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.

Copper pour with off white head. Interesting aroma of lemon and caramel. Taste is bland in comparison. Feels like water and tastes like the smell watered down. Not overly impressed.

On-tap. Pours clear copper-amber with a nice white head that quickly fades away. Mild caramel malts and herbal aromas. Moderate malty sweetness, some bready notes, short hoppy bitter finish. Light body, too watery. Easy to drink but pretty basic.

Bork (131) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Smooth and well-balanced. Slightly low on flavors and adjusted for easy drinking with a very mild hop character and bitterness.

Berard (295) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Draft. Pours deep red with no head. Mild carbonation with thin watery mouthfeel. Malt aroma comes through in taste. It's like Budweiser with red food coloring and slightly more alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12/13/2009. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Caramel and light fruit. A bit watery and not as flavorful as the UK version.

commonmac (300) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Tap at Pat O’Brien’s in the Citywalk near Universal Studios. Not a lot to choose from so this was the option. Pint glass. Nearly amber in color...strong copper. Aroma on the malt end of the spectrum. Taste follows suit. Maybe a hint of hops but malt, grain steal the show. It’s really not that bad if you take into consideration it doesn’t really look to impress. There is a little bitter at the end but minimal. I would consider this OK. Just don’t expect greatness.

Bottle pour. Golden brown color with small white head. Sweet malt aroma. Light to medium body. Sweet caramel with a slight pine flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Gold with little head. Aroma and taste are very sweet with floral notes and a weird banana like flavor. On the thin side. Not the best.
