Review – Firestone 805 Blonde Ale

Thanks to the folks up in Paso Robles at Firestone Walker, I got not only a stylin’ hat but the new(ish) to L.A. 805 Blonde ale to review.

Pours a medium yellow with lots of bubbles. Waves of grain taste with this one. From wheat to toast. On top of that sits a honey sweetness. A bit dry at the end to me. For a light beer it has many layers to it. And it has just enough scrubbing bubbles to clean up in the end. This could easily be a great March Madness beer.
