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.

HIGHB4LL (269) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger of loose reddish head, amber red color, clear, head does not last. Aroma: caramel, light floral, light orange, very very light roast malt. Palate: watery texture, light carbonation, light bitter finish. Taste: sweet malt start, light bitter finish. Overall, very boring.

Bottle. Light orange with a foamy peachy white head. Malty, light toffee, light alcohol, and grassy bitterness. Flavor is balanced between light sweetness and grassy bitterness. Lighter watery body.

An okay beer, this is fairly malty, certainly more than a real pale ale. Nothing special, actually prefer harp when mixing with Guinness.

Solid pale ale. Nice carbonation bite and slightly sweet aftertaste. It’s not something I’ll pursue again, but I could drink more of this.

Westkyoto77 (439) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2014
Draught. Some people rave about this, drink nothing else, but I'm not so enamoured. Smelly, salty aromas of wet leaves and light caramel. Nutty brown look. Lightish body, sedate carbonation. Uneven flavours of buttery malt, caramel, and damp fruit. A kind of downer.

berkshirejohn (4196) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Brewed by William Bass & Cos, Baldwinsville, NY. Amber with a thick cream head; biscuity malt aroma; biscuity malt taste with some soft caramel; and a sweet biscuity aftertaste, with some very light hops. I suspect William is spinning in his grave back in Burton.

Light amber and little head. Mild, balanced and easy to drink... It went down smoothly and will have again definitely

Light brown, head coming over the top. Looks over carbonated with lots of smaller bubbles sticking to the edge of the glass.malty sweetness but not much else going on. Bleh

On tap at bar. Golden in color when it got to be it had little head left. Aroma was a weak malt. Taste was malty gaining in hops as the thin watery brew slides down. Good for pitchers and pizza but little else. I seem to remember this was better back in the day. Maybe because the US brew has not had a home since 2000.
