A solid beer. Year after year this ale remains consistent. Well balanced, not as hoppy as some its microbrewed cousins, but still very good. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 1, 2001
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2007 Bottle: Pale orange, light fruits and cardboard, light bodied, light bitter and light earth. Bass Ale tastes a lot better when mixed with a Guinness or when not drank at all. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2001
This is a great ale for not being a microbrew. It has a solid taste and demands respect. k2 (146) - USA - AUG 28, 2001
An oldie but a goodie. This is a great beer where ever you get it. HighlanderOne (1328) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2001
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 I used to think that this was the ultimate pale ale, but now that I’ve tasted others, it sort of, um, pales in comparison. Still a good ,solid ale, but watery and weak in comparison.

tastes much better overseas. had a yard of bass at an irish pub in the uk, something to remember ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - AUG 22, 2001
A standard English pale ale. not as hoppy as some American microbrews but still quite nice.
easy to find in the US,
often combined with guiness for a tasty half and half.

This used to be one of the very best products one could get in the States, and the fact that it no longer is says more about the changing times than about the beer itself. Solid and enjoyable, this beer brings back a lot of memories for me, but there are far more interesting, demanding, and rewarding beers out there. Merely above-average.

I love Bbbbbbaaaaasssss Ale. Stands up in the bottle, great (fresh) on tap. Had in Ireland- cask conditioned- and it was AWESOME. Anyone who does not like Bass Ale does not like beer (or ale)! BudMan (17) - Kennesaw, Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2001
Excellent with a meal, not an afterwork beer. I love the taste.
