One of the best beers one can buy in your standard bar. brodieman99 (7) - Ellicott City, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2001 does not count
Great beer for any drinker . . . smooth, tasty, and inexpensive jbeer99 (31) - SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2001
So here’s to the the bloke from Carolina who discovered a METHOD much finer than tasting the brew - he’ll pour one or two down his pants til a ’boner’ transpires. Thanks, Method for your scintillating review of this smooth and woody pale ale. Beer Guy99 (251) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2001
Highly overrated beer from one of Britain’s largest brewers. It amazes me how many neophytes cite Bass as ’a great beer.’ For those folks I say, there is much to be learned. This ale offers little in the way of body, flavor, complexity or depth. This is billed as a prime example of true English pale ale but it doesn’t come close to the quality of some other English pale ales from smaller, lesser known breweries...and it’s certainly not in the same league as better American micro pale ales. I’m blown away by bartenders and bar owners who feel they’re doing beer geeks a great service by offering Bass and Guinness on tap. They actually brag about it. These folks need to get out more. Bass is nothing remotely special. No thanks, if this is all they offer at the bar, I’ll have an iced tea. MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 23, 2001
I think that this beer is HIGHLY overrated!! I think it is way too light and has no ’pale ale’ taste to it. I’ll stick with my American pale ales.

Lighter bodied than most pale ales, with mild malt and hop flavors. Not as hoppy as American style pale ale. Pretty good for a megabrew. bhenry76 (101) - Landenberg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2001
A solid and dependable pint. Rarely dissappoints. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2001
I love the pb&j refrence!!! Definitely middle of the road. I wonder what a true pint from the UK would taste like. Aleacolyte (13) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2001
The pb&j of ipa’s. Always a quality drink (unless skunked). ericmoss3799 (73) - Warwick, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 11, 2001
I will drink this beer at a bar that does not serve other ales. Clearly this is not my favorite. It lacks bite and flavor.
