Yikes. Pretty run of the mill, tastes similar to American adjunct lager with a heftier price tag. If you’re going to spend a couple more bucks , just buck up and get something actually decent.

Luneylane (191) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUN 1, 2017
Draught at the New Inn, Tywardreath; rated here as it is described in The Beerhunters Top 500. Aroma: hay, bread. Appearance: clear amber, absolutely no head. Palate: light-bodied and thin, flat carbonation, bitter finish with pear drops. Taste: medium bitter, insubstantial and low ABV, but very complex and good. Very refreshing.

Grumpelmies (318) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Dark amber coloured. Decent head with lots of lacing. Mild aroma of nuts, malts, toffee and honey. Taste is malty, slighty nutty and a dose of honey. Toffee and Sulphur. Aftertaste shows some hops. Medium to strong carbonation. Creamy. Not outstanding but nice and easy.

A very drinkable and tasty pale ale that I have thoroughly enjoyed. Good flavour and a surprisingly nice mouth feel for a canned beer.

500 can. Really nice beer. Not one of the absolute best but definitely a very nice beer.

Cokemonkey11 (879) - - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours medium walnut amber with bubbles. Scent is nuts, resin, and a bit of honey. Taste is pale ale with nice nutty malt qualities. Honey. Finish is smooth and crisp and with a faint stickiness that resides in your mouth without leaving sugar or any stickiness on lips. Great.

2.3
zacgillbanks (5169) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle from Co-Op, Wirksworth, Derbyshire. Amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a malty, toffee and slight sulphur note followed by caramel on the finish. Ok

2.7
ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Pours clear pale amber with medium tan head. Little aroma, some maltiness comes through. Flavour is all malt. Not greatly interesting.

3.1
Cristobal37 (1142) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 26, 2016
Satisfying English ale. Drying, mild, slightly nutty. Not as bad as the overall rating shows. Really satisfying.

2.6
Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Nice amber color, clear, no head. Mild bitter smell, smooth taste worth clean finish. Not allot of flavor.

How the mighty are fallen! Years ago when I started drinking in pubs a pint of Bass cost you about £1.30 and was very variable, was supposedly hard to keep, but could be lovely. It was still brewed at Burton well into the 90s and even had its own museum. Now it is reduced to an Asda ’loss leader’ for £1 a bottle. There is still some trace of the old taste, but the maltiness is sadly diluted and there’s very little finish. Mind you for a bottled beer bitter in a supermarket it’s no worse, possibly better, than some of the others, and it is definitely value for money.
