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

Its got a slightly bitter light ale like taste to it, a lot more light than most Firestone beers. But on the plus side it goes with nearly everything and having multiples is easy as opposed to other Firestone offerings. The limitation to local availability is also a plus.

Bif (1958) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a nice head and bit of lacing. Aroma of fresh grain, hint of malt sweetness and bit of light fruit. Taste of mild male sweetness, grain with trace of fruit. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Has a nice fresh feel. Nice beer for the style.

tmoreau (3516) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2016
On tap at the Double Barrel Roadhouse in Las Vegas, dispensed to a shaker showing a clear & bright, golden color, frothy, soft white head foam, and clingy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was soft grain/wheat, with a honey sweetness to the malt. Medium bodied, and lively carbonated, with a modest amount of earthy bitterness for some contrast. Crushable summer faire, fit the party atmosphere,...and heat!

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.

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 (4221) - 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 (4447) - 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 (6219) - 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.

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.
