Nothing much to write home about. A mass produced English version of a light English ale. Drinks fine.

Pours a beautiful copper color with a nice lingering head. Not much lacing, but the color is great. Very clear, and clean appearance.
Aroma is definitely of banana, and of roasted malt. I can also smell some caramel in there too. It smells really good.
Almost right away, you can taste the artificial banana in here. But thereís also some honey and caramel in the taste. The honey is a bit surprising. I do taste some medium roasted malt, but itís not very strong.
Mouthfeel is a medium body. The hops leave some bitterness. It lingers. Itís a little more bitter than most beers. But with the taste and aroma quality of this beer, it helps the drinkability.
Overall, I really like this. This is the first time Iíve had any beer of this brand, and Iím pleasantly surprised. It is delicious! I hope all Bass beers are this good!

안호이저부시 페일에일 5% ABV 페일에일의 원조격.바에서 누가 공짜로 건내기에 마셔보니 매우차가운잔 얼릴듯이 서브.찬온도의 짜릿한 두통,하지만 강한 비터감과 굉장히 잘 매치.목으로즐& 페일에일? \
지금 찾아보니 2000년에 인터브루에 매각되어 현재는 버드와이저 산하구나. 레시피가 바뀌었을지 궁금하다. 비터감빼고 밍밍한 맥주라 역사성만 생각했었는데 매일 밀러라이트나 버드만 마시던 사람이 우연히 이 맥주를 마셨을때에 느꼈을 충격이 상상된다.좋은& 미국

BOTTLE 355 CL. BB NOV-2015. Brewed in UK, 5,1% BAV. Smells and tastes like a macro-lager - some pale malts, a touch of vague boiled fruit, sweaty hops, dirty bitter and astringent finish. Crap.

This is a beer that one must get used to, your first one will taste, well really bitter, the 2nd one better, and within a few weeks, you will really tell the flavor. Pale Aleís are ordered as bitters in the United Kingdom. This beer is served best around 50F. I nice aroma although a bit strong. The olden bitter appearance canít be beat. Itís not a beer/ale you want right after exercising for working out but a great beer just for watching the game. This also one beer if you can find it on tap, itís often better then the bottle.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber from 12 oz bottle "product of the USA," thin white head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste dominated by bittering hops, not much else. Average body with high carbonation. Decent but undoubtedly not the real Bass.

Whenever they have this beer at a restaurant, etc. as an alternative "premium" choice versus the domestics like Bud, Coors, etc., itís a no-brainer to me. I put this in the class with the Heinekens, Coronaís and such, and am happy to have that choice. A good overall beer, without that sour bitter aftertaste. Sweetness from the malts, maybe a slight honey flavor. Pours a nice shiney medium brown-amber color. Medium light carbonation with a decent head. Good with Fish and Chips, especially if used in a Black and Tan!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber brown colored. Caramel and generically malty aroma. Taste about the same with a minimal hop buttering presence. Fine, but average.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 12 oz. bottle. Copper color, thin head with short retention. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Flavor of bread, caramel and vanilla. Slightly sweet with a very mild bitterness. Light to medium body with mild carbonation. Less sweetness and more complexity would be welcome, but, in limited circumstances, it holds its own. An acceptable pale ale.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Masuyoís in Asagaya. Poured into an English tulip pint. Brownish amber color with slight off-white head. Little to no noticeable aroma outside of a hint of caramel. Mass-produced grainy nondescript flavour with hints of caramel. Hops in there somewhere. What happened to the bass I remember of 15 years ago? None of the flavour or aromas I remember.
