COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Pale Ale is a blend of two well-known English styles, Extra Special Bitter and India Pale Ale. It is golden amber in color, mild in taste, but crisp, with a fruity, hoppy nose. Lionheart is full flavored, but not extremely bitter nor cloyingly sweet.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Bronze color with creamy head and lots of lacing. Aroma is filled with hops, screaming up with a very american hop profile. The flavor isn't too balanced as the hops are a tad too spicy compared to the malt, maybe this one fermented a bit too dry. It isn't bad, but i've had a fair share of APA's and there's lots better.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2005 Rerate A bit better now, a bit more ctrusy hoppiness noted and a fresh floral aroma. Original 2.9 Overall, a very mellow ale. Had a light amber appearance and slighly hoppy aroma. Nothing here to get too excited about. This would make a good session ale. Overall, 5 Seasons is a great establishment - knowledgable staff - the beer is just a little too tame.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 31. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Atlanta Georgia. Dennis, the owner, treated us royally. He kept bringing sample after sample to our table. We were given every courtesy and treated very well. Thanks to their fine staff. This brew poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind good lace and a transparent softly carbonated light orange brown colored body. The aroma was mildly malted and missing the usual Pale Ale hop notes. The mouthfeel was also missing the typical hop bite and was more malty than hoppy. The flavor was nice and mellow for a Pale Ale and I highly reccommend it for non-hop heads. It is one of the better low hopped APA's out there.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Medium light PA coloring. Light ale aroma. Clear, light citrus gel flavor. Hopping initially comes across mildly, but then builds. Very lightly sweet. Light body. Nice balance.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Draft at 5 Seasons. This beer had a small sized tan head with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body was softly carbonated and transparent with an orange hue. The nose was that of light hops and some fruity notes. The flavor was lightly bitter, and a very mild hoppy taste. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a light bodied beer with a fair lacing.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Light gold color with a medium bitterness in the hop bite. Nicely balanced by the perfect combinations of malt. Medium bodied with a silky smooth mouthfeel. Best brewery in Atlanta hands down.

aracauna (3053) - Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2003 Heavy hops on the nose. I'd like a bit more malt to balance out the hops. There are some slight esters in the flavor that I noticed towards the end. Not a bad beer, but a very timid APA.

The description on the menu was that this beer was a cross between an English Pale Ale and an ESB. I thought they did a pretty good job at it: the balance between malt & hop is good. The aroma is very nice.

Best of the beers I had at the 5 Seasons brewpub in Atlanta. Reading the description on the menu "Blending Extra Bitter and IPA" made me believe I was in for a hopfest, but that was not the case. Slight hop presence and a little more complex than the Sisters and Alt beers but nothing to write home about. This brewpub is a nice place to eat, play pool, etc but the beers are lacking. Overall this one was ok.
