3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.3 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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden-copper body. Malty nose of bread crusts and light spice. Nice malty character, medium sweet with moderate bitterness in the finish. Fairly complex in subtle ways and not at all cloying. A nice, subtle Vienna. Not bad for the requisite brewpub amber.

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2005 Amber with thick white head. Aroma of sweet malts, cereal grains, and bready lager yeast. Taste is grainy, with a chewy bready character. Well crafted and balanced lager.

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…

Light brass color. Decent dryness. Very similar to their Munich Helles. So there.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery: Poured golden yellow/amber with a small white head. Light earthy aroma with some fruit. Mild earthy hop flavor with a lightly bitter finish. Very well done.
