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.

AndrewC (370) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2017
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.

prawlie (1530) - ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2016
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.

Plovmand (7975) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle. It pours clear amber with a small off white head. The aroma is quite malty and light flowery hoppy. Toasted malty with bitter hoppy notes. Well made.

AaronTDubs (399) - - SEP 17, 2016
Clear amber color. Medium carbonation. Fruity and malty aroma, some caramel and a touch of hops. Starts sweet and malty with some light dried fruit notes, finishes with a lasting herbal hoppiness, too much in my opinion. It is just slightly off balance. However, it tastes much better when drunk than sipped. Not too bad.

CloakedDagger (2151) - - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with a tiny, white head. Sweet, caramellish nose. Medium body, sweet caramellish malts, lightly metallic, lightly fruity with a late base bitterness. Really just bittering hops here. OK for what it is, although the metal note is very annoying. 060916
