FW 805

They got me with the labeling and the fact that it's FW because this beer is crap. 

A- fizzy, light yellow. No head or lacing 3

S- some floral notes, grainy, a little yeast and some dirty bathwater 2

T- on again with the dirty soap water taste mixed with some grain and light floral hops, some metallic notes, Not good 2

M- good mouthfeel. Good carbonation, lighter body 3.5

O- "why did they release this?" is all I kept thinking. I love FW, but this is a crappy beer no matter what. I feel bad that this is the beer they gave to the 805 proclaiming "local only" on the bottle and 6-pack. Do something to make up for this abomination you've released to the 805 FW! 2

Bottle (2012)

Clear golden with a small off-white head that leaves the glass clean on the way down.

The aroma is of simple grain and some dishrag, unfortunately. Simple, yet not particularly pleasant.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with simple grain, low bitterness, and a bit of earthy yeast character.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Not that good, but completely expected for the given style.

Picked up a 6 pack while in Paso Robles for the FW invitational. Pours a yellow beer, white head, nothing exceptional going on. Aroma was cereal grain and not much else, barely present hop aroma going on.

Clean taste, mild mouthfeel, grain presence. Easy to drink, slightly bitter aftertaste, but nothing that should scare any seasoned beeradvocate. A decent beer, worth having around for other's to drink. You've had lots of iterations of this beer, this is the local brewery easy go to drink for the non beer drinker. It is what it is. You know what kind of beer I'm describing. Its an all barley version of BMC basically. Slightly better, a little more ooomph, but nothing special.
