Sadly, since Interbrew took over the helm for Bass the beer has become less of a crowd pleaser and much more characteristic of the other mass produced beers the label makes -- can anyone say Coors?
Nevertheless, Bass' benchmark ale - Bass Ale is a traditional pale ale style, which is arguably one of the best that Interbrew produces. However, compared to some of the stellar Pale Ales being released around the globe, this one has quickly fallen from my charts as something worthy of drinking.
Whether from the bottle or on tap, draught still remains the best place to have this brew, it is a consistent beer. It pours clean, clear and always with a deep copper hue. Its has a fairily mellow aroma with an emphasis on the malts rather than its hoppier characterists. From the tap, is pours with a decent sized head, yet from the bottle, its minimal at best and dissipates quickly, but does provide a reasonable amount of lacing on the glass.
If choices can be made, personally Ill stick with offerings from Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada, Bridgeport or the Pike Place Pub.
