COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
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.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2011
Cask at the Magazine, New Brighton. Oh dear, wasnít this supposed to be good once upon a time ? Nasty aroma of veg on the turn and something strange and off putting that put me in mind of unisex hairdressers frequented by smelly old grannies. Drab insipid flavour not worth dwelling on. Really no redeeming qualities here at all. Wish Iíd had a pineapple juice. Bloody awful beer.

Draught in The Bell, Hove - 23/10/10. Hoppy palate and easy to drink. Was the end of the night so not many notes!

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
From the jug @ Star Inn, Bath. Rich golden-amber colour. Toasty, lightly caramelly aroma. Toasty character is very Bass-like (the bottle we foreigners are most familiar with) but there is more lively fruitiness to it as well. This has great appeal. Will probably re-visit for more gravity Bass.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2010
@ Star Inn, Bath. Rich amber with not much of a head. Smooth, almost no carbonation. Slight flaws in the aroma from the condition of the beer--not totally offensive but Iím getting pedio for sure. Warrants a re-rate, hehe. Great malt flavors are really pure and no flaws in this department. Nice bready malts and a fairly rich body. Great pint to try, even if just for sentimental value or to honestly compare it with the neutered keg/bottle variety.

Pretty average bitter, nothing stands out apart from a nice creamy texture making it easy to drink

Canít remember the name of the pub in England I tried this in but wanted to see the difference between cask Bass and the US version. OK but I wasnít terribly impressed, the cask may have not been tended well. Iíll have to re-sample in the future. Serving: Cask
