Beer Review #14: Bass Pale Ale

Bass Pale Ale is relatively well-known around the world. Most Irish pubs will have this on tap or in the bottle. All liquor stores I have been to carry this beer. This beer was brewed in Ireland for a while but now is being made in the UK. Not a knock your socks off beer but not too bad either.
Pour: Amber colored pour with nice white head.
Aroma: A faint smell of toast but not much for hops.
Taste: Flavor is malty not very hoppy like your American Pale Ales. Kind of disappointing.
Overall: So many better pale ales out there, I wouldn’t waste my time with this one. Flavor seems to have changed as this used to be pretty decent. Buy a good American Pale Ale and don’t blow $8 on a sixer of this.

Eastern Iowa residents: This beer is available all over the area, but don’t spend money on this, look to Millstream’s Pale Ale or Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. This is a pretty piss poor pale ale.
