A fun beer for the whole family. Smooth, some flavorful malts. Not too hopy, but it is English, mind you.

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?

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle poured in a tulip glass.
A: Nice clear amber color with a thin beige head which remains for a good time but leave only few lacings around
S: Caramel malts. Sweet. Nutty and woody too. Hoppy end
T: Follows the nose: Caramel malts are very evident. Dry. Light bitterness
M: Light body and reasonable carbonation to an English Ale. A bit molasses
D: Very drinkable. Should be a little bit more bitter to be perfect :)
