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.

I love the pb&j refrence!!! Definitely middle of the road. I wonder what a true pint from the UK would taste like.

I will drink this beer at a bar that does not serve other ales. Clearly this is not my favorite. It lacks bite and flavor.

This is probably my favorite ale. It’s more sweet than bitter and has a nice flavor.

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.
