Blog #88. Foundry Brew Pub - Foundryman's Gold. (Tasting session 1/5).

During my brief stay in Canterbury, I visited the Foundry Brew Pub on Stour Street, just behind my hotel. It is a fantastic pub-come-brewery with a huge selection of beer to try (16 or 17 I believe they have on tap - all brewed on site) and in our mid-morning exploration, we wandered into the pub (COVID safe and well organised) and I had a half of their IPA (read this review here). We then started our pre-dinner drinks here as well.


Little did I know, or read properly, that they offer a 'taster tray', five different 3rds of their range for £6.95 (£1.30 for any beer over 6% - fair enough). My eyes filled with excitement. My pregnant wife sighed with pain as she had seen this on the menu previously, but had forgotten to mention it to me. I wonder why. Anyway, I chose five of their range and away we went.




This is the first beer I sampled: Foundryman's Gold.





This golden ale has sweet, warming smell with low carbonation and no head. It is an easy drinking, no problems ale. Although brewed with Cascade hops, I wasn't able to taste past the sweetness of the malt, but I am happy with this as a good starting place.


It is the lowest ABV of the lot at 4% and I think that matches the flavour and strength profile of this beer.


A good start: 5/10.


Cheers,


-Ben.


Next up: Canterbury Pale Ale.
