Had this at the Miner's arms in Eyan, England - said to be the home of the black plague. Atmosphere alone made this beer better, no denying that. The golden & creamy looking brew had a nice cascading head as it was pumped from the cask. Perfect temperature. This brew is a whole different animal over here. Starts off with a mild apple type flavor..then onto a full, creamy body that coats the mouth with subtle malt and a tasty butterscotch diacetyl flavor. The mouthfeel is perfect -like a cloud in the mouth, and I could no doubt doubt drink this all night..especially in a tiny village with some locals by the fire in a 17th century pub....what a treat.

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.
