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.

What a wonderful beer. From the mid-1800s when you could see Bass ales subtly pictures in some of Renoir’s paintings to today, Bass has been a great constant in the life of so many. Eventually you get to the point where you can’t go back to the bad stuff and just get something like Bass every time. When I was going to Bennington College, I once hooked up with a girl solely because I had Bass beer stashed in my room for just such an occasion. She was a quasi-snob and I guess that little red triangle was just enough to fulfill her Anglophilic desires.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 A great beer when fresh, but highly variable considering the extend of it’s popularity and distribution. The classic British ale.

Thin white head over a coppery red beer. Malt and fruity hops on the nose. finishes bitter and dry. The American version of Pale Ale is much better.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 My tastes have changed since first I rated this. A little thin, probably dumbed down from the original recipe. Nice and hoppy, though, and generally decent.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Decent pale ale, although this one just doesn't have the hoppiness & spiciness that a lot of others do, seems like it's just missing some overall body, it's just not all there, and their new commericals are stupid & pointless
