Foundry, Cant. Tap. January 2012. Boring lager with few hops and muddled malt. Not great, but drinkable.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - thanks to Canterbury’s #1 homer, Harrisoni. Pours lightly fuzzy gold with a light, white cream head. Doughy white bread nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with moderate, dirty hay bitterness, light grains. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Light dry hay to finish, some grainy hay, dry white bread dough. Good stuff. Fairly well-made British lager.

Scopey (12721) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Ian. It pours hazy light yellow with pretty much no head. The nose is tart citrus, light spice, hay, sulphur notes and some soap. The taste is dough, some sweetness, decent bitterness, citrus peel, herbal aspect and grass with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Light-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Ok.

Dull aroma. Simple pale malts, bready ale-like richness in the body with the esters, noticeable honey. Very tasty, strangely ale-like, I wonder if this is in fact a hybrid style, or at least brewed at higher than normal lager temperatures (compare Lithuanian craft lagers, for example).

ChrisOs Christmas Tasting. Handbottle courtesy of Harrisoni. Clear gold beer. Light dry palate. Nice neutral pale malt. Fairly bitter hops - noble tasting. A little grassiness. Dry finish. Bitter linger. Alright.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Foundty helles 4.1% cask clear gold lasting white head. Yeasty hoppy aroma. Not huge carbonation in the the mouth. Pleasant flavours and good hoppy bite on finish. Most people would take this as a golden ale i am sure. Fine 3.1/5. on keg gold slight haze lasting thick near whit head. Fresh subtle yeast and subtle hop aroma. Far more carbonated than the cask version. Still good hops on the finish. Some harsh bite from the gas. Yes pretty decent and likeable 3.3/5

Handbottle from keg, provided by harrisoni, fresh from the Foundry, Canterbury. Pleasant slightly bready malt aroma. Decent hop presence on the palate. Some honeyish touches. Clean and firm mouthfeel. Very good interpretation.
