5 Seasons Taylor Harper Oatmeal Porter
On tap at the Westside location. Dark red-brown body with good clarity but near opaque nonetheless. A very durable tan head leaves ample lacing. Aroma: dark roasted grains with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor. Mildly bitter mid-taste and into the finish. Moderately strong flavor dominated by the grain bill and with some smoke and minimal char. Medium+ body with light carbonation. Smooth.

5 Seasons Come on Mayor Reed! Let Atlanta Get Growlers of this IPA!
On tap at the Westside location. With the new law passed, this is now called "Thanks to Mayor Reed and the Atlanta City Council for Allowing Us to Fill Growlers! IPA" Hazy golden body with a very good white head that has fine retention and leaves ample lacing. Aroma: pungent hops. Floral and piney. Flavor. Mildly bitter for style, and way more quaffable than the aroma suggests. Moderately strong flavor dominated by the hops which create tones of citrus fruits and some herbs. Medium body with near medium carbonation. Overall: recommended. ... and thanks Atlanta.

5 Seasons Westside Iceboxxx Watermelon Wheat
On tap at the Westside location. Amber color body with excellent clarity and a good white head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Moderately fruity aroma with at least as much hop as melon; watermelon rind too. Flavor is less hoppy and has a stronger, clearer watermelon aspect. Mildly bitter overall. Light bodied but not watery; appropriate, light carbonation. Overall: a watermelon beer thatís not sweet.

On tap at the Westside location. Hazy yellow gold color with a good white head and plenty of lacing. Very fruity aroma with plenty of pineapple. Pineapple in the flavor too, along with other tropical fruits and buckwheat pancakes. Mildly bitter finish. Borders on 8. Light bodied to th point of being a touch watery, but that seems more acceptable here than in most beers. Overall: excellent choice in the gluten free world.

5 Seasons Westside Giverny French Oak Saison
Appearance: Served up an opaque, tawny orange-tan body with a slim, off-white head. Smell: Toasted bread, a vinous quality and some fruit skins. A touch of minerality. Floral, redolent spices and wafting alcohol make for a rather perfumy bouquet. Taste: Bready, moderately toasty with a strong sense of sweet, alcohol-drizzled fruitcake. Chopped orchard offerings with figs, golden raisins, all leisurely soaked in alcohol. An encroaching, earthy spiciness and tannic hint. Fairly warm. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Rather digestif-y!

5 Seasons Come on Mayor Reed! Let Atlanta Get Growlers of this IPA!
Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of piney floral notes over malty sweetness and fruity yeast. Taste follows, yeast is too present, malt is over the top, hops are old. Not that great.

5 Seasons David B. Drake Pilsner
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste as you expect, bready grain, clean crisp lager yeast, and grassy floral hops. A little light on the hops for me, but not bad overall, easy drinker for sure, but a bit pricey for what it is.

5 Seasons Westside Belgium Amber Rye
Taps clear copper with a thick and rather fine-bubbled pale buff head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma presents tempting rye, fruity, malty, and subtle caramel and hoppy notes. Flavor delivers what the aroma promises, if not quite so intensely; this drinks very well. Body is typical, but fizz is strong. Rye-t on!

5 Seasons Westside Can You Believe That in the 21st Century in the United States
Taps hazy honey golden with a thick pale buff head. Hoppy aroma presents a strong citrus note, mainly orange, plus a touch of hay. Flavor is quite hoppy yet only a little bitter, and features grapefruit and orange tones plus a bit of malt. Firm body has persistent, if not strong, fizz. Can you believe that Georgia brews world-class beer - and still has such backwards laws? Rise up and raise hell, folks - the squeaky wheel gets the grease!

Appearance: Heavily clouded, pale milky orange-gold body with a seafoam spray head.

Smell: Fruity touches of papaya, pineapple and grapefruit supported by floral, resiny tones.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Overall, a soft mouthfeel.

Pours opaque coffee sable with a nice tan head. aroma presents milk chocolate, roast malt and quality coffee.

On tap @ 5 Seasons Westside. Cola colored beer with an off-white head. Roasty malts and a lot of cherry cough drops. Woody, charred wood, grape soda, and tea. Kind of just meh roasty, bitter, sugar water. Nothing here really worth revisiting.

Pours semi-transparent chestnut with a nice fine-bubbled buff head. Strong atom tempts with caramel, roast malt, horehound and dark fruit notes. Flavor rolls toasted malt, dark fruit, caramel, and subtle hoppy and horehound tones across the palate. Body is fair to middliní, but fizz is firm and lasting. Rankiní good!

5 Seasons Westside Molasses Porter
Pours warm coffee brown with a thin but serviceable buff head. Smoky aroma presents a definite molasses tone, plus roast malt and hints of chocolate. Roast malt and molasses lead the flavor, while chocolate and earthy and even hoppy notes co-star. Body is thin for a porter, but fizz is strong and persistent. Move your asses for molasses!

This one is kind of weird and I think itís the East Kent Golding used at this level. Floral, very fruity yeast type aromas mingle to make a beer that smells like it should be tart, but isnít.
