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.

Oginme (42) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2014
bottle: Pours a reddish amber color with frothy off-white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal -- mild and pleasant. Taste is slightly sweet initial flavors of light caramel and bready giving way to slight roasty malt and balancing bitterness which is mildly spicy. It has a medium body and dry finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Overall, not real special but not bad.

Headbanger (3276) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle 1/1 (Old Notes)-Pours amber with a small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same with a slight amount of hops on the back end. This light to medium bodied brew is OK just not my cup of tea.

Vighals (1092) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 25, 2014
Lys gylden brun med tykt kremete hvitt skum. Lett sitrus og karamell. Lite smak også, som jeg fryktet ut fra lukten, med en lett sitrus dødme kan jeg strekke meg til. Uten kullsyre

bartlebier (1640) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(backlog in abstinentia) 12oz bottles@Jess, NJ 2012. Some floral hops survive a quick metallic-caramel onslaught. Watery-papery palate - down & over in a few painless gulps. Yet this is a step up from what I remember this drinking as in BE. Not sure if I need to find out the difference in taste to the UK version.

HIGHB4LL (475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger of loose reddish head, amber red color, clear, head does not last. Aroma: caramel, light floral, light orange, very very light roast malt. Palate: watery texture, light carbonation, light bitter finish. Taste: sweet malt start, light bitter finish. Overall, very boring.

An okay beer, this is fairly malty, certainly more than a real pale ale. Nothing special, actually prefer harp when mixing with Guinness.

Solid pale ale. Nice carbonation bite and slightly sweet aftertaste. It’s not something I’ll pursue again, but I could drink more of this.
