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.

fabioanselmo (185) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - DEC 25, 2013
Aroma levemente frutado com notas de frutas vermelhas. Algo passageiro. Corpo leve com espuma densa. Uma cerveja com tons de vernelho e dourado escuro. Sabor mais acentuado que uma lager tradicional, mais forte, mas nada to diferente. No paladar, leve amargor do lpulo. No geral, uma ALE para ser bebida at room temperature. Refreshing.

Ive got a bit of a soft spot for Bass, it being my regular pint when I first got into drinking proper beer back in my school days. While its not a particularly flavoursome or remarkable drink, I still quite enjoyed this. Pours amber with a white head. Flavours of biscuit and a touch of honey. Refreshing and easy to knock back.

BeerViking (4563) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Cask at the Express Tavern, Id forgotten how good this is when well kept! Malty, lightly sulphurous nose, dry yet juicy body, crisp hoppiness, so refreshing...

shoestring (384) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Waited a while to try this one. Caramel notes, malt and nuts. Nice one. Worth the wait? well yes, but did expect something a bit more special, but I did like it. Love to try draft.

ralphdot (1086) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2013
4.4% pale amber with a good head (but not as good as it used to be), not much aroma (not like the smelly sock smell of the old Bass), but not a bad bitter taste. Not as good as the old stuff but better than the 3.8% smooth version.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 Cask @ The Jolly Sailor, Macclesfield. A deeper golden ale with a thick creamy head. Has malty base but not too overbearing in this respect. Not much flavour.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Tasted 24/4/2013 chilled draught "Bridge Bar & Eating House", Heathrow International Airport, UK. Poured as a glass full of bubbles that eventually formed a mid-dark amber colour with a one-finger off-white foamy head that laced well. Aroma of sourish yeast. Tasted sweet followed by a very slight bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth, soft, light with a slight bitter finish. OK/ordinary.
