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.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Bottle: Pale orange, light fruits and cardboard, light bodied, light bitter and light earth. Bass Ale tastes a lot better when mixed with a Guinness or when not drank at all.

This is a great ale for not being a microbrew. It has a solid taste and demands respect.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 I used to think that this was the ultimate pale ale, but now that I’ve tasted others, it sort of, um, pales in comparison. Still a good ,solid ale, but watery and weak in comparison.

A standard English pale ale. not as hoppy as some American microbrews but still quite nice. easy to find in the US, often combined with guiness for a tasty half and half.

This used to be one of the very best products one could get in the States, and the fact that it no longer is says more about the changing times than about the beer itself. Solid and enjoyable, this beer brings back a lot of memories for me, but there are far more interesting, demanding, and rewarding beers out there. Merely above-average.
