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.

Cask (handpump) @ , Cannington TA5. Amber coloured, quickly vanishing froth; very shy hoppy nose, very light fruity taste, kind of bitter fruitiness in the end.

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.

omhper (19309) - 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.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2006
Cask handpull at The Flute, Liverpool. Copper coloured with lasting white head. Still a very good session beer. Enough flavour to keep you coming back for more, without being overwhelming. Good minerality. Some caramel, some hop, some yeast. Always found it hard to pin down Bass. Bit of sweetness, bit of lemon citrus. Or was that the girl’s perfume?

TBone (12541) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 11, 2004
Draught
Copper brown. Creamy steady white head. Aroma is herbal and hoppy. Easy drinkable smooth malty palate. Some bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied and a bit watery. Aftertaste is oily and has some toffee flavor.

Oakes (12352) - 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.

bhensonb (10908) - 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.
