Bass Pale Ale

Today’s beer is Bass Pale Ale

Sample Bottle Size: 12 fl ounces/355 mL

Alcohol: 5.0%

Cap Twist: Twist-off

Cost: $1.75

Name: Bass is named after founder, William Bass.

Brief History: Bass& Co Brewery was founded in 1777 by William Bass. Bass applied and was granted England‘s first ever register trademark which still exists to this day, the red triangle. The beer is currently being produced under the name Coors Brewers Limited. Beers exported to United States are imported by Anheuser-Busch

Now let’s get to the beer!

Style: English Pale Ale

Appearance: Orange-brown color. An average amount of head for a macro-brew.

Smell/Scent: Not a strong scent. Got a whiff of a citrus combined with a spicy hops. By no means would anyone call the scent overwhelming.

Taste: Somewhat smooth, toasted malt with some toffee and caramel flavors. Quite bitter as well. Got quite an aftertaste towards the bottom of the glass (top of the bottle).

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation, although a bit more carbonated than other English ales. Smooth feel in the mouth.

Drink with (food): Pizza, lamb, salmon, duck, Salads with nut dressings, Mexican foods, nachos, burgers, roasted meats.

Grade: B-

I’d recommend drinking this beer warm; although it’s not bad chilled. I would’ve given it a higher grade if I didn’t get the bitter aftertaste.

Next: Foster’s
