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.

dnicolaescu (1521) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 20, 2015
BOTTLE 355 CL. BB NOV-2015. Brewed in UK, 5,1% BAV. Smells and tastes like a macro-lager - some pale malts, a touch of vague boiled fruit, sweaty hops, dirty bitter and astringent finish. Crap.

This is a beer that one must get used to, your first one will taste, well really bitter, the 2nd one better, and within a few weeks, you will really tell the flavor. Pale Ale’s are ordered as bitters in the United Kingdom. This beer is served best around 50F. I nice aroma although a bit strong. The olden bitter appearance can’t be beat. It’s not a beer/ale you want right after exercising for working out but a great beer just for watching the game. This also one beer if you can find it on tap, it’s often better then the bottle.

Pours amber from 12 oz bottle "product of the USA," thin white head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste dominated by bittering hops, not much else. Average body with high carbonation. Decent but undoubtedly not the real Bass.

Whenever they have this beer at a restaurant, etc. as an alternative "premium" choice versus the domestics like Bud, Coors, etc., it’s a no-brainer to me. I put this in the class with the Heinekens, Corona’s and such, and am happy to have that choice. A good overall beer, without that sour bitter aftertaste. Sweetness from the malts, maybe a slight honey flavor. Pours a nice shiney medium brown-amber color. Medium light carbonation with a decent head. Good with Fish and Chips, especially if used in a Black and Tan!

Amber brown colored. Caramel and generically malty aroma. Taste about the same with a minimal hop buttering presence. Fine, but average.

loubar (156) - Los Gatos, California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 12 oz. bottle. Copper color, thin head with short retention. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Flavor of bread, caramel and vanilla. Slightly sweet with a very mild bitterness. Light to medium body with mild carbonation. Less sweetness and more complexity would be welcome, but, in limited circumstances, it holds its own. An acceptable pale ale.

willisread (1606) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle from Masuyo’s in Asagaya. Poured into an English tulip pint. Brownish amber color with slight off-white head. Little to no noticeable aroma outside of a hint of caramel. Mass-produced grainy nondeScript flavour with hints of caramel. Hops in there somewhere. What happened to the bass I remember of 15 years ago? None of the flavour or aromas I remember.

Brown pour from bottle. Malt and caramel spiced slightly. A roast character is in there too. Not too bad.

kevinator (1730) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Average for the style despite the history. Non-existent aroma. Auburn color. Medium to light palate with higher carbonation than desired. Bland malty flavors that made it an average beer. Slight hops presence. Tasted mass-produced.
