Contract brewed by Marston for Interbrew UK.
Also known as "Draught Bass"
Brewed to 4.4% abv, Draught Bass is still brewed to an original recipe using only the finest ingredients and the experience of generations. It is brewed with two strains of yeast to produce a complex nutty, malty taste with subtle hop undertones, which has widespread appeal to repertoire drinkers.

Jug straight out of the cask @ Dyffryn Arms, Pontfaen, Wales. Mental. Rather light and thin taste of course, not a lot going on besides a mild sweetness. But worth it to experience in a timewarp place like this.

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2015
Two hand pulled cask pints in The Golden Lion, Boston, Lincolnshire on 6th June 2015. Really surprised to see I have never written about this beer before. Burton-on-Trent Classic. Tawny brown with a full head on both pints. Lovely blend of malt and hops mashed with water that does not have to be ’Burtonised’ . Light caramel biscuit aroma and taste, but more complex than that. Just a good beer.

teorn88 (5144) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Cask at O’Neills, Dublin. It pours a light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of toffee and citrus peel. Taste has notes of grains, toffee, biscuit, some milder tropical fruit hops and resin notes. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, decent

Grumbo (968) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Served straight from the cask at the excellent Star Inn, Bath. Deep amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of biscuit malts, caramel, hint of nut. Light sweetness and bitterness. Texture a little thin. Low level of carbonation. Decent enough beer.

Towey1989 (1181) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Cask at The Fountain, Leek. Clear amber colour with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt, caramel and a little biscuit and yeast. Taste of caramel, biscuit and yeast, with a tones of spiciness. Smooth texture but light bodied. A malty finish. Typical, enjoyable bitter but nothing exciting.

fullers (269) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Cask at The Angel, Beverley, N. Humberside. Made a point of seeking out this old friend after the beer was denigrated by a publican at a CAMRA House, during my 2008 visit. Pours amber, clear with full white head. Slight malt aroma. Natural carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Notes of caramel and biscuit. A Burton -on-Trent beer.

Nice white head. Appearance is the best with this ale. Well balanced in taste and aroma but nothing is going on. Juat some malt and hops. However drinkable.
