Contract brewed by Marston for Interbrew UK.
Also known as "Draught Bass"
Brewed to 4.4% abv, Draught Bass is still brewed to an original recipe using only the finest ingredients and the experience of generations. It is brewed with two strains of yeast to produce a complex nutty, malty taste with subtle hop undertones, which has widespread appeal to repertoire drinkers.

Holmen1 (3924) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 19, 2014
Fra fat i puben på Heathrow april-14: nydelig klar kobberfarge med 1cm cremeskum som varer helt til bunns. Lett floral og toffee-aktig aroma. Smaken er elegant balansert og med cremet munnfølelse. So smooth, very high drinkability.

In tap at the Cask and Barrel. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - toffee and resin. Some cream. Taste - more of the same. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish. Overall - another solid ale. Years since I’ve had this.

fabioanselmo (185) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - DEC 25, 2013
Aroma levemente frutado com notas de frutas vermelhas. Algo passageiro. Corpo leve com espuma densa. Uma cerveja com tons de vernelho e dourado escuro. Sabor mais acentuado que uma lager tradicional, mais forte, mas nada tão diferente. No paladar, leve amargor do lúpulo. No geral, uma ALE para ser bebida ’at room temperature’. Refreshing.

I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Bass, it being my regular pint when I first got into drinking proper beer back in my school days. While it’s not a particularly flavoursome or remarkable drink, I still quite enjoyed this. Pours amber with a white head. Flavours of biscuit and a touch of honey. Refreshing and easy to knock back.

Cask at the Express Tavern, I’d forgotten how good this is when well kept! Malty, lightly sulphurous nose, dry yet juicy body, crisp hoppiness, so refreshing...
