3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light lager nose--sweet and of toasted malt. Copper-amber color, low tight head. Sweet honey malt notes upfront, peaty notes--almost smokey. Crisp texture. Thin, refreshing, and with a good balance.

not my favorite beer, but also not my fave style either. virtually no hops to speak of, with some carmel and malt and some earthy flavors. blah, take it or leave it, just very basic for 5 seasons IMO

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is 5 Seasons’ signature beer, and for good reason: it’s a smooth, very drinkable beer. The flavor is not all that impressive, but this makes it a good choice for people who aren’t into strong, hoppy beers. It is also a good beer to start with if you plan on knocking back a few.
When I am at 5 Seasons and someone is not sure which one to try, I often recommend this one since it has a good general beer flavor but is not overpowering. Seven Sisters is a good "party" beer for when you are drinking with friends or watching a ball game.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap at the brewpub and shared with my wife, who was enthusiastic about it. Light aroma with just a touch of malt & hops. Clear amber color, average head that diminshed quickly. Very mild and balanced bitterness, light bodied, dry finish. Very drinkable at the front of the glass but seemed a bit watery toward the end of the glass as the beer warmed and carbonation faded. Quaff these early and enjoy, save the heftier brews for slower savoring.

Had this one on tap at the 5 for Sara’s BDay. Amber in color. A very nice Märzen style. Very balanced. Slight bitter finish.

Pint at brewery - Aroma of toasty lager malts with a touch of hops. Pours copper with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is crisp and clean. An easy drinking brew.

Nice aroma but flavorless. I didn’t like this beer that much although my sister Millie enjoyed a lot.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the pub. Amber pour, whitish head. Nice mild caramelish aroma, maybe some spiciness. Flavor is more of the same, but the toasty malts assert themselves more with an ever so slight hop presence. Hop bitterness comes through in the end....thin bodied and lightly carbonated. Not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear sparkling amber, creamy white head. Nose of toasted caramel and toffee malt, touches of bread throughout. Nice balance with toasty flavors of more caramel and toffee, and a light bitterness keeping the sweet malt in check. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, clean toasted malt finish. A good session brew…

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at 5 seasons. Pours a light to medium amber, clear with a thin white lasting head. Aroma is light, but sweet malt and light herbal and spicy euro hops. Flavor is smooth with munich and vienna toasted malts, light caramel, hops and slightly nutty. Good crisp clean and smooth finish, although the body seems a bit too light.
