Adnam's Broadside (6/10)

Adnam's Broadside is a British beer designed to commemorate the battle of Sole Bay in 1672.

The beer is a clear brown color with a finger thick off white head.

The aroma is one of yeast and charcoal.

The flavor starts with a slightly hoppy and burnt grain bitterness, followed by a moderate maltiness, and finishes with more hoppy bitterness.

The net result is a slightly bitter beer with a very slight malt sweetness.

This isn't a bad beer but it isn't one I have a strong desire to ever drink again. It lives up to the English "bitter" name a bit too much for me.

I believe this was purchased at The Andersons General Store or Kenny Road Market.

ABV: 6.3%
IBU: 33
My Rating: 6/10
