Bass Ale, the classic english pale ale pours a nice clear copper color with a white head that leaves a thin layer of bubbles with some lace. The smell is subdued but I do get lots of buttery diacetyl along with some toasted malt and faint earthy hops. The taste of this can be attributed to the famous brewing water, slightly salty very mineraly and even a bit metallic along with a fair amount of butterscotch, toasted and caramel malts and some earthy, very British, hop flavor and associated bitterness. The mouthfeel is decent nothing overly exciting. I've got a special place in my heart for this beer. In college the only package store within walking distance of campus had a very poor beer selection with a lot of cheep macro lagers to appeal to the general college community. So I found myself drinking a lot of Bass and Sam Adams. This may not be the best pale ale ever made, but it is a pretty good one.
