chinchill (5069) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Tall mug served at the brewpub.
Excellent presentation, with a deep amber body animated by fine carbonation and covered by a bone-colored, dense head. Very good lacing.
Well crafted but, being true to style, neither innovative not complex.
Good with food.

On draft at the pub. 7% abv per menu. My notes say orange, sweet malt and good! DialSquare (5062) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2009
On tap from the 5 Seasons brewpub. From my notes: copper pour. sweet malty aroma. medium texture. little on the sweet side for the style. subtle spice. little acidic in finish. ChainGangGuy (4895) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, copper body with a small, fine, white head.
Smell: Sweetish, toasty biscuit nose with a slight, underlying fruit character.
Taste: Toasty biscuit malts start things off, then a sugary light caramel taste enters with a Red Delicious apple fruitiness. Light floral, spicy hops and bitterness. Still, it finishes relatively sweet with a lingering yeastiness.
Mouthfeel: Just barely medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Somewhat sticky mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A pleasant light beer, it would be great in great quantities. nearbeer (5452) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Clear copper with a small creamy head. Aroma of caramel and slight corn. Flavor is similar with a light grain and apple touch. Light-medium body is tingly and dryish.
BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - APR 6, 2008
This is what I call a big and tall beer. Large aromas of dark fruits, and a flavor that grabs you and will not let you go. Very malty with lots of earthy wood notes, slight hop bitterness in the finish, very drinkable. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2009 Pours a clear amber color with a white fluffy head. Aroma is sweet, malty, and caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel and a light spicy bitter finish.

Cybercat (5877) - Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Pours a dark honey-golden with a nice thick head. Aroma is quite strong and all malty. Flavor is rich and malty with a strong hint of spices. This ale is very smooth and pleasant, and the aftertaste is jazzy with a hint of hops. TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Pours golden amber with a thin, mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of bread dough, crackery malts, and light caramel sweetness. Tastes of crisp toasted malt balanced, lightly sweetened crackers. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, with the perfect balance between sweet and dry. Moderate carbonation. As American brewers go, 5 Seasons has pretty much nailed the German session lagers. fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Amber color. Caramel and malty in aroma. Slightly tart and bready in flavor.
