I had this draught in Victoria, BC, and maybe it was that specific beer, but I was highly unimpressed. At times unpleasently bitter, but still a good, sweet hop taste to keep you hanging. Very much a thirst quenching, keep it cold beer.

0.33 l bottle @ Finn McCool, Tokyo. Imported by Asahi. No idea about the appearance because it was served without a glass, just the bottle. Taste was mineral and malts. Not really any hops. Interesting but how close this to the original?

De Bass Brewers(UK) propiedad de AB in Bev(BEL-BRA) esta cerveza “Bass Pale Ale”, su estilo es el tradicional English Pale Ale que a diferencia de el American Pale Ale demanda un equilibrio en amargor y maltosidad, con lúpulos del viejo mundo que proporcionan aromas en su mayoría herbales y flórales, el perfil americano resalta el lúpulo sobre cualquier otro elemento y los lúpulos empleados son americanos y los denominados del nuevo mundo que dan aromas y sabores cítricos, frutales, pináceos y resinosos, tambien es muy común el Dry Hopping, el estilo inglés es amargo pero sin llegar a la astringencia, con una base muy rica a pan y granos, un estilo que anteriormente no era muy de mi agradó por su sutileza y limitación en el amargor. En apariencia esta bebida tiene una espuma delgada aunque de mediana retención y perlas pequeñas de aspecto cristalino, su color es un dorado intenso y es al parecer filtrada por la transparencia que presenta, cuerpo ligeramente mediano que llega a dejar marca en el vaso. Su aroma es básica, algo baja para un estilo que ya debe imprimir notoriedad en el lúpulo,se llega a distinguir una nota a lavanda, dulzor de cereal, olor a bizcocho, muy estandarizada pero con poco carácter. El sabor es a malta de base, amargor ligero muy acorde con el sabor del grano, dulzor de malta, bizcocho, carácter floral, poca consistencia en el paladar y de sabor algo pasajero, retrogusto semi seco y pan de nuevo al final, muy bien para paladares recién iniciados en el craftbeer y para el calor, nada compleja, tomable, una versión algo disminuida de este estilo de tradición inglesa.

Vignale (3213) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2016
Flaska hos Petrus. Söt doft av skumtomtar. Söt smak av honung, sött bröd, lätt beska. Söt och blek pale ale som lämnar en del att önska.

ffbot (329) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Pour is light, lager looking. thin soapy head. Smell is funky and skunky with odd earthy and roasty notes. Taste is pretty darn similar. It does leave a long bitterness ans sweetness after

Draft. At Holy Grail, Epping, NH. Clear gold color thin lasting head in a shaker pint. Aroma is light bready malt, dead old hops.

The flavor is an ESB in its simplest form. Grain base with weak bready malts. The hops are here but seem dead. However in nearly and English style beer the hops are weak. The texture is thin with a watery body. I seem to remember this being better when I was living overseas. Of course my palate has come a long way since that time frame. Not awful.

I had it on tap. It pours a pale amber color with some white head and lacing. The aroma is faint caramel and bready. The taste is the same with a very faint hint of bitterness. It was a bit too sweet. It was light on carbonation and a little thin. This is an average and inoffensive beer.

BiddleBrau (1130) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Tap sample. looks OK but lacking character. Another stripped down classic. Remember what Ford did to Jaguar? Don’t put up with this, know what you’re drinking and boycot .
