Yikes. Pretty run of the mill, tastes similar to American adjunct lager with a heftier price tag. If youíre going to spend a couple more bucks , just buck up and get something actually decent.

Bottle. Pours medium walnut amber with bubbles. Scent is nuts, resin, and a bit of honey. Taste is pale ale with nice nutty malt qualities. Honey. Finish is smooth and crisp and with a faint stickiness that resides in your mouth without leaving sugar or any stickiness on lips. Great.

Bottle from Co-Op, Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a malty, toffee and slight sulphur note followed by caramel on the finish. Ok

500ml bottle from Asda. Pours clear pale amber with medium tan head. Little aroma, some maltiness comes through. Flavour is all malt. Not greatly interesting.

Satisfying English ale. Drying, mild, slightly nutty. Not as bad as the overall rating shows. Really satisfying.

Claves77 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Nice amber color, clear, no head. Mild bitter smell, smooth taste worth clean finish. Not allot of flavor.

How the mighty are fallen! Years ago when I started drinking in pubs a pint of Bass cost you about £1.30 and was very variable, was supposedly hard to keep, but could be lovely. It was still brewed at Burton well into the 90s and even had its own museum. Now it is reduced to an Asda íloss leaderí for £1 a bottle. There is still some trace of the old taste, but the maltiness is sadly diluted and thereís very little finish. Mind you for a bottled beer bitter in a supermarket itís no worse, possibly better, than some of the others, and it is definitely value for money.

A strong smell of malt and hops, light bitter, quite nice. The white head is medium large and foamy with a long duration. The body is dark red. A light bitter malty taste. The body is light to medium strong, creamy and dry with a normal carbonation.

Bottle. Clear golden ale with a bubbly white head. Not much aroma. Flavour is standard bitter. Bitter, hoppy and a touch of fruit. Not much else to it, and this bottled version is watery compared to cask but itís alright.
