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.

Beershine (5218) - 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

Iíve never really liked it, even in the days when it was brewed in the union sets in Burton. I suppose malt dominates, as any hop flavour is more or less absent. Inoffensive enough but just not my cup of tea.

Cask conditioned handpump Lamplighter Northampton A dark copper coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. Some Burtonic snatch in the nose with some toffee and old fashioned bittersweetness, A reasonable depth of flavour. Not bad at all.

Cask at the Express Tavern, Kew Bridge, 26th Oct 08. Ultra clear amber but no head. Slight sulphurous Burton hard water aroma. Malty kick and ok weight. A drinkable enough session bitter.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2008
Handpulled cask at the Express Tavern, Kew Bridge. I havent tried Bass for years. I can remember when it was still brewed in Burton Unions. I heard that this pub sells a lot of it so I thought I would give it a go for old times sake. As I expected it is now just a token amber fluid linked to a once great name that sold out for short term gain.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 A good beer, very likeable, can be good value, real solid ale, worth a go. Yes, iíd recommend Bass Ale indeed. Malty and also somewhat nutty flavour.
