By far the best beer I have ever tasted. It is a dream to one day visit Burton, and have a few pints at the brewery. I have no problem paying a little more for this import. Bass Ale is all I drink and I suggest every man, woman and child, over 21 of cource, try one as well. On second thoughts, don’t I’d hate for the supply to run low.. ribrewmaster99 (11) - Warwick, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 27, 2001
Quite simply the best mass produced beer on Earth. Crisp and clean with a wonderful fruity malt finish. Its copper color is perfect. It is a classic example of a true English Pale Ale, and quite simply heaven in a bottle. Slightly better on tap, and at about 50 degrees. captspastic (20) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2002
This is my overall favorite beer of choice. Bass Ale to me has the perfect combination of flavors. It’s pronounced without being overbearing, flavorful without knocking your taste buds over. A beer that is the top of my list always, and my first choice whenever I order. odelay (37) - fuquay-varina, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2002

I can’t believe I didn’t rate this yet. 300 something ratings and i forgot Bass. Well, this is one of the all time great beers of the world, andas long as Coors doesn’t completely meddle with Bass’ recipe and brewing habits, it should remain one of the all time beers. Rating is based on many many pints of pre-coors Bass. One of my comfort foods.

The classic ale, a beer to which all over beers should be compared. One of the best beers in the world. If a bar or pub doesn’t carry it, quickly ask for a coke and leave promptly. A beer with a history behind it, featured in a painting by Manet. Doesn’t have a strong after taste found in too many micro brew. A staple. spinoza (6) - Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2011 does not count
Excellent beer, one of my favorites. A wonderful pale ale! It is also the perfect beer for making a black and tan! jasps66 (1) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2005 does not count

What can I say about Bass Ale, It’s a classic, a legend. If you don’t fall in love with this beer then you don’t appriciate the art of beer.

NOTE: Don’t know about the other version listed as brewed by Latrobe, but you can still get the imported English Ale here and this is it. Note the bottle size was 565ml, over a pint, not the puny 12 oz. longneck produced here.
Huge 565ml bottle poure sparkly bronze/gold with a lovely white, foamy head. Slow fade to a skim but good ring of lacing. Aroma was complex, with initial hits of apricot, grape and strawberries, followed by a balance of lightly-toasted malt and fresh hop herbalness. Taste is slightly sweet, lots of wonderfully bitter hops, then a bit of fruit, perhaps caramel apples. Nice finish with a lingering mix of caramel and bitterness. Carbonation is dead-on for a nice evolving mouthfeel that never disappointed. I kind of wanted to find fault, since this is a fairly large and well-advertised brewer but, honestly, its hard not to like this one. Obviously this is one instance of a macro that’s popular because it’s good. I’d buy a case of this without thinking twice. Just a real good ale.
