COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered in bottles, cans, and kegs.
Versions of Bass brewed in the UK for export at 5%-5.2%, as well as a US-brewed version 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 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.

rauchbier (3764) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2001
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.

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

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

Darkover (1534) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2001
UPDATED: APR 27, 2004 Copper colored with a big white head. Malt aroma. Flavor is sweet, malty and a little bitter.

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

Ok, but not nearly as good as all the hype.
