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

This beer pours a light golden color with a fingers worth of an off-white head. The aroma is of light roasted malt and honey. 805 drinks as smooth as it looks and tastes of sweet malt and finishes with a nice mellow honey flavor. The body of the beer is very light and refreshing. This is the embodiment of a "Lawn Mower" beer, easy drinking and low ABV.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

WillemsUrenkel (1320) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2016
16 fl oz can bought in a BevMo in Santa Maria, CA for 1.99 $. Clear dark golden in the glass, small white head. Not a lot on the nose, maybe a little bit like peach. Taste starts with sweet fruity bisuit, less malty, hints of grain in the middle part. Low fruity aftertaste. Average but okay.

Cavie (4195) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Enjoyed at BTBF 2016. Clear orange color. Dry aroma, clean lager but some dusty notes. Grainy flavor. Sweet malt. Easy finish.

kidmartinek (4385) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2016
Rich golden color. Nice white head. Minimal lace. Faint barley aroma. Pleasant bite. Very balanced taste. Not biscuity like most blondes. An easy, laid back drinker.

Braudog (6196) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. Big, frothy pour. Deep gold color. Sticky. Pretty malty overall, this drinks like a festy lager more than anything I can think of. Not my favorite FW outting, but I guess it’s quite cleanly made. But mundane IMHO. (#6165, 4/4/2016)

Very average... Pours yellow, mostly clear, flimsy white head. Some breadiness, hay, but this guy’s too weak and uninspired for me.

vadie (1184) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2016
Très bonne pour une bière léger. Jaune pale avec une robe moyenne blanche. Il y a les céréales, caramel et un peu d’houblon dans l’arôme. En bouche c’est presque crémeux, sauf que c’est très léger. Je dirais alors que c’est doux, mais avec plein du corps pour une bière léger.

wombat23 (381) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Shared 12 oz. can. Pours a clear straw with a white head. Aroma is light malts with a bit of floral notes. Taste is similar - it’s somewhat bland, but not bad - a decent blond ale.

jhamp9 (1535) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Clear gold pour with a white head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma is honey, grass, and grains. Taste is sweet grain, grass, honey, and a hint of citrus. Light body. Easy drinking.
