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.

Golden beer with a thin frothy head. Mild fruit aroma and a fruity, watery flavour and the finish is a bit watery too.

Clear light pour with little head. Mild biscuity malts with mild hops. Very drinkable with a nice mineral aftertaste. Remember the days when this Anchor Steam & Sam were all I could find that was drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with a thick off white head. Malty nose. Some corn notes in the flavor, but mostly malt and only passing nod to hops. Crisp finish.

Review from notes verbatim on 10/7/10 A: Light amber, brilliant clarity, no head formation and no lacing. S: Slight petunia with sweet malts, caramel. Not bad, interesting. T: Bread, floral, decently sweet. Fairly indifferent to the flavors here. M: Low carbonation on a medium bodied ale. Wish it was a hint more spritely. D: Overall, decent take on pale ale, but overly sweet for my tastes. Serving type: bottle 03-18-2011

Tap at metlife stadium NYC. Copper pour. Nose has bread, light floral hops and biscuit malts. Taste is a refreshing biscuit malt based body with light toffee In there too. Not too bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cargo150 (420) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Je crois que cette bière est légèrement surévalué. Couleur ambrée avec un col blanc moyen. Nez de malt et caramel. En bouche un gout un peu métalisé de caramel et de malt. Complexe pour une bière commercial mais reste très ordinaire.

Deep copper color and a white head with nice retention. Malty flavor but a little too sweet. Easily drinkable. Solid overall beer for what it is.

ROBC3366 (361) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Clear copper-amber body with bright white head. Rather neutral aroma, biscuit, bread, cereal, a little hop brightness. Taste is mild, malty bread notes, easy drinking. Certainly not great but perhaps one of the best offerings coming from AB-In Bev and a past gateway beer for me.
