Brewed from the late 70s at Burton. In 2000, after Interbrew bought the Bass brand, production was switched to the Ulster brewery in Northern Ireland. 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.

This is the first English Ale that I really enjoyed on a consistent basis. It has a pronounced flavor that embodies everything I enjoy about ale. Nothing is better that a fresh bottle of Bass. Older bottles can get a skunky taste which is very noticable for Bass. Best fresh and ice cold!

Full-bodied taste, just not my type of body. In terms of my taste, I compare it to a fat chick. Bitter and too Englishy for my taste.

Not bad as pale ales go. Has an original taste and is bitter enough to remind you that you have been drinking it. Above average.

Radek Kliber (7239) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 12, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2008 Can 500 ml , purchased at LCBO
Appearance: Very handsome look of dark amber with large creamy, rich, tick crown on top. 4+
Nose: Refreshing aromatic hops with clean malt feel below. Sweet with light nutty accents.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied but with rich spectrum, feel fuller than it is yet light on palate. Silky, smooth good balance of amber malt with light green woody aromatic hop. Slight alcohol touch sits in corner. Bass pale ale gives impression of refinement.

Ernest (7477) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2005 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread), lightly hoppy (apricot, flowers), with a note of diacetyl, hint of fish. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Watery, plain, devoid of character, but drinkable. 5 2 5 2 10 = 2.4

Widget can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread), lightly hoppy (apricot, flowers), with a light note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. The head doesnt quite behave like your average widget can...I actually thought it looked quite like a normal CO2 head when it came out, and it was larger and lasted longer than the bottled form. The mouthfeel is where the nitro becomes a bit more obvious...very very flimsy. Slightly creamier texture would get an extra point, but loses it on the terribly light body. 5 4 5 2 10 = 2.6

best used for a black and tan, though it is a solid beer on its own.
