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.

I love Bbbbbbaaaaasssss Ale. Stands up in the bottle, great (fresh) on tap. Had in Ireland- cask conditioned- and it was AWESOME. Anyone who does not like Bass Ale does not like beer (or ale)!

Excellent with a meal, not an afterwork beer. I love the taste.

Though a bit better on draught, the bottled version leaves much to be desired. This just seems somewhat bland compared to many others I’ve tried. A ok beer, but there are better ones, especially for the price. The more I drink this the less I seem to like it.

Definitely the best readily-available lighter English brew; not as good as Newcastle and certainly not on a par with most of Sam Smith’s products, it is still worth drinking as a thin, moderately hoppy, smooth pint on tap at a place that thinks Heineken and Corona are ’world-class.’ Significantly better on tap.

Had a nice, dark copper color. Not too bitter, I thought it was a little too watery. If I’m asking for a beer to be more bitter, something must be off. Pretty good, but has a severely inflated reputation.

At one point Bass was the best beer you could probably get in most bars. Not saying much, as it’s largely uninteresting. It’s too watery, and doesn’t have enough malt or hops to really be said to balance the two. It apparently used to be better than it is now, but at this point it’s not worth the bother.

It’s pretty pedestrian stuff.

Personally I was not impressed, it seemed awefully bitter to me. But then again I have never tried it out of a tap.
