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.

Highly overrated beer from one of Britain’s largest brewers. It amazes me how many neophytes cite Bass as ’a great beer.’ For those folks I say, there is much to be learned. This ale offers little in the way of body, flavor, complexity or depth. This is billed as a prime example of true English pale ale but it doesn’t come close to the quality of some other English pale ales from smaller, lesser known breweries...and it’s certainly not in the same league as better American micro pale ales. I’m blown away by bartenders and bar owners who feel they’re doing beer geeks a great service by offering Bass and Guinness on tap. They actually brag about it. These folks need to get out more. Bass is nothing remotely special. No thanks, if this is all they offer at the bar, I’ll have an iced tea.

I think that this beer is HIGHLY overrated!! I think it is way too light and has no ’pale ale’ taste to it. I’ll stick with my American pale ales.

Lighter bodied than most pale ales, with mild malt and hop flavors. Not as hoppy as American style pale ale. Pretty good for a megabrew.

Consistent, but unspectacular.

A solid and dependable pint. Rarely dissappoints.

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.
