UPDATED: SEP 16, 2017 Cerveja muito boa. Para uma pale ale, é leve e refrescante. Deliciosa. Vale a pena experimentar. aoiioushi (2) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2017 does not count

12oz bottle at home. Clear amber with a medium white head. Mild malt profile, light hops, some bread. Light bodied. Malty finish. I remember this being better back in the day, but maybe it’s a palate thing. LaserDave (21) - - JUL 14, 2017
Available filtered in bottles, cans, and kegs. Versions of Bass brewed in the UK for export at 5%-5.2%, as well as a US-brewed version for the North American market at 5%. Brewed from the late 70s at Burton. In 2000, after Interbrew bought the Bass brand, production was switched to the Ulster brewery in Northern Ireland. 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. As of 2012, the US version was being produced at A-B InBev’s Baldwinsville brewery.

Pours clear amber, at first quite prominent foamy head but after a short while, nothing really left of it. Nose caramelly, sweetish and grainy. Malt caramel? Taste has moe of that, mild and smooth still, fruity, and lots of biscuits there in the second wave. Toasted caramel, bitterness is quite light, some metallic elements coming out in the end. Aftertaste is relatively mildly bitter, some more metal. Overall, well, drinkable - yes, excellent - not really, English - probably so.

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. Aggiebob (1207) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle. Amber color pour with a quickly dissipating off-white head. It has a malty aroma with caramel and floral notes. It is lightly bitter with a watery finish. OnTheTrail (542) - Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2017
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 . Chadhami (152) - - JAN 5, 2017
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. gopherfan99 (1996) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle; pours clear copper with a white head; aroma is weak with caramel, bread, and some faint hop notes; taste is a bit bland with a little caramel and some floral hints; finish is dry with some light bitterness; meh...
