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

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

UPDATED: APR 13, 2010 I used to really like this. I still like it but it seems a pretty bit ordinary, compared to what i drink now.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2004 Bottle, USA 5.1% version from Rythym & Booze in Cleethorpes. Amber, thin and shortlived white head, and low fine condition. Low sweet nutty malt and gentle hop notes, slightly metallic at first in the mouth with some citrus fruitiness, some background buttery malt and a developing hoppiness that becomes mouthtinglinly bitter in the finish, although some sweetness hangs around to balance it out.

Had it on tap at TGI Friday’s. A glorified Newcastle Brown. Rough and dirty in the front, but decent malty sweet background at the end. Somewhat overrated. I prefer their Pale.
ty in the front, good flavor

By far the best beer I have ever tasted. It is a dream to one day visit Burton, and have a few pints at the brewery. I have no problem paying a little more for this import. Bass Ale is all I drink and I suggest every man, woman and child, over 21 of cource, try one as well. On second thoughts, don’t I’d hate for the supply to run low..

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

I remember having this years ago, thought it was wonderful. Either I’ve changed or the beer has (I think it’s the beer). Just an average brew, not a very good pale ale - go american.
