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.

Fukito (991) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 27, 2007
Cask @ Old White Swan, november 07. Shinny golden color with a small white head (sparkler). Skunky, flat, dull flavor with some oxidized notes. Boring. Medium to light mouthfeel, tired and dull. Sad. Oxidized, ropey aroma. Sick. Sad, tired bitter.

jerryballoono (32) - Urgup, TURKEY - DEC 6, 2007
Pint draught straght from the cask at The Dolphin, Plymouth. Light brown IPA with very small head, low carbonation, sulphorous nose, predominantly malty & full bodied with a bitter aftertaste. Still a classic IPA if you can find it well kept.

sm89walt (1849) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask - Two Sawyers, Canterbury. An amber beer with a nice, creamy white head. Grainy caramel aromas with some hoppy earthiness. Monotonous caramel maltiness with a touch of citrus. Smooth on the palate with a short finish. Nothing exceptional.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2007
Cask@ The King’s Arms, Waterloo. A nice nose of cream and vanilla - very ESB like. Body somewhat thinner than an ESB. A slight unpleasant alcohol and metallic aftertaste on the tp of the tongue. Overall a decent beer for a couple of pints but no more.

Cask. At The Red Lion, Crown Passage off Pall Mall, London. Shared with my wife, who quite liked it; me ... meh. Poured amber-tinged gold with a smallish off-white head. Up-front aroma of sweet light grain malt, vaguely fruity, and a little tart, odd in a bitter, I thought - the light hops seemed a bit harsh and acidic, even to the nose. The taste - yes, quite acidic - not strong at all, just a somewhat harsh dry hop with acidic intrusions, at least compensating for an overly sweet malt backbone - is that really dry Kent hops in there? Wish I could tell ... Average body, extremely quick finish, at least the acidity doesn’t linger on the tongue, and made this unique in my short experience of cask bitters this trip - as I said, this could have been overly sweet, almost cloying, but that was compensated for.

a standard bitter pretty much what everybody has been saying about this beer- amber, nice head and lacing, malt and vegetable and a touch of english hops. kind of a bad aftertaste from the vegetable and it is just a tad sweet. i will pass.

omhper (22327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
Cask at Cask and Barrel, Edinburgh. Amber colour. Sweaty aroma of boiled vegetables. Sweet and fruity, medium bodied. With it’s mushy mouthfeel, the stale boiled vegetables and it’s lacklustre overall character it does nothing to convince of seeking it out again.

On tap at Old Chicago. Pours a nice lighter amber. Has a very pleasant, sweet aroma. The taste was sweet, made me think of apples and honey. A bit too sweet for me and made it a little difficult to finish the pint. Would have been better if the sweetness was toned down a little, or maybe balanced out by some bisquity malt. Not a bad brew, just not for me.
