5 Seasons Weepinbell Wit
Taps hazy amber-golden with a thick eggshell head. Aroma offers wheaty and citrus notes with coriander and hoppy underpinnings. Flavor delivers wheaty, citrus, coriander, and subtle yeast, hoppy and malt character. Firm body has fizz to spare. A great refreshment after hunting Pokemon - or a self-reward for kicking butt in the gym.

5 Seasons Hoptomic Bomb Double IPA
Dark orange color with a white head. Lots of citrus and caramel in the nose. This one is more on the malty end with some grapefruit and lemons. It is certainly bitter ad well. Overall this is a good IPA.

5 Seasons Hopgasm
{From May 2011 notes & April 2016 pint}. Made with 5 hops including Simcoe and Amarillo. A clear dark amber with a creamy tan head; head has good retention. Aroma- very hoppy with citrus, floral and pine notes. T - hidden in the aroma, this IPA has a strong malt base lending a richer and less bitter flavor. Hops still dominate, especially in the nice long-lasting finish. M - Smooth; (too?) light carbonation O - despite ample malt, still recommended for hopheads.

5 Seasons Hop to Conclusion
Pint served at the brewpub (from Oct. 2011 notes). . Clear, dark amber with a thin light tan head. Leaves some lacing. Light aroma with hops and malt in about equal proportion. Taste starts mainly malty, turns more hoppy, finishes with a mostly hoppy, and has a surprisingly strong and long lasting hop aftertaste. The N. American hops make this a bit earthy and more bitter than an average pale ale. Medium body with some crispness. Quite dry. A unique and pleasing new worth seeking out. Classified by brewer as an IPL.

5 Seasons 285 Gridlock ESB
On tap at the brewpub (from Jan. 2012 notes) ... the only way to enjoy their beers, almost all of which are worthy of wider distribution. This "traditional English style ale brewed with four malts and four hops", arrived with a large creamy tan head that had exceptional durability. Moreover, the glass was mostly covered by creamy bubbles as the beer lowered. The beer is a dark reddish-brown; clear and attractive. Somewhat dank and earthy aroma, rather par for the course with an ESB, but not appreciated nonetheless. The flavor is richer, i think, than usual in this style, with a slightly lower malt/hop ratio. In any case, there is a clear hop spiciness together with a rich malt base.

5 Season Prado Hot Nuts Scotch Ale
From a cask at the 2016 Atlanta Cask Ale Festival. Hazy red brown body topped by a bubbly beige head. Pleasing spicy aroma dominated by cardamom and cinnamon. Over spiced but certainly not bad. Still, the spicing is too strong for the underlying scotch ale. Pleasant spicy aftertaste with cinnamon, cardamom and faint ginger. Body is a bit thin for style.

5 Seasons Redneck Reindeer
On tap at the Prado location in December 2015. Pours dark mahogany in color with a decent head that leaves almost no lacing. The aroma mostly reflects the bourbon and bourbon barrel aging. This is not a bad thing, especially with Heaven Hill involved. Flavor: very mildly bitter. Mouthfeel: soft and smooth, with warming but almost no heat from the high (~ 9,5%) ABV. Light carbonation with a medium body. O: Highly recommended for fans of this style..

Apparently a different recipe than the old one that has been retired and I remember that one being a bit sweeter, but this is still an excellent malt lager. Nutty, drier that other versions, but definitely on the malty side.

5 Seasons Two Pence Porter
On tap at the Prado 5 Seasons. Pours black, with a small, creamy, tan head. Nose is roasted coffee, syrup, bitter chocolate, and a little licorice. Sweet, with a significant bitterness, and a long, acrid, bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body, chalky, and thick. Overall, this is a weak, unpleasant porter. Could be much better.

5 Seasons Whole Shebang
On tap at the pub. Lots going on from the barrel, primarily dominated by the tequila agave bite. Notes of cabernet grape in there as well. The base beer though is relatively muted and not hefty enough to carry all of these barrels through. Still a little syrupy caramel malt from the scotch. Interesting to try and would love to see a similar barrel action with a bigger beer.
