A sweet wonderful pour of heaven in a tall lager glass. Drank this rather quickly on the brewery tour. Nice toffee colored head when I picked it up off the bar. A medium amber in color. Well balanced with a smooth finish. What is to be expected out of a Vienna Lager. Only 1 fault!! Not enough to drink!!! 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. Cybercat (6333) - Georgia, USA - FEB 18, 2007
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. ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2010
Appearance: Arrived in a tall, slender mug with a clear, copper-toned body topped off with a finger of white foam maintained by a constant, steady stream of fine carbonation.
Smell: Sweetish, predominately bready nose of German malts. Slight hint of light caramel. Mild notes of spicy, earthy hops.
Taste: Opens with a notably sweet taste of sugar-encrusted, toasted bread crusts. Additional hint of caramel. Very small hint of grain. Clear lager yeastiness. Lightly spicy hop presence with a small measure of imparted bitterness. Bready, sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel overall.
Drinkability: Always a good choice at the 5. A pleasant beer that drinks very (sometimes a bit too) easily and pairs with a wide range of foods. Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2004
Clear golden color with a durable off white head. Nice yeasty bread dough aroma. Nice hoppy flavor as well. 5 Seasons is freakin awesome.

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. SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Deep gold color with a white head.
Rich malty aroma.
Smooth delivery and good overall balance. Nicely done Vienna. fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Clear amber brown in color. Light off-white head. Smooth body and very bready and fruity. smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2009
I rated this one before I saw the reviews. Frankly, I’m surprised that this beer scored as low as it did. I think this is a fine Marzen/Munich style beer. It is gold-amber in color and only slightly hazy. Excellent lace was left on the glass.
The aroma is mild--very low hop with only a hint of malted barley.
What impressed the most was the mouthfeel. This is a soft beer with a generous dose of fine good-champagne bubbles. Absolutely delightful on the tongue. The beer flavor is more typical of the style.
