A- 500ml can poured into a pint glass. An extremely clear copper looking color in the glass, 1 finger of head that quickly subsides, virtually no lacing. Tons of carbonation bubbles clinging to the walls of the glass.
S- Fairly light scent. A bit of malt, maybe some floral hop.
T- Better than the smell. Caramel malt, nuttiness, mild hops, and a mineral taste as well.
M- Thin body, medium carbonation, finishes dry.
D- This is definitely better on tap from what I can remember. I think it also makes a decent black and tan. Nothing off putting here, but not something I go out of my way to have.
Serving type: can

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.
Serving type: bottle
