Moderately roasty and sweet with a complement of mild hoppiness. Finish is very malty and full. Good session beer. jw0406 (1265) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 Draft pours a dark amber color with a small white head. Aromas of sweet maly, caramel, bread. Light bodied, refreshing. Gachupines (1252) - USA - MAY 31, 2005
Decent attempt at the style and easy to drink. Dominated by malt presence with an interesting lingering aftertaste. Decent session beer. LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2007
not my favorite beer, but also not my fave style either. virtually no hops to speak of, with some carmel and malt and some earthy flavors. blah, take it or leave it, just very basic for 5 seasons IMO BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pretty enjoyable, I am glad this is on tap everytime I visit Atlanta. This is always a good first beer of the evening at the brewery. Hoppy, somewhat herbal nose and just a hint of sweet caramel as well. Pretty savory on the palate, with some sweet breadiness, but could have just a bit more fruit characters.

On draught at the spaceous brewpub. A clear amber but a mellow hops presence gives way to a very soft, rich malty flavor. A nice, well-balanced Bavarian beer. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Sampled at the brewpub in Atlanta, GA. Very well done, domestic example of marzen/oktoberfestbier. I love the fact that this beer is a regular in the 5 Seasons line up. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep amber color, with a thick and creamy white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with lots of good toasty and nutty malt aromas. The palate is firm, with good sweet malty, toasty, and nuttty malt flavor, on a polished and clean body. This beer finishes with more good malt character up front, and then ends slightly cloying, with some grassy hop bitterness to balance. A very good beer from Atlanta’s best brewpub. Matches well with a number of dishes on the menu at the brewpub, and is a beer that should not be missed if you visit 5 Seasons. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Mild well-integrated caramel malts, smooth mouthfeel, no noticeable diacetyl. Clean drinking and not too syrupy. Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2009
On tap. Poured an amber copper, clear, off-white head, lacing. Aroma is malty, toasty, sweet. Taste is similar. Not too big. A session brew. Not bad, clean, and easy-drinking. Decent.
