Paid $2.00 for a 12oz. frosted mug on tap with lunch
The appearence is a beautiful amber color with a mid-sized white head and retention was good as with a little lacing as well. The aroma was pretty much just average, a little this-and-that stuff like fruits and sweets
The taste is alright, but not to my expectations; however still a pretty good taste mild hops, sweet, a but fruity and that's about it. The mouthfeel is real nice and smooth and the drinakbility is moreless above average, with too much hint of an alcohol taste at 5% abv.
Final Thought: Pleasent, better on tap than poured from the bottle, a fine pale ale in my book.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
