1 Pint Cask on the ferry back home – thx. to Unn. Pours amber with an ultra-creamy head and near phenomenal lacing – chemical or just the cask thing doing its stuff? Smell is mellow sweet caramel, lots of biscuit, lightly floral, pale-ish yeast. Taste is equally vague, plenty of biscuit malt, floral, bitter herb, yeasty, very light natural metals & tad oily. Fuller biscuit mouth feel, lower carb. Not really offensive, certainly drinkable.

Handpull at Newcastle Town Football Club - absolutely nothing wrong with this, a bit bland, but so much better than so many others I’ve had this year. Nonetheless, I can’t think of much to add to an average beer. In a dessert you’ll drink anything, in this case it was a welcome drink.

This is what I imagine as the archetypical bitter. Brown, boring and bland. Triple B. And I'm right. I like triple b beer. But this boring as. Like what an old man might drink. I know it's a good traditional drink and I appreciate that. I just don't appreciate the actual beer.

Very simple bitter. Pale amber gold with a frothy lasting white head. Smells of fruit and malt. Thin watery body. Tastes of fruit like peaches and malt with a woody element. Nice and easy but not special

Deep amber with a reddish tint; bitter fruit and grainy malt; hop bitterness in the finish; not much to say about this - all the key elements are present and correct; a sound, well-balanced, archetypal bitter.

Last time I tasted Bass was in August 1993 in Kilmalcolm, Renfrewshire. This is my tasting notes take at the time. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a loose foam white head. Slight metallic aroma with thin mouthfeel. Weak pale malt base leading to a poor range of noticeable flavour. Slight sweetness of barley sugar and green apple noted. Hop resin in the aftertaste giving a harsh metallic flavour. Finish has a slight metallic taint with a sweet note of green apple still evident. A poor session beer.
