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.

This was a great beer way back when, after being bought by anheuser busch, and replacing hops with two row malts, this is nothing more than a Budweiser with extra malts and a horrible natti ice aftertaste. Shame on this company for buying out and ruining a beer that has been around since artist like Monet and dictators like Napoleon Bonaparte. Just another casualty in the war of the beers. Seems any good beers will be bought out and watered down if they sell out. I will not even do the beer review in terms of mouthfeel, ect , cause to be honest its not worth it, as it fails all tests..Now I only speak of the usa version by anheuser busch, I remember the uk version being delicious!

Bass pours a dark golden color with a very small but lacing head. There is a mellow caramel aroma, with some corn like notes. The taste has some caramel malt flavors, but a lot of adjunct flavors afterwards. Slightly odd flavors, bad aftertaste. Overall its not horrible, and has some nice flavors, but a really bad aftertaste.
