The lightest of FiftyFifty’s ales, Base Camp is a thirst quenching delight. Pale straw to light gold in color, this beer has a mild malt flavor combined with light bitterness and hop flavor. This beer finishes dry and is very light and refreshing on the palate. Base Camp is a "session beer", meaning you can easily toss back a few in one sitting. So go ahead, pull up a chair and camp out for awhile.

The lightest of the ales of my flight of beers at the brewery tap. Pale golden colour, white head, nice lacing. Moderately citrussy in aroma and flavour, light bodied and refreshing as expected, not very exciting, but still with enough hops to make you want to finish the glass.

On tap at the brewhouse as part of a flight of everything they offered! Hazy light yellow with moderate white head. Slight spice.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours gold with white head. Light aromas of citrus and bready. Med body. Flavor is fruity, not really dry, but it’s strongly bitter for me.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAY 10, 2015
On tap @ FiftyFifty. Clear golden pour with white foam. Kind of a husky, grainy nose. Lots of grain, bread, and white grape juice. Meh. Flavor is dang sweet and grainy. Tons of sugar, bread, and fruit juice. Maybe some sweet apple? Why so sweet? Bitter tea leaf finish.

yet another nondeScript golden ale added to the database for the non-craft beer drinking masses. pretty simple across the board. nothing bad but quite boring. not a lot going on...balanced sweetish fruity malt and a touch of hops. 15 ibu, 4.2%."

Draft at brewery. Light honey in the nose with some malt and light pepper. Taste is slightly sweet with a touch of honey and pepper. A drying hop finish. ok I guess.

JohnnyJ (5078) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Draft at Fifty Fifty. Slightly hazy golden pour, with a white head. Bready, light grassy hops, belgian yeast notes, and banana esters. Pretty clean, but not a favorite.

(on draught at FiftyFifty). Pours a clear golden color with white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma has cereal, bread and citrus. Taste is semi-sweet with more cereal and bread notes and some light bitterness. Medium bodied with a creamy body. Crisp. Plenty of flavor here. Decent beer for sure.

[Tap] Golden pour with a healthy amount of white head. Light grass and grain aroma. The taste is of light malts, biscuit, straw and mild grass. Sweet finish that is light and clean. Nice mouthfeel and palate. Lively carbonation. I preferred the Blonde #7 to this, but this was a nice beer in its own right.
