Poured into a pint glass around 40 degrees.
A:Light gold color with really good clarity, The head is one finger thick, creamy white, and has fair retention. Some carbonation bubbles are visible.

N: Mild malty notes, with light toast and biscuit notes. The hops is subtle with some floral, citrus, and touch of pine.

T: Malty notes with light toasted, wheat, and biscuit flavor. The yeast is noticeable and medium hop profile. The is hops lean more towards a citrus and floral note. The malt lends a subtle sweetness to the beer.

M: The beer is slightly carbonated, with a mild/medium presents on the palate. The hops lend some bitterness.

O: I am not sure what to think of this beer is has an okay hop present with some bitterness. I like to have a bit more body in the beer.

805 Blonde Ale has a thick, off-white head, a clear, burnished-gold appearance, some lazy, ascending bubbles, and minimal lacing left behind. Aroma is of of sweet bread crust, a touch of honey, and cracker. Bitterness is low. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and 805 Blonde Ale finishes crisp and easy going. RJT

A golden smooth beer with gentle malt, a touch of graininess and a nice slightly spicy floral finish. Very refreshing and easy to drink but with the quality of a winning selection.
Got a pint at the Lion and Crown in Addison, TX. Found a new favorite. Cheers!
