3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light copper with thin head. Slight sweet aroma. Taste is biscuity malt and thin hop bite that fades quickly. Nothing fancy, just a simple pale ale. Or bitter, I guess, as theyíd call it on the other side of the pond. Does provide a cool reminder of just how different the common west coast, hoppy beers are to their forebears.

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.

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.

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!
