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

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

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 theres very little finish. Mind you for a bottled beer bitter in a supermarket its no worse, possibly better, than some of the others, and it is definitely value for money.

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.

Nice amber color, clear, no head. Mild bitter smell, smooth taste worth clean finish. Not allot of flavor.

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

Satisfying English ale. Drying, mild, slightly nutty. Not as bad as the overall rating shows. Really satisfying.

ianwelby (1213) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden ale with a bubbly white head. Not much aroma. Flavour is standard bitter. Bitter, hoppy and a touch of fruit. Not much else to it, and this bottled version is watery compared to cask but its alright.

Davros IX (19) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
A very drinkable and tasty pale ale that I have thoroughly enjoyed. Good flavour and a surprisingly nice mouth feel for a canned beer.

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.

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2016
A strong smell of malt and hops, light bitter, quite nice. The white head is medium large and foamy with a long duration. The body is dark red. A light bitter malty taste. The body is light to medium strong, creamy and dry with a normal carbonation.
