3.25/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium brown body with a smallish, frothy, off-white head. Splotchy lacing on the way down.

Smell: Spicy, softly floral scent with some earthy malt hints underneath.

Taste: Mildly flavorful taste of dry dark caramel with only a little bit of malt sweetness. Some biscuity tones. Spicy hops with a medium-low bitterness. Some more biscuity tones. Finishes dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-low carbonation.

Drinkability: A decent ESB, though I prefer mine a bit more on the maltier side.

Stopped by here after making the trek up to the Sandy Springs area.

Pours a pretty clear dark brown color with a one-finger white head. The head soon dissipates into a patchy layer on top and a medium-sized ring around the glass. Lacing isn't very sticky.

Smells great. Huge floral and citrus hop aromas with a bready malt that asserts itself more as the beer warms.

Tastes alright. There's not a lot going on. The hops add almost no flavor to the beer, they serve just as bittering agents. There's a mild sweet malt taste up front that like the smell becomes more bready as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel is good. It's very light, but the carbonation is such that it's not watery. It goes down smoothly.

Drinkability is good. Although the flavors aren't very pronounced, it's a tasty beer, and it goes down easily.

Overall I think this would make a good session beer. It's very refreshing and not overpowering. I'd take some of Five Seasons's other beers before this one, especially the Oatmeal Stout, but it's still a solid offering.

Color is a rick dark red-brown with no cloudiness. Aroma is faint but has an interesting metallic hint (well, it is called COPPER head, eh?). Flavor is strongly hoppy, plenty of bitterness, with smoky undertones and a soupcon of metallic. This is a good beer to sip with dinner or stimulating conversation.

European hops in this Vienna, and well malted, caramel. Thin, not complex, easy drink but malt and finish was not satisfying.Medium body. Fresh, significant lace. Good hop taste throughout, and effort to really balance it. Citrusy. A nice session ale.

Another brew sampled before the Great Atlanta Pub Crawl on 2/21/04. This one is a clear, dark copper with an offwhite head that coats the glass with rings of sheety lace. Aroma is caramel malts with a background of Cascades style floral hops. Mouthfeel has medium carbonation and very mild hops bite. Taste is ruled by nice caramel maltiness, with pine and grapefruit for a fine hops balance. Very full bodied flavors soak the palate. This is a well crafted, tasty brew that is an ideal session ale. Another excellent offering from this brewpub.

This is a deep clear brown with a puffy cream of a light khaki head. There's plenty of caramelly malt in the aroma and tast, but there's not a lot of hop bitterness. Nice fruitiness. With a light hoppy finish that is a little lemon and a little herb. There's a very creamy mouthfeel that makes this a very satisfying beer.
