COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A lighter, yet full-flavored, aromatic Ale for the long days of summer. Twilight’s solid malt foundation pairs with distinctive Amarillo hops for flavors every bit as intriguing as bigger, heavier ales. A back porch, lingering sunset wonder.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Golden straw color pour with a foamy white head. Aroma of light malt and sweet light fruits. Flavor is similarly sweet and fruity, but with just a hint of a floral hoppiness on the finish. Medium bodies and refreshing on the palate. Not a bad summer brew.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle at GBBF.
Pale gold with a thin white head. Fairly tropical hoppage all round. Nice grapefruit notes, some peach and not really enough malt to give it a back bone. Nice flavours just a bit lifeless.

harrisoni (14586) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle from GBBF 08. I’ve always thought that Deschutes were under-rated and a little over looked. It’s a little hazy straw coloured with a thickish ivory head. Smells like a sweaty sox hop UK golden ale. You know what? It’s a bit like a souped up Woodforde’s Wherry. Crazy but it does. A little stronger, a little less malty and yeasty, but the hops are very reminiscent of Wherry. It’s great. I’m sat here in Ashford, drinking beer from Oregon. Does life get much better?

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is peach, tropical fruits and sweet wood. Flavour is the same with a big grassy finish.

thooper41 (549) - BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2008
12oz botte: pours golden brown with slow fading off white head, aroma not much more than a hint of malt, flavor takes about two sips to get used to but has a slighty malty bitter taste with a hint of orange, i can see why this is their summer brew. not bad

I feel like a crazy person, but I actually hunted down this website and signed up just to see what other people thought of this beer. Got a six pack from the grocery store and, while I’m normally a big Deschutes fan, this just drinks like it had 98% of the flavor sucked right out of it. The hoppy aroma is there, it looks great in the glass, everything seems to be going OK, but there’s this big area in the middle of the flavor spectrum that’s just empty. Maybe it’s just me, maybe I got a weird bottling, but I felt like I needed to share. I can taste the beauty in anything from homemade sorghum brew to a red cup of room temperature Natty Lite, but for some reason this beer just didn’t click with me at all. And that inexplicably makes me feel *guilty* and *ashamed*. Please, somebody tell me I’m not crazy.

theisti (3395) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2008
12 oz bottle purchased at the Safeway in Sequim, Washington. Best before 10/18/08 on the bottle. Pour is a cloudy orange ruby with a nice off-white head. Aroma of fresh citrus and floral hops. There is alse a strong malt backbone. Taste is more of the hops and malt, nicely in balance. Nice medium palate. Nice beer.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a straw color with medium white head. Aroma is malty and grassy. Flavor is malty with hints of sweetness that leads to a grassy and lightly bitter finish. Body is medium with light carbonation. Not bad at all, another easy drinker for summer.

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Bottle, Pours golden with a hint of an orange hue. Nice 1 inch white head but it dissipates quickly. Aromas of grassy citrus yeast. Flavor very much the same minus the yeast plus some hops at the end. Palate is a bit watery from deschutes. I remember liking this alot better a few years back.
