Clear golden color with a durable off white head. Nice yeasty bread dough aroma. Nice hoppy flavor as well. 5 Seasons is freakin awesome.

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.

This is a simple clear amber colored brew. Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad.

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.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of slightly sweet bready grain and German yeast. Taste follows, light and easy, a weak Oktoberfest in my opinion.

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.

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.

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