Beer Review #22: Firestone 805

02 Feb

Website description: A light, refreshing blonde ale crafted for the California lifestyle. Subtle malt sweetness is balanced by a touch of hops,creating a versatile beer with a clean finish.

ABV: 4.7%

My thoughts: WTF! The first really local beer I try and its this watery Bud wanna be? Son, I am disappoint. There’s no aroma to speak of. It’s a nice golden color and is pretty transparent, which while it looks nice, is sadly indicative of its lack of body. It doesn’t taste all that bad, but that’s because there’s not much to the flavor. To me the flavor is a lot like Budweiser, but its not as outright awful. It’s just not very good. I’ve had other great California beers before (including my all time favorite beer, Sierra Nevada!), so I was disappointed with how this turned out to taste. Alas! I’ll have to look to other breweries for my quality CA fix.

Number of times I’ve had it: 1

Rating: 2/5
