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.

Ratman197 (9034) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Bottle poured a hazy orange with a lingering off white head. Aromas of light citrus, bread and straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light orange, a hint of lemon and a bit of straw with a crisp lightly bitter finish. Very drinkable but nothing about it stands out.

Bottle. Golden straw colored with a medium-sized head. Slightly citrus, bready smell - nothing strong or tempting. Tastes kind of the same... flavor is pretty thin with a bitter end and funky aftertaste. Vaguely refreshing since it’s so thin... meh.

12 oz bottle. Decent golden with some head. Some bready yeast and malts on the aroma. Similar to that on the flavor, with some hop bite to finish it off. Refreshing and crisp, but not excellent.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 12-oz. One of the few unfamiliar labels that’s actually put me in the mood for the style of beer in the bottle--and then contained a beer that could keep the promise the label made. It was a little better last year but that may have just been the novelty of it.
Pours a very cloudy gold. A spritz of white foam here and there on the top. Big yeasty nose with a bit of orange zest; olfactorily, it doesn’t exactly promise refreshment. But there’s a nice citric tang to the finish a mild creaminess to the attack that just work together in a sum-of-the-parts way that’s almost paradoxical. There’s a tingle to the mouthfeel after the attack, and it picks up a bit of hop on the way to the finish; say, just enough to be a bitter.
Easily my favorite Deschutes beer from this side of the color wheel; Obsidian and Butte are really something but the "lower orders" of beer from them have always seemed like afterthoughts, at least artisanally. (Though I am sure their accountant would not describe Mirror Pond as an afterthought.)
Anyway. Twilight’s a killer Indian summer beer, when the days get a little shorter and cooler. Not quite the aggressive scorching-day quencher of a great APA or IPA, but a great nice-day drink.

12 oz bottle. Straw-colored with small head and some lazing. Spicy citrus (lemon) aroma with hints of sweet malt. Taste is similiar with a light mouthfeel. Nice dry bitter finish. Not a bad beer, but Deschutes makes a whole hell of lot better beers than Twilight.

bitbucket (2158) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottled. Pours partly cloudy with a chance of lace: golden with an off-white head. The aroma lightly nutty, malty. The body is light with minimal carbonation. The taste has some actual bitterness to it, unlike the other (crappy) bitters I’ve sampled. The taste is restrained and very slightly sweet with some nuts and fruit, just a dash of vanilla. Nicely bitter crisp finish with some spice. OMG, a bitter that’s not a drainpour! This is even verging on being sessionable.

WhiteSoxFan (152) - USA - AUG 9, 2006
Draft at PSG on 7/22/06. Just slightly cloudy. Very light copper / orangish yellow. 1 cm. pretty creamy white head. Nice thick layer of foam sticks around. Nice, big lacing. Aroma - not strong. Light citrus aroma. Flavor - Decent bitterness up front. Nice, crisp. Smooth and balanced in the middle. Very citrusy in the finish - limey, lemony, orange. Also a little malty sweetness. Dry finish. Palate - Pretty light, good carb. Overall - Pretty tasty summer ale. Good, light, refreshing, a little heavy on the citrus, but good.

ross (2052) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle from Ken (kenb) Thanks! Pours out a yellow color without much of a head. Smell is fruit, hops, and malts. Taste very similar, rather weak, but still refreshing. Not too bad. Not really much to say about it either.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Clear light orange-yellow color, fruity citrus & pear aroma. Malty grainy, lightly acidic, dry finish with a medium body. A very nicely crafted summer beer, went down very well on a hot afternoon.
