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.

Bready, toasty biscuit-like aroma. Low on the esters. Slight evidence of caramel on the nose. Aroma not intense in any way. Hop aroma is slight and earthy. Color is a gold to pale Amber. Total clarity, decent head that dissipates rather quickly. Almost no caramel flavor that is emblematic of this style and on the palate there is balance toward the hops more than the malt. Crisp, spritzy finish that was not all that impressive, but it is drinkable. Overall I feel like it lacks character and is a little boring, but not terrible.

Kind of an odd tasting beer. Caramel notes with a floral hop body. Mild bitterness to finish. Tastes like an English pale ale.

Im rating this here on the basis that the commercial deScription on Ratebeer currently says that this is the entry for Bass Pale Ale brewed at Burton in the 70s.

1977 Bicentenary version shared by Matteo at Pauls 10K. Thanks! Dark orange, slight haze, very lightly sparkling, small bubbly white head. Aroma is really sweet with sugar syrup and stewed orange. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation, a bit watery. Taste is watery demerara, dark bread, kvass, touch of blackcurrant jam. Interesting to try. Has held up well and the oxidation has turned it mega-sweet. With some aged beers a sample is all you can do, but I think I could have done a full bottle of this to myself.

tomer (3254) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 30, 2015
Draught, small bubbly head, clear light copper to red color, aroma of bread and fruit with some banana and a hint of spice. Bread and caramel flavor, sweetish with a light bitterness. Drinkable but quite boring and mediocre.
