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: 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

Not the most complex of pale ales, but it’s pretty good and readily-available. A reliable beer for bars without a very diverse stock.

Basically the Budweiser of English beer (but still light years beyond Bud!)

Full bodied and sparkling with mildly fruity/apple hops. Always dependable.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2001
I think that this Pale is of lower quality as other less-mass-produced, but it has a malty, full flavor to it; no big hoppy prescence though

Seems slightly bland after having pale ales by Sierra Nevada, for instance, but it will do. Mix with Guiness for a truly glorious concoction!
