3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is light, with floral and woody tones, small berry notes, momentarily breaks even some hint of whiskey.
The taste is dry, with a slightly dull-berry fruit acidity, flash notes lollipops, trees and grassy felt bitterness against the backdrop of thick malt substrate.
Aftertaste suddenly warming, long, good acidity intertwined with bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thirty years ago, when Bass was brewed at Burton on Trent and was imported to the US, I thought it was a fine mild ale. Nowadays, it is a pale spectre of what it was. Thin, watery and with some odd chemically manipulated malty flavors, American Bass stands as yet another prime example of AB Inbev’s corporate, profit driven erosion of another fine brand. Very disappointing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma is faint floral hops, some caramel malt. Taste is sweet and yeasty up front, with a bitter aftertaste. Overall a very drinkable mass-market beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Been enjoying this brew, off and on, through the years; but of late, it’s become maybe a touch more sweet and a bunch hop-less; like there’s something missing from the Bass enjoyed some years back.

Deep golden, nice head. Nose of grains, honey, some grass. Light to medium body. Bittersweet taste, grassy hoppy finish. OK

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Some hops some malts but not much. Nothing off but nada in there either. Kind of watery.
