Was served to me in a pint (American pint, not British unfortunatly) glass. Waaay too cold for the style, so I slowly sipped on it until it had a chance to warm up a bit. Has a clear amber color, with no head. Smells of English malt. Taste is pretty good, a sweet and also biscuity flavor with a bit of butter too. There wasnt much hop aroma or flavor, but the bitterness levels were good. Mouthfeel is slightly thin for the style, and the carbonation levels were way too high (compared to drinking this style of beer from the cask). However, I did stir the beer up a bit and this brought carbonation down to much better levels. Pretty drinkable after doing so. My grandpa used to serve Bass gravity dispensed from the cask in the late 1940's and while I suspect the beer was much better back then, it's still worth a drink now in its current state.

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.
