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.

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2008
A golden ale with a thin white head. A light grainy malt aroma. In mouth, a crisp grainy malt, rich, light hops, good bodied and refreshing. On tap at brewpub, August 2007.

marcus (6772) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours golden with a decent off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a rather thin pale malt flavor that also has a floral feeling to it, and a soft dry 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%."

JohnnyJ (4546) - 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.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Sample at the Pub the day before burning man. Pours gold with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and light with a bit of yeast. Taste is sweet and light and overall decently nice.

DYCSoccer17 (3354) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 25, 2007
4 ounce sample at the brewpub. Grassy, lightly floral hop aromas present with some nice biscuity maltiness. A light spiciness is also in there, too. Pretty good. Transparent golden-yellowish body with a small white head. Lightly spicy, peppery, crisp and hoppy to start. Middle has a nice creamy, grainy, and biscuit malty flavors. Nice, crisp, spicy noble hop flavors to finish. Well-crafted.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Draft @ FiftyFifty. Pours a clear, bright golden color; thin white head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Nice aroma of Belgian sugars, cotton candy, and soft honey; generous, estery nose. Medium mouthfeel: following the aroma, lots of Belgian sugars and cotton candy esters upfront; starts to wear a bit on the palate after a while, with an emergent, mildly astringent bitterness. Lengthy finish: dry hop bitterness and a touch of esters.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2011
[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.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Gold color without much head. Light aroma of clean, sweet malt. Light maltiness with a subtle hop balance. More hop flavor than I expected actually, but not too bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Clean and refreshing, but not a whole lot going on.
