In 2003 production and distribution was switched to Latrobe for a 12-18 period after which it reverted to the UK, latterly at InBevs Samlesbury brewery. As of 2012, the US version was being produced at A-B InBevs Baldwinsville brewery.

I guess you may like this beer if you mainly drink cheep American lagers . . . definately not up my alley. Nice and malty but that was about it. Watery, overcarbonated, and bland.

slightyly sweet aroma, but it ends there, appearance is watery amber, the flavor is water with some beer finish, no palate whatsoever, and highly over carbonated. this should not be called an english pale ale in my mind.

Fairly overrated, too sweet and not very well balanced.

Clean palate, nice color, good finish. Too bad Interbrew was allowed to purchase Bass. I worry that this beer will lose its character

So far Ive only had this on tap. As a practical matter, I must say that although this is far from the worlds most distinctive brew, its quite serviceable; it provides good value in settings that either dont offer better beers, or only offer them at ridiculous prices. So its good to have around.

This was the last beer I was regularly drinking before...well, before I fell in with the lot of you. Revisiting it, I would have thought, nah, its not gonna be good. But it is. Could use a bit more hops, but its English, right? Nice and subtle. The maltiness is really there, from aroma through the middle. Quite good. Is this the best, mass-produced beer in the world?

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2003 Has been part of many a black and tan as well as a good anytime beer. Ubiquitous on draught in these parts. Truly nothing special, just a decent English Pale, but I've bought it before and will again, no doubt.
