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.

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.
