How have I managed to never review Bass? The "tan" description dubbed from its membership in the "Black & Tan" duo is a bit of a misnomer. It's more of a golden brown. I guess Black and Golden Brown doesn't have the same ring though.
Bass Ale is better than many of its British counterparts in smell, taste, and appearance. It's a rich golden beer that goes down quickly and tastefully. I'm of the opinion that there isn't a perfect 5.0 beer out there, as the beers that taste the best tend to have limited drinkability. Bass does a great job of rounding out drinkability and taste. It's powerful, but not too heavy so that you feel like one is enough.
If by some freak of nature you haven't tried Bass, assuming you aren't religiously opposed to it, give it a try. It's a damn fine drink.

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
