Deep amber with a reddish tint; bitter fruit and grainy malt; hop bitterness in the finish; not much to say about this - all the key elements are present and correct; a sound, well-balanced, archetypal bitter. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Last time I tasted Bass was in August 1993 in Kilmalcolm, Renfrewshire. This is my tasting notes take at the time. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a loose foam white head. Slight metallic aroma with thin mouthfeel. Weak pale malt base leading to a poor range of noticeable flavour. Slight sweetness of barley sugar and green apple noted. Hop resin in the aftertaste giving a harsh metallic flavour. Finish has a slight metallic taint with a sweet note of green apple still evident. A poor session beer.

Fruity and floral aroma, taste is quite similar. Easy bitter to drink, nothing special. ken1 (2004) - DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
In restaurant in London. Happy to find a beer I had not tried in a reataurant. A pretty decent beer. Nice golden colour, and a good head. mike_77 (6673) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2011
Red brown colour with thick creamy head. flavour has a little bit of woodiness, malt and the sulphuric edge quite typical to beers from the region. AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
I must have been trying a different beer to everyone else! Fruity, nutty, malty aroma, complex taste. I found it very satisfying even at £3.20 a pint. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2011
Cask. Pale ambery golden colour with a small head. Aroma is mild fruity and floral notes along with some slight maltyness. Flavour is quite similar. Easy to drink, and no flaws.
