Bass, being the world's first pale ale set the standard for this type of beer. It's much more subtle than it's American counter parts and while it's been an mainstream beer for a while it still holds its own against the new breeds. The first thing you notice is just how damn smooth and drinkable this beer is. All you can say is the balance and mouthfeel are on point and this is truly a well crafted beer. Carmel malt body with a light vinegar note and a hop presence that is subtlety in the background but enough to know its there. Overall a great session ale, a must try classic.
