2.78/5  rDev -17%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: The beer had a clear reddish tint to it, with a light white fizzy head to it and dissipated quickly.

S: Nothing groundbreaking here, maybe a slight malt aroma to it. There was not much to the nose at all.

T: Now this is a beer that I have not had in a long time, I would easily say 4-5 years if not more and I remember the taste being a lot stronger, more robust. I guess that was probably before I really started to drink anything other than Budweiser. The taste was decent, although I found it a little watered down, but it had a nice light hoppy flavor to it and the malt kicks in at the end. It seemed to have a little bitter finish to it.

M/D: Overall, the beer left me wanting a little more from it. I was not overly impressed like I had been when I first tried Bass, but it was smooth and fairly pleasant to drink. This beer would not be my choice when at an establishment with a better selection, but it is a beer that I am sure that I will find myself ordering again.

2.86/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

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.

Serving type: on-tap
