Also known as "Draught Bass"

Well kept Draught Bass can be found in most areas of the UK - you just have to find the right pubs. Along with Morlands Speckled hen its the standard by which I judge other bitters these days. Its a genuine traditional UK bitter made in Burton with no frills attached.

allmyvinyl (10396) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2016
Cask at the Cask & Barrel, Broughton St. Pours clear amber with a creamy white head. Paler than I thought it would be. Aromas of floral hops, light lemon and caramel. Taste has a mineral bite, sweet oat biscuits. Tangy bitter lemon finish. Nice.

Good English pint, appeals to both Northern and Southern tastes, good heart, good head, solid as an English oak, belongs in proper non chain pubs, tasty beer with great body. Good with crisps, nuts, sandwiches. Pinta Bass please landlord.

Pint at bar in a hotel. Sounds good already! Poured mid brown and cloudy. Aroma vaguely sweet and malty. Taste bland and watery. Nothing to get excited about.

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 (7092) - 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 (7647) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 17, 2015
Cask at ONeills, 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

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.

Cask at the Brewery Tap, Burton. Never tried BASS so gave it a go. Deep gold little head, bit tasteless really, malt light caramel, yeasty. Plain.
