2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.

3.3 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.

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

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

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.
