In 2003 production and distribution was switched to Latrobe for a 12-18 period after which it reverted to the UK, latterly at InBev’s Samlesbury brewery.

On tap @ IAH. Pours a clear amber color with a small offwhite head. Sweet aroma of bready malts, some caramel. Medium body reveals more sweetness, honey, with a slightly metallic finish. Drinkable, standard ale.

Very mild aromas of citrus and malt. Pours a golden orange with a white head that dissipates quickly. Subtle balanced tastes. Not very distinctive but pleasantly drinkable.

Pours very clear, light orange, almost white head. Light malty aroma. Taste is light malt, some spicy fruity hops. Better than I expected, bit still not my favorite pale ale .

My dad’s favorite beer. After learning the history of this historical beer it is too bad it is now being brewed by in-bev losing all authenticity.

mrjez (612) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 10, 2016
Tap in Osaka. Nice copper-amber pour, creamy beige head, lacing. Not much aroma, a little caramel, malt, hopping. Nicer flavour though, approachable mild caramel and toffee malt. Low bitterness, medium feel, easy over a couple of pints. Had countless time over the years and pleased to see it keeps up and does the job even as my palate keeps shifting.

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - NOV 28, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar cobrizo con algunos destellos naranjas a contraluz, muy ligeramente turbia y una mediana actividad de carbonatación. Corona de espuma color marfil, de mediana retención con burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: la malta predomina, notas dulces y de cereal, ligeramente caramelo, algo mineral del agua y algo herbal ligero de los lúpulos. SABOR: similar al aroma, de inicio dulce pero no empalagoso, notas a cereal y caramelo, seguido de algo mineral y la presencia de los lúpulos nobles de carácter herbal. En el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo, ligeramente seco con algunas notas dulces. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, mediana carbonatación. RESUMEN: agradable cerveza de acuerdo al estilo,

Scopey (14511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Bottled at the BA lounge, IAH. This bottle says 5.1% It pours clear amber with a quickly dissipating off - white head. The aroma is sweet, stick, mostly caramel and toffee, toasted brown sugar, candied orange, cherry cola and generic fruitiness. The taste is crisp, restrained bitterness, caramel, toffee, big cola vibe, brown bread, cereal and some dried fruits. Watery mouth - feel and some prickly carbonation. Pretty basic stuff. Drinkable it is, but it is the sort of thing any old dirtbag could brew with a malt extract kit.

I cant believe i havent reviewed this yet, Bass is a good standard pub ale. It is a little light on aroma and taste, with hints of malts and not much else. However it is rather smooth and easy to drink and its not offensive, overall its a pretty decent brew thats worth a try. Originally rated on 11/15/08.
