On a hot day, nothing beats it, period. Great "drinkability" and refreshing. Firestone offers quite a selection of good beers, and 805 is by far my "go to" beer. They also are promoting the hell out of it, so they obviously have faith in this beer as well. Have been to the both breweries (Paso Robles and Buellton), and loved the atmosphere and the food in the restaurants were great.

This beer seems to be hitting the market by storm. I have been seeing it more and more in restaurants and bars. Well I decided to try it. All I can say is wow. I have no idea why it isn't scoring better on here, maybe my review can help that.

First off, its a honey blonde ale, very dark, but clear amber, it just looks freaking delicious.

2nd, it smells amazing, enough said.

3rd, it taste blows my mind. It is very deep, rich flavor as you would expect from an ale, not to sweat, not bitter, but lots of complex flavor. Very refreshing (a word not usually associated with an ale).

4th, it feels wonderful in my mouth. As such my mouth as asked for additional dates with this beer which it shall get.

Overall, try it, and be honest with yourself for what this beer is trying to accomplish. Great job Firestone!
