A - Served a clear mahogany with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of rich sweet caramel malts with a bit of citrus hops and some bready malts.

T - Starts off with some sweet rich caramel malts with a touch of citrus hops in the background. Through the middle, a touch of bitterness comes through with a bit more citrus hops and a bit of toastiness. The finish is a mix of light bitterness with some citrus hops and sweet rich caramel malts.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and just a touch syrupy with a sweet finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice hoppy amber. The hop and malt balance is pretty good here.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Light amber in color, served with little to no head--just a thin foam circling the glass.
S: Pretty subdued smell; some light sweet malts and some grain.
T: Taste is mainly the sweet malts and low-sweetness caramel. Also a hint of alcohol present on the ending. A bit surprising; though I don't know the abv, I don't think it was particularly high and wasn't expecting to taste the alcohol.
M: Pretty light; a good food beer, not too high in flavor or carbonation.
D: Probably won't get it again (since Jupiter has such a great guest beer list), but it's not too bad.
