Much sweeter than I expected. Had a one-inch head that dissapated quickly. Was drinkable, but not great. Fairly one-dimentional. Smell was a bit stale and yeasty, but it tasted better. Could taste a woody, almost oak-like flavor, as well as some fruit and sugar. One that I would have again, but certainly not a favorite.

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.

From what I can remember this beer was a decent beer. The smell was good, and the color was not all that bad. The taste was not that bad as well. I do not remember that much about this beer it has been a while since I have had this beer. But this was a decent beer. If I can find this beer, I would like to try it again.
