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.

Bottle. Very similar to the usual British pale ales although the taste is a bit milder and the gas is a bit stronger. Not bad, not good.

GenkiGonzo (824) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 17, 2015
Draught at Kuppers Kolsch on Imadegawa. Golden amber with creamy head. Soapy aroma, but I think that is the poor line condition at the bar. Light floral hop flavour. Not much bitterness.

Light orange clear pour. Some hop character but not much. Some mild malts but not much. Not a drain pour but I only drink when itís free at the craps table.

Nothing much to write home about. A mass produced English version of a light English ale. Drinks fine.

Pours a beautiful copper color with a nice lingering head. Not much lacing, but the color is great. Very clear, and clean appearance.

Aroma is definitely of banana, and of roasted malt. I can also smell some caramel in there too. It smells really good.

Almost right away, you can taste the artificial banana in here. But thereís also some honey and caramel in the taste. The honey is a bit surprising. I do taste some medium roasted malt, but itís not very strong.

Mouthfeel is a medium body. The hops leave some bitterness. It lingers. Itís a little more bitter than most beers. But with the taste and aroma quality of this beer, it helps the drinkability.

Overall, I really like this. This is the first time Iíve had any beer of this brand, and Iím pleasantly surprised. It is delicious! I hope all Bass beers are this good!
