3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is a bit metallic , slightly malty and a bit of pleasant hops. The beer is light amber , with a short lasting head. Flavor: starts with light maltyness , then goes bitter and very very dry. end with a note of hop flavor. medium-low palate. Overall: a nice beer, but too dry and not full enough for my taste. Its not malty enough to be called a Premium Bitter.

Bass is a solid if not spectacular British pub ale. The pour is reddish-brown with a modest head and muted carbonation. The body is medium and slightly more malty than bitter, but close to balanced. The finish is short and simple. I drink it from time to time and it pairs well with many foods.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’ve always loved a Black and Tan and when I use to get them for the wife and me we would get the 6 pack of Bass and the 4 pack Guinness draft. There was always those two lonely extra Bass singles I use to enjoy after. Trying it now it’s still a good drinkable beer. I wouldn’t go get it just for it but those two extras are going to always be drank up when I get some Black and Tans.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
12 oz. bottle, brewed in AB´s mega brewery in Baldwinsville, NY. Pours a pretty decent amber, but that is where any similarity to the UK version ends. Thin, watery taste with a bit of a caramel aftertaste. The aroma and palate are the same as you find in all of AB´s products. This makes me wonder if this is even an ale at all. If they are trying to cut costs by using cheap ingredients, then it would make sense that they would not go to the trouble of using a top-fermenting ale yeast strain. Not terrible, but certainly a great disservice to the Bass name. They have now done to Bass what they did to Beck´s. Is Stella Artois next?

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This was my go to British ale before I lived in the UK and discovered what real British ale tasted like. This version more closely resembles fizzy yellow American macro liquids, gold in color, light in bitterness, flavor and body.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Sly Fox (Pinehurst, NC). Orange/amber pour with a bit of tan head. Aroma of fresh bread, vinegar (?). Lots of earthy, bread-y qualities here. Toasted walnuts come to mind for some reason. Overall, easy sipper.
