Old Review
Glad to see 5 Seasons Westside brews have made it up. This review is from notes since I didn't know the exact names of the beers when I had them. My server on used the styles when I had this on tap at the brewpub.

A: Hits the table as light orange, maybe dark yellow in color. There is a bit of a cloudiness in here, but most light does penetrate all the way through and you can see through to some parts of the glass. The head was about half a finger, crisp and white. Sadly retention fell a bit in a hurry and there was no lacing thrown up on the glass. Not bad at all but nothing amazing here.

S: Smell is nice. Really nice malt character that is pale and bit bready. Very earthy aromas coming out of what I imagine to be the hops. Getting some floral and light fruity notes. Everything is pretty subdued and rather mild. I would imagine this be in line with the style then.

T: Almost mirrors the nose but brings it up just a notch IMO. The malts are very present and pleasant. Absolutely pale malts, nothing to crazy or sweet. The hops add just a touch of bitterness in here, balancing nicely. Just a touch floral but mostly a citrus presence. There is an underlying sweetness I can't put my finger on but its nice, maybe a little sweet butter or honey butter.

M: Torn between calling this light or medium in body. If it is medium, it is the on the lightest side. Carbonation is at a medium to low level, just enough to keep it lively. This brew finishes pretty clean with just a touch of malt lingering on the palate.

D: Absolutely and easy drinker. Very sessionable, hence the name. Goes down easy and is a pleasure to drink. This beer is small and delicate but that doesn't mean its not any good. It was perfect for sipping on the outdoor area on the first level and enjoyed with my meal. I really wish this style was a bit more prevalent here because I think it has a lot to offer in the drinkability department. A nice example of that you don't need ABV to make a good beer.
