Reviewing the US "version" of this beer. Not going to waste much on this. Any reference to Bass or the red triangle need to be removed. This is NOT the Bass you remember or like. It's just another generic American beer. Don't bother.

Bass Pale Ale - I somehow always get lucky when on travel for work and try something that always impresses me. This time it was a Bass Pale Ale. By far, the smoothest pale ale I have had - it tasted more like a dark lager than a pale ale - surprising and refreshing to me. I wasn't overly impressed with the smell, and it had a fast-disappearing head with no lacing, but the taste was exceptional. I would definitely reach for this guy if it shows up in my local liquor joint.

My grandad used to drink this and said that it was "outstanding", to be honest the modern uk version is nothing to write home about, its a generic ale and offers nothing. On the plus side the label on the bottle is still cool, at least AB Inbev have stuck with that if nothing else.
