@ 50 West / Cincinnati --- Light golden orange color, 1" head that slowly drops to the rim, light swirls of lace. Good looking brew. Light malt moves to the back end of the palate before adding mild hops. As it moves through the finish, a little pepper puts an edge on things, enlivening the experience. Like so many of 50 West’s offerings, simple and satisfying. AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2014

Draft at Fifty West (notes). Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have herbal, catty and earthy notes, a splash of citrus, pale malts with moderate sweetness, grass with light toast. Pretty solid APA. I love what these guys are doing.

Draft: pours a nice orange color with an off white head. Aromas of citrus and fruit. Nice full bodied helps make this pretty drinkable even though it’s pretty bitter. Nice pale ale... goes great with sunshine and warm air. schwemjw (20) - - NOV 17, 2013
A great light easy drinking pale ale. Super juicy with tropical hops. Full of citrus and sweet orange. The malt isn’t initially present but provides a good bread quality alot with a somewhat fuller body. Tmoney99 (15315) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2013
