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.

DraftDodger (1035) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 26, 2016
Copenhagen 26/4 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Purple label announcing that this is a "Best Bitter". Very foamy upon opening leaving a pool on my kitchen table. Pours clear cobber brown with white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma of sweet caramel and toffee. Sour notes of orange juice and citrus. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is medium sweet followed by distinct bitterness with a little sourness. Bitterness lingers in aftertaste. Even though I carry a grudge for the pool on my kitchen table I must admit that this is a nice bitter.
