COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered in bottles, cans, and kegs.
A version of Bass for the North American market at 5%.
Brewed from the late 70s at Burton. In 2000, after Interbrew bought the Bass brand, production was switched to the Ulster brewery in Northern Ireland. In 2003 production and distribution was switched to Latrobe for a 12-18 period after which it reverted to the UK, latterly at InBev’s Samlesbury brewery. As of 2012, the US version was being produced at A-B InBev’s Baldwinsville brewery.

On tap at bar. Golden in color when it got to be it had little head left. Aroma was a weak malt. Taste was malty gaining in hops as the thin watery brew slides down. Good for pitchers and pizza but little else. I seem to remember this was better back in the day. Maybe because the US brew has not had a home since 2000.

Fra fad. Klar kobberfarvet, skum som tynd hvid film. Nøddeagtig, sødlig malt, korn. Lav carb, kort eftersmag. Let drikkelig.

Good overall drinkers beer. I got acquainted with this brew at a bar. It was on tap and tasted great. The bottle version is OK. Can’t really go wrong with it.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a golden orange appearance with an off white head. Slight candy, light citrusy, fairly herbal, sweet grainy aroma. Flavor is a bit too sweet with some herbal / grassy notes, light caramel, and earth. Not a huge fan.

pours a amber color with a thick head. the aroma is very bready, earthy, and biscuit. the taste was very similar and very well balanced. i did not expect anything from this beer but i was completely surprised with how good this beer was.

First time rating, but have had many times. Poured from a regular bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer has a rich and thick amber color with a darker brown hue and a moderate-sized, good-sized foamy and creamy off-white head with average retention, lacing, and cling. The beer had notes of citrus and grainy hops, along with straw, lemon, and banana. It had a sour-bitter blend featuring deep grainy and citrus tastes with a backdrop of fruit. It had a very lively effect on the palate with very good carbonation, a lighter body with little thickness, and a zesty feeling.
