    Default Virtual Draught Bass Day

    As today is National Draught Bass Day, we can all have our pints of Virtual Draught Bass. If we use our imagination and memory it will taste virtually as good as it did 40 years ago. Just like it tasted in Burton-on-Trent after our visit to the Burton Union Room (followed by a game of "Ring the Bull" in the Burton Brewery games room!). I am lucky that I can remember more about what happened 40 years ago than I can about last week or yesterday! In the days when the educated palette of Roger Pratt was to be respected before being dulled by time.
    Of course in those days, Draught Bass was OG1044 before the brewery P----- in it! At least with today's restrictions we don't have to "celebrate" the day with any Bass Substitute.

    I was only 8 forty years ago so I'll have to remember the last pint of Bass I had which wasn't great!

    I have no fond memories of Bass so wouldn't have been celebrating anyway. You realise this will get Aqualungs blood boiling .

    I'm just glad this ill advised event has been scuppered by the virus. I'm going to calm myself down now with a bottle of Cowcatcher closely followed by a Quadrant Stout, two beers worth celebrating!

    Surely you would have had Shandy Bass? Tastes better than the neat stuff...

    I think it's one of the best milds going but it's not a core beer. I'm going to top up next week and get Nightwatchman & Jamboree just so I've got a choice. If only they had the Imperial Stout!

    I noticed that one of your Bass Blogging associates also mentioned today as "National Doom Bar Day". I did notice that this was first mentioned on April 1st, so was hoping this had something to do with it! I looked around for a National Red Barrel Day or a Double Diamond Jubilee (which could be for the Stout!).

    To be honest, I would be quite happy to get back towards normal and go to any cask ale pub tomorrow, even if draught Bass was the only thing on offer!

    It wouldn't surprise me if the revisionist running dogs tried to bring back Red Barrel, DD (is K9P), Tankard or even Watney's Starlight,
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan
