A standard English pale ale. not as hoppy as some American microbrews but still quite nice.
easy to find in the US,
often combined with guiness for a tasty half and half.

This used to be one of the very best products one could get in the States, and the fact that it no longer is says more about the changing times than about the beer itself. Solid and enjoyable, this beer brings back a lot of memories for me, but there are far more interesting, demanding, and rewarding beers out there. Merely above-average.

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.
