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.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper colour with a small white head. Fruity aroma. Sweet malt taste with fruit and some agreeable bitterness. Good straightforward quaffer. Better than I thought it would be. Why is the bottled version so poor?

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Looks great in the glass, a reddish copper that has a small white head. Hints of butterscotch with a little toffee in the aftertaste. Goes down easy. Pretty nice and I like it a whole lot more than the bottled version.

berkshirejohn (6075) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2007
Cask at The Golden Retriever, Bracknell. Ambered coloured with a thin white head; malty aroma; taste is slightly sour with a citric edge; leading to a dry, slightly bitter aftertaste. Very refined - the essence of an English bitter.

StueyD (1567) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2006
A pale, copper brown coloured beer with a weak white head. A very light, malty nose, sweetish with some caramel notes. The taste is dry, a bit on the weak side to start, then a sweetish malt and fruit flavour comes through. The finish is quite dry. (Cask - The Ordance Arms, Stibbard, nr. Fakenham, Norfolk).
