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.

Nothing wrong with it, but also nothing to write home about. Pours beautifully and goes down smooth with a slightly sweet taste.

High Quality, enjoy it everytime. In bottle or on tap, it is all good.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2004 Copper colored with a big white head. Malt aroma. Flavor is sweet, malty and a little bitter.

Overrated mass produced crap. Bass is to England as Bud is to America. Not really that good on tap or in a bottle.

Ok, but not nearly as good as all the hype.

There are others I like better, but I have always enjoyed this one.

I had this draught in Victoria, BC, and maybe it was that specific beer, but I was highly unimpressed. At times unpleasently bitter, but still a good, sweet hop taste to keep you hanging. Very much a thirst quenching, keep it cold beer.

in the bottle this is pure funk everytime, on draft it is a fantastic ale with pleasant citris overtones not present in the bottle version.
