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 InBevís Samlesbury brewery. As of 2012, the US version was being produced at A-B InBevís Baldwinsville brewery.

Kind of a hard beer to rate. As a draught in England, itís some really tasty stuff. In America, itís only a bit better than your average macrobrew, and of highly variable quality.

Very good for a commercial beer. If youíve grown up on microbrews, you probably won;t spit this out but itís definitely not what youíre used to.

This beer must be drank from a glass of room temperature for best taste.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2003 Can't stand up to the best American pale ales. Or even the middling ones.

This is a great mainstream beer. If stuck in a bar where the is nothing but American crap, go for the Bass. Very clean and smooth
