High-End European import - English pale ale
Bass is a full-flavored ale that is still brewed according to its original recipe. English malts, aromatic hops and water rich in essential salts and minerals combine to give Bass its slight burnt roast aroma and high-quality, full-bodied flavor.
Bass is brewed with two strains of yeast to produce a complex, nutty, malty taste with subtle hop undertones and a beautiful chestnut hue. Bass is 5.1 percent alcohol by volume (ABV).
Bass is available on draught in 12-ounce bottles, 16-ounce cans and a 19.25-ounce, single-serve bottle.
How to Serve:
Try pairing Bass with smoky poultry dishes and pasta. The beer should always should be served in its special tri-glass to enhance the flavor and presentation. Enjoy Bass alone or as part of an authentic Black & Tan – Bass Pale Ale in its signature tri-glass, layered with a stout beer.
The original English pale ale and England’s first trademark, Bass has been embraced by trail-blazers since 1777. The brand has been painted by Manet, fought over by Napoleon and was served on the Titanic.
Bass is imported and distributed in the United States by Anheuser-Busch, Inc.
