Been a while since I had a Bass Ale, and since it's free I figure there's no better time.
I like how it looks -- a somewhat dull gold color, with a nice cap that has pretty decent retention.
Smell is hard to pick up, but I was in a bar and my allergies are kind of killing me at this point. What I can say is that it didn't smell bad by any measure.
Flavor was very intriguing. I had Bass for the first time last summer, and I don't recall this at all. I'm picking up flavors of pale malt, slightly biscuity, an undertone of hops, and maybe a bit of sour?
Either way it's slightly confusing, but all the flavors are quite muted. Nothing really asserts itself, which makes this even stranger.
Serving type: on-tap

Ah, Bass pale ale. Have had it before but never reviewed it. I review this as I'm drinking it. Here goes:
A: One of the best things about the beer. Pours a clear red with a nice, robust head. Can easily see the other side of the glass. The head quickly dissipates, however, but it leaves a lot of lacing (which is surprising for a mass-produced beer).
S: OK, not good or bad but decent nonetheless. Presence of amber malt, minimal hops and English baker's yeast. Like a watered-down English pale ale. Still OK, though.
T: Not bad for what it is. Lightly-kilned amber malts impart a light earthy flavor. There are some hops but they're mild and don't really coat the palate. What's interesting it that you can detect the presence of English baker's yeast, which impart a very bready character on the beer.
M: OK. Bready character coats the palate well but the beer is somewhat light-bodied. Lots of carbonation, though, which is good.
O: A good (but very light and mild) English pale ale. Mild smell, flavors and mouthfeel but a very bready character.
