Had this one in downtown Springfield IL at Andiamo...I was very suprised to see this on tap at what is basically a coffee shop and decided to have one after touring the old state capital.
It's been awhile since I've had one of these, but I remember drinking Bass as a lighter alternative to Guiness before I really started exploring the world of beer.
Expertly poured into a pint glass by the girl behind the counter. Very clear and golden with not much head. A few suds did stick around for the duration.
Not much going on with the smell here, but this was served very cold and downed quickly, so I may have missed some nuances that might have been detected if I sat with the beer as it warmed. The taste is excellent, but sort of bland. A lighty malty, butterscotch sweetness at first. Followed by a tiny bit of bitterness. This one is very well balanced and goes down easily.
The taste is interesting, but unintrusive enough to drink just for fun...for those times when picking out every little subtle flavor is not the main idea. Overall this is just a pretty average beer for drinking....without much thinking.

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.
