Draught at the brewpup. Don’t remember the specifics, but I found this beer to be a solid example for the style. Slightly sweet caramel malt, slight hops in the finish. Not amazing but enjoyable.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours light amber with a moderate white head. Aroma and flavor are both light malt and hops. It’s a well-made Vienna, but not particularly exciting one way or the other. Probably here for the non-beer-geek, though it’s worth stressing that it is pretty well made and I’d certainly drink it again.

Draft at the Sandy Springs location, poured an expected amber color. Featured a significant presence of bitter hops, if truly a vienna lager, then truly the hoppiest I’ve ever had. Aroma and flavor both featured caramel malts along with some fruity esters (is this really a lager?). Lacking any bready or spicey notes. The single beer at 5S that had me confused and seemed to be more of an amber ale than anything German.

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

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.
