Bass Pale Ale ~ Samlesbury (InBev UK)

Appearance: clear orange and copper under an off-white head with lingering bubbles of all size. Wisps of bubbly lace. Swirls average.

Nose: dry biscuit malt. Lemon peel. Maybe some apple skins…maybe not.

Palate: crisp profile. Biscuit then lemon and feathery wisps of caramel. Caramel apple essence in the finish. Tastes a wee smidge more than it smells. Apple crackers. Starts to grow a hard bitter rind finish which nips almost painfully at back of throat. Hint of diacetyl.

Final Thoughts: plainly boring, and according to my beloved British beer critic who has drunk many Bass Pale Ales over the years, a poor pale shadow of its former glory.
