4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Arrived in a tall, slender mug with a clear, copper-toned body topped off with a finger of white foam maintained by a constant, steady stream of fine carbonation.
Smell: Sweetish, predominately bready nose of German malts. Slight hint of light caramel. Mild notes of spicy, earthy hops.
Taste: Opens with a notably sweet taste of sugar-encrusted, toasted bread crusts. Additional hint of caramel. Very small hint of grain. Clear lager yeastiness. Lightly spicy hop presence with a small measure of imparted bitterness. Bready, sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel overall.
Drinkability: Always a good choice at the 5. A pleasant beer that drinks very (sometimes a bit too) easily and pairs with a wide range of foods.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at 5 Seasons. Thanks to Dennis and his fine attentive staff for the manner in which thedm and I were treated during our visit to this establishment. This beer formed a small sized off-white head with fine-medium bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body was transparent and it contained some lively carbonation with an orange hue. The nose was malty and the flavor was lightly bitter with a lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel was somewhat tingly and this was a medium-full bodied beer with fair lacing.

Draft @ the 5. Poured a clear copper color with a thin beige head. Malty sweet aroma with notes of caramel and a touch of fruit. The flavor pretty much mimicked the aroma. Light bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied.

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep reddish hues, gentle sweetness, hop bouquet. Excellent, extremely drinkable. Sweet with a saazy touch, not much grassy. A dry finish emerges. Just a touch of citrus (orange). Appropriately carbonated. Excellent example of the style. (on tap at brewpub)

Draft at brewpub. Pours light brown with a khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Has some maltiness on the nose. Fairly malty on the tongue but has enough bitterness on the finish to keep things interesting. Very quaffable.

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.
