Bass Ale - The Horror

DocHolliday | Mar 5, 201203:30 PM     72

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.
