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.

The clear amber color is handsome, but not much foam even when poured vigorously in the chalice. Some prickly carbonation on the tongue, but it dissipates too quickly.

This has a gummy, perfumey taste that is pretty near unique in my experience. Unfortunately it's not a very inspiring beer flavor. Something like cinnamon and cardboard with a spicy finish and bitterish, dishwater finish. Some kind of cough drop candy with a pineapple pork chow mein hint. If this was down to 4% I would be more forgiving.

This is just funny, I didn't like it at first sip and it didn't improve after that. A peculiar release from a great brewery. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Albertson's supermarket in San Diego.
