Our signature beer, Foundation Bitter, strives to be that elusive bitter that eschews pretension, is neither too hoppy nor too bland, is as good a second pint as a first, is great on its own, but accompanies food well. In short, a decent, honest sort of a pint.

bottle at home from ales by mail
attractive pale copper brown with beige tight head. slight citrus notes on a biscuity background, low bitterness, moderate body, pleasingly malt led with a touch of floral hopping (possibly cascade). pleasant enough std bitter, good level of carbonation and easy drinking.
