3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 25. 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 small head of fine to medium sized off white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated orange brown colored body and a fair lace. It had a Munichner malt aroma and a smooth flat mouthfeel. The flavor was a nice medium malt hop one.

5 Seasons brewpub in Atlanta - This brewpub didn't impress me too much. Yellow/orangish appearance. Flavor is slightly malty and smooth but seriously one dimensional. It served its purpose as a decent beer to have while playing pool.

Little to no hop aroma. Subtle malt flavor throughout w/ a dry finish. Not at all what I expected.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2005 Rerate Much more nuttiness, caramel and back end citrusy hoppiness - much improved Original 2.8 This just did not do a whole lot for me - not a whole lot of character to it. No apparent aroma, decent dark orange appearance. Slight hoppy flavor - but was very muted compared to the Sledgehammer I had prior to this.

A nice malty dark lager. This is really a good example of the style.

These seven sisters need a life and so does this beer. It just sits there and waits for life to pass it by.

A little watery like a lot of the 5 Seasons beers, but definite malt to the flavor. Not a bad beer but there’s not enough happening here to make it truly good.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Yet another lager. This brewery does it about as well as most, but what can you say? Weak aroma and flavor. Very smooth mouthfeel and finish with little to no aftertaste. Uninteresting.
