COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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.

(Cask at Black Door, 20171022) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts, earth and mildly caramel. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, earth and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, earthy and bitter. A solid bitter.

Cask @ Black Door. Poured amber color, thin white head. Second pint from newly opened cask. Biscuity, mild nutty, malty aroma. Some light caramel, biscuits, hops, malts. Long finish. Good stuff.

Marmalade profile is pronounced and delicious in both smell and taste - perfect bitter/sweet. Great on cask, not so great bottled carbed version. Is lovely on cask though. Moreish

JorgeLee (2313) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2017
Cask, Tap on the Line, Kew. Deep brown amber colour, white sliver of foam. A very solid pint of bitter, bittersweet, nice malts amd an earthy, woody hop bitterness. Medium finish. Very drinkable, slipped down very well. A good pint. Utterly mystified by reviews calling it a) too bitter or b) not to style. Not much love here for the humble pint...

3.2
Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Cask at The Harp, Covent Garden. Slight hazy orange shade. White head. Tangy, winey, orange marmalade flavours. Good level of fruit character. Tasty enough.

Bottle, 500ml. A clear copper pour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of spice, but not much there. Flavour is instantly quite bitter, there’s something else there in the background but the hop bitterness has killed my tastebuds. Moderate to high carbonation. Don’t like it, far too bitter for the style, more like an IPA.

Bottle. Pale brown colour. Chestnut aroma. Clean, crisp body. Well constructed. Lovely light malt flavour followed swiftly by peppery hops. Really very good. My kind of beer.

Pint at Dog House in Vauxhaul. Very dry, with some light fruity notes, very bitter, too much for my liking. Hardly offensive but not to my tastes.
