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

Good English pint, appeals to both Northern and Southern tastes, good heart, good head, solid as an English oak, belongs in proper non chain pubs, tasty beer with great body. Good with crisps, nuts, sandwiches. Pinta Bass please landlord.

Sat in the lord Burton in Burton on Trent. Mid amber, Burton snatch crisp malt. Good bitterness.

A really smooth pint, with a large amount of flavour. One of my faves whenever I can have it.

Had this on tap tonight, in a bar that serves beer at its proper 40 degrees. It got me thinking. You know, Bass is really a pretty awesome beer. It’s dark brown and malty and pretty great. Sure, it’s nothing special like a Maudite or a Ommegang Rare Vos, but for an every day beer, this stuff is of the hook. Word.

Draught & Bottle: Bronze, copper color with a thick white head. Medium bodied. Aroma is malty, with mild notes of caramel, spice. Taste is toffee, malt, with some coffee/chocolate notes as well as some mild hops. When served fresh on cask it can be a very good beer.

@ 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 I’m 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.

Waited a while to try this one. Caramel notes, malt and nuts. Nice one. Worth the wait? well yes, but did expect something a bit more special, but I did like it. Love to try draft.

Two hand pulled cask pints in The Golden Lion, Boston, Lincolnshire on 6th June 2015. Really surprised to see I have never written about this beer before. Burton-on-Trent Classic. Tawny brown with a full head on both pints. Lovely blend of malt and hops mashed with water that does not have to be ’Burtonised’ . Light caramel biscuit aroma and taste, but more complex than that. Just a good beer.

Cask at the Cask & Barrel, Broughton St. Pours clear amber with a creamy white head. Paler than I thought it would be. Aromas of floral hops, light lemon and caramel. Taste has a mineral bite, sweet oat biscuits. Tangy bitter lemon finish. Nice.
