Though I'm not much of a spirit drinker I was curious to try Spirit of Broadside when I saw it. Made from distilled beer and matured in oak casks for a year before bottling it's an eau de vie de biere. The boiling with hops part of beer making seems a bit wasteful for something you're going to distill anyway, but I have to say as a beer drinker it did make it more interesting to me.
Sadly that fact I very seldom drink spirits was telling when it came to the tasting. I found it as rough as a badger's arse, so to be fair to Adnams I'll add that a whisky drinking friend seemed to enjoy it and said it was "spicy" and "fruity".
