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.

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.

(draft) A nicely balanced ale that’s probably getting a bit of an undeserved backlash for being so prevalent. With that said, it is a little boring. I’d drink this to drink, not for the flavor, which is decent but average.
