Bass Ale - The Horror

Hi Jess, your points are well taken, I am sure Bass in the UK was superior to the Bass we were getting here in the US but at least it was still a reasonably good drink and a fine alternative to American lagers. Now it basically tastes like Killian's Red which is a travesty.

I have not tried it on tap for a while either, CW. I am very sad as Bass was my "goto" beer if I was in a place with a less-than-stellar beer selection. They would usually have Bass and it was usually quite good (always good in bottles, usually good on draft as long as it was reasonably fresh).

Bass Ale - The Horror

I picked up a 12-pack of Bass Ale this weekend after a having gone quite a while without buying any for whatever reason and I was astonished as to how bad it tasted. NOTHING like the Bass Ale I remembered. Inspection of the bottle turned up some disturbing statements like "originally brewed in Burton-on-Trent" etc. and close inspection of the carton (on the bottom) revealed it is now brewed in Baldwinsville, NY. What a shame, InterBev is determined to kill this brand in the US I guess - not sure if they tried to "Americanize" the taste or just cutting corners but I won't be buying any more.
