebrew shop. The light yeast character from the nose made it’s way to the taste. The tart apple and some fruity sweetness round out the flavor profile.

Mouthfeel – This is full-bodied with some light woody notes that really smooth out the mouthfeel. There’s just the right amount of alcohol warmth on the tongue.

Drinkability – This one is a mouthfull, that’s for sure. It is thick and chewy and almost needs a knife and fork.

Appearance- Pours a one finger head with ok retention and recedes to a good film on the surface of the beer. Also leaving some remnants on the inside of the glass. Colro is a bread crust deep copper with no lacing.

Smell- A little sugary sweeet bread aroma with the good old Goldings hops make their subtle appearance in my nostrils as well.

Taste- Not bad, a little sweetness mixed with lots of bready flour and biscuits. A few earthy flavors hit the middle of the tongue. with a bittersweet finish.

Mouthfeel- A little dry and sweet, but mostly refreshing. This beer kind of made my palate feel relaxed.
