I never thought I would find Bass Ale in a pint can, but did today, on the train platform between tracks 18 and 19 of the Long Island Railroad at Penn Station, NYC. It was featured among other canned beers, like Bud, Becks, Coors Light, and I think Heineken too, in a mobile bar cart for $2.50. Optimism was not in the air at the moment of purchase as I thought a great beer like Bass deserved better.
I was proven wrong as my train pulled away from the station and I popped the top to reveal a great flowing mass into my cup. The ale flowed as if I was drawing it off a tap and it had the familiar shake of a skirt element to the head with many little bubbles coming from the bottom.
The first taste was creamy caramel body mixed with the bitter aftertaste that made me want to take the whole pint down in one shot. I enjoyed the beer to its quick ending and regretted not buying another for the train ride home.
I could see the practical element to having it in a can in Penn Station and I would happily buy this again...in a can.

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
