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

A: nothing to complain
S: bready, light
T: sweet, bready, little bit of bitterness on the end. Kinda disappointing
M: super fizzy, didn't care for it

Overall, tasted more like a lager than an ale. Seemed to be very carbonated, which wasn't something I liked on it. Probably won't purchase again.

Edit: had another one of these, disliked even more. It's just not a good beer.

The color when poured into a pint glass what a light yellow with hardly any foam and not lace. The smell was of a weak lack luster aroma of weak hops and that was it. The taste was of really weak everything in a beer. I should have rated it a 1 all across. Not a good blonde ale. What a disappointment from a very good brewery. One of the worst ales I've tasted from Firestone/Walker.
