3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at 5 Seasons Brewing Company. Poured a tan small head that mostly diminished, transparent body, visible carbonation, spotty amounts of lacing, and a golden hue. The aroma was bready, malty and sweet. The flavor was malty, sweet and thin tasting. Smooth mouthfeel and light bodied. Very easy to drink but lacks a lot of character and I was left unimpressed overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured gold and clear, with a thick head. Aroma is grainy, malty, and bready. Taste is somewhat similar with a little hops. Not much. Very clean, easy drinker. Not a bad brew. Good for the patrons that don’t enjoy other more aggressive brews.

Gold pour with not much head. Aroma is almost nonexistent. Flavor is tame, but fresh and breadlike. Best mouthfeel I’ve ever had in this style though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden, pale but bright, lots of lace. Fresh grain aroma is sweet and inviting. Clean sweet grain, slight hop kiss for balance. Very nice, solid, sessionable and true to style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Pours a clear deep golden with a one finger white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of Vienna and sweet malt with a hint of floral hops in the finish. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and a crisp finish. Damn good

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Light, clear copper body with a half inch of creamy, white head.
Smell: Comparatively light aroma smelling of pale and pils maltiness with some sweetish hints.
Taste: Blend of pale, pils, and maybe a hint of bready malts as well. Decent amount of sweetness throughout. Spicy hops, though with a restrained bitterness, leaving you with a sweet finish.
Mouthfeel: Just barely medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s decent enough, but there are far better brews to be had here at 5 Seasons.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden appearance, with a small frothy head, that recedes quickly. Very clean pour, and nose, a light bit of floral and biscuity qualities. Slightly sweet on the palate, very bready, with a hint of honey. Well balanced, but not very exciting, but quite drinkable.
