Also known as "Draught Bass"

Piepenhenrich (1153) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2017
Hand-pulled in Ferry Boat Inn, Ullapool, Scotland. Pours brown and very creamy, texture remains creamy for a considerable time. Along its malty notes comes a gentle but distinct bitterness.

Lunchtime pints at Simpsons on Cornhill. It's always a bizarre place with overly familiar service, tables and benches made of old Lloyd's of London booths and quite high prices. And the beer is served way too cold for my liking. Anyway, I had two pints of draft Bass to wash down a mixed grill. This is a rare beer to find on draft and the first pint was nice, but the second had an odd flavour to it. Not enough to send it back, but quite metallic. This wasn't the best beer I have had and I much prefer the Bass from cans in the supermarket. The very large glass of port that we had with the stewed cheese at the end of lunch was however excellent. I love the City!

Ktwse (5305) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Pours hazy copper with low white head. Aroma of bread and citrus. Taste is mild nutty and bready sweet with a light bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

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

allmyvinyl (10925) - 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.

BeerNinjaUK (483) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
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.

minutemat (5938) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
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.

3.6
BlackHaddock (7562) - 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.
