COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not a unique idea, but one that everyone on the Central Coast understands… Call something “805” and it means local. As a regional craft brewer we have always known that the closer the beer is to where it was brewed, the fresher it is. In fact since 1996 our brewery has been built on fresh, local beers for the Central Coast…. so we created a beer just for our locals in the “805”.

Hope you like it… FW

krumbum (580) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Big straw like aromas. Clear gold ring and patches of head. Thin wet cereal grain taste. Finishes quite dry do how wet the sip is. Nice mellow beer for summer.

Savage_Night (19) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Pours hazy light Orange with an ok white head. Head retention is poor. Aroma of malt, slight hop, spice, peaches and citrus. Flavor is almost resembling a lager with a yeast, citrus, bitterness, slight bread and Orange aftertaste. Good summer drink and substitute for your lager drinking acquaintance.

loubar (137) - Los Gatos, California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
1 pint, 6 oz. bottle fvrom BevMo. Taste is malt forward with small hop bitterness and mild carbonation. Simple but smooth, dry and clean. No corn or rice which places it miles above the mass brewed standards. I enjoyed this for what it is: a refreshing crisp American Blonde Ale. Love the low ABV.

JBPortland (1024) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 20, 2015
12oz bottle pours clear pale gold with a finger of head. Nose and palate are simple and straightforward, soft grassy grain, cracker, corn, light apple and citrus, balanced, light, and finishes dry with medium-low bitterness.

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/17/15] Draught at Firestone Walker in Paso Robles. Clear golden. Aroma of malt, light graininess and a mild hoppy note. Sweetish flavor, malty, grainy, with a fruity note and a bitterish note. Light to medium-bodied.

tightslice (262) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is honey, sweet grass, a little corny funk and maybe a little metal. Maybe because I got this for $3.99 and wasn’t expecting a whole lot...I really enjoyed this. Very light and refreshing. Something like a good Pilsener mixed with a Budweiser (The King of Beers).

VertBaconStrips (2136) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Pretty sure I slayed this at Tony Roma’s by DLand during a 45 minute pint crushing marathon. I know the Kings game was on and I know I had a Black Marlin warming to ensure zero downtime between switching beers. This was a killer review and a beer that must really really impressed me because my tasting notes consisted of the single word "Lame". So.. yea.

bwa5879 (772) - Portage, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Mostly clear peachy orange pour with a small white head, lots of bubbles. Lively carbonation, tingly mouthfeel, decent viscosity, finishes really clean. Light floral aroma, sweet, a little sour lager scent too. Taste of lemon lime, some cantaloupe, circus peanuts, bit of noble metallic hops. Lackluster lighter beer.

riversideAK (5726) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Biscuit and underlying light sweetness hint of bread grain also very soft herbal hop. Golden pour thin head not much lace. Biscuit cracker touch of bread mild bitter hops. Non descript blonde ale.

Ernesto987 (4288) - Arizona, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle at daks house, really kinda bad, surprised from firestone, grainy and malty, unbalanced sweetness making it difficult to drink
