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.

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2007
The Chequers Inn, Bulkington. Have resisted rating this for a while because off-form it’s like drinking squash.... milky pint, resolving into a Tizerish orange amber. Oak, apple peel, Burton snatch in the nose. Mild-mannered apple fruitiness with a leafy hop finish, and a touch of liquorice earthiness as it warms. Delicately subtle, temperamental English sessions.

[CASK: The Bank, Manchester 04/04/07] Mediocre and not very tasty. About as reasonable as they come.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2007
(Cask at The Tin Goose, Heathrow Airport, London 29 Apr) Copper colour with creamy white head. Fruity nose with apricots and stifled notes of dusty hops. Fruity taste with notes of apricots and traces of dusty hops in a rather unchallenging finish. Nothing wrong with it, just lacking character.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 4, 2007
Cask. Pulls a copperish colour with a thin creamy head, laces well. Nose is quite hoppy with some biscuity malt. Mouth much the same, some bitterness from the start, some winter fruit, plum, and some citrus as it develops. Quite quenching, but a little heavy after a few.

scanovajr (630) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 22, 2007
Pours light copper with a minimal head. Aroma is herbal and hoppy. Taste is fruity and toffee with a dry bitter finish. Very drinkable and light.

bhensonb (11257) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Cask at The Mudlark, Southwark. Really light aroma. Maybe it’s malt. What can you say? Well balanced hop and malt, but not truly inspirational. Always an acceptable drink, but new brews tend to be more complex and interesting. Pity.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper colour with a small white head. Fruity aroma. Sweet malt taste with fruit and some agreeable bitterness. Good straightforward quaffer. Better than I thought it would be. Why is the bottled version so poor?

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Looks great in the glass, a reddish copper that has a small white head. Hints of butterscotch with a little toffee in the aftertaste. Goes down easy. Pretty nice and I like it a whole lot more than the bottled version.

Cask@Fox Inn, Lutterworth. Amber/Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is is light, dry and caramel, and the flavour is dry, watery and caramel. Overall a nice dry and caramel beer.
