Poured a clear amber with a thin white head that was gone in less than 30 seconds. The smell was entirely bubblegum, no floral notes at all. Taste was again bubblegum, with some caramel and a lot of apple juice. Hop character and bitterness were minimal to nonexistent. A lower hop flavor than an EPA should have for sure. The mouthfeel was moderately carbonated, but felt thin. Overall a mediocre English Pale Ale, not able to compete with the truly good examples of the style.

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.
