Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint.
Appearance: Pours a beautiful reddish amber liquid with a 3-finger head that gradually dissipates to a haze. Leaves nice lacing along the glass. Very transparent with continual carbonation bubbles.
Smell: Earthy caramel and butter on the nose. Also a little floral hop.
Taste: An interesting and pleasant metallic twang on the front of the tongue followed by sweet malt and very flowery hop bite at the end. A nicely mild and pleasant flavor profile.
Mouthfeel: Easy carbonation and a slight slickness. A little bit sharp, but not in a bad way.
Drinkability: Goes down very easy due to low ABV. A common and simple brew that just hits the spot for me tonight when I don't want anything complicated. I know this doesn't get rave reviews, but I like it a lot. For those days when you don't want an assault on your taste buds, this is a good choice. It's very mild, but yet still tasty.

This was a great beer way back when, after being bought by anheuser busch, and replacing hops with two row malts, this is nothing more than a Budweiser with extra malts and a horrible natti ice aftertaste. Shame on this company for buying out and ruining a beer that has been around since artist like Monet and dictators like Napoleon Bonaparte. Just another casualty in the war of the beers. Seems any good beers will be bought out and watered down if they sell out. I will not even do the beer review in terms of mouthfeel, ect , cause to be honest its not worth it, as it fails all tests..Now I only speak of the usa version by anheuser busch, I remember the uk version being delicious!

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.
