COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We at FiftyFifty believe that beer is good. Especially this beer. Manifesto is one of FiftyFifty’s flagship beers. This beer is a delight for those who take pleasure in craft beers and are looking for something that they can enjoy a few pints of. Manifesto has a restrained malt backbone of flavor with mild biscuit and caramel notes, and the hop character is light to moderate with mild earthiness evolving to a slightly more moderate citrus/piney finish. This is a beer of principle.

Homer321 (1809) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Draft at brewery. Hazy copper color, white head. Very sugary and toffee in the nose. Flavor is caramel with even some burnt toast flavors. A touch of butter or some yeasty off flavor, detracting from the hops. Not their best offering I had of the day by any means.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a golden amber color with a huge fluffy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was thin peppery and vague fruity hops. The flavor was thin and bitter with pepper, vague fruity hops and tasted watery. Medium length finish. Light body. Disappointing.

NikkTwist (1538) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange amber pour with a soft foamy top. Earthy floral hops with a caramel backbone. Tangelos. Vanilla bourbon. Dandelions. Some light bready notes in there too. Body feels too sugary. Bitter finish. Not really enjoying it.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Copper colored pour with a white head. Nose is nicely floral, some citrus zest bite, and toasted bread. Caramel malt, pine, and a surprisingly fruity, estery character, too. The flavor is very sweet. Brown sugar and caramel dominate. Lots of grass and straw. Pine and a harsh bitterness on the finish. Light citrus and some floral hops.

drsordr (1006) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Draft dark golden. Nose tropical fruit hop, but subdued. Mild grapefruit bite, strong mid palate bitter. Not much finish.

BeerBoxer (232) - Sacramento, USA - JAN 23, 2012
pours a copper color with a large off white head. Flavor is a bread malty flavor that finishes with a little herb.

JohnnyJ (4267) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Draft at Fifty Fifty. Clear golden amber, with white head. Caramel malt, grains, light citrusy hops. Pretty mild on the bitterness, more malt centered. It’s ok.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2012
(on draught at FiftyFifty). Pours a hazy copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is bread, resin, pine and caramel malts. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Dry, bitter finish. Seems off-balanced to me.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A fairly mellow beer. Some biscuty flavors. A little malt backbone. A nice caramel color with little to no head (could have been the spectacularly shitty service we had delaying the beer reaching the table). Not much in the way of aroma.

HighWine (950) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Copper color in the glass with a thick white head and excellent lacing. Caramel nose and taste. Hops help balance but malt sweetness stays with me.
