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.

Red brown colour with thick creamy head. flavour has a little bit of woodiness, malt and the sulphuric edge quite typical to beers from the region.

I must have been trying a different beer to everyone else! Fruity, nutty, malty aroma, complex taste. I found it very satisfying even at £3.20 a pint.

Cask. Pale ambery golden colour with a small head. Aroma is mild fruity and floral notes along with some slight maltyness. Flavour is quite similar. Easy to drink, and no flaws.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2011 Cask, The Cherry Tree, Leicester. A very temperamental beer. You need to get it on form. Unfortunately this was Bass in average condition. White head, brown body. Sulphur, malt, hop, fruity, caramel. Bittersweet, with a dry finish. 5 3 5 3 12 Rerate. Cask. The Craythorne Arms, Craythorne. In very good condition, can’t fault the conditioning here. Fruity. Citric notes. Malt, hops in good balance. Just a bog standard English bitter, no faults whatsoever. Bittersweet. Dry finish. 5 3 6 3 11

wyzzywyz22 (2066) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2011
Cask at the Magazine, New Brighton. Oh dear, wasn’t 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 I’d 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!

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.
