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

ClarkVV (4334) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Draught pint at Redbones on 10/11/07
Peachy-copper, with a slight chill-haze and foamy, large white head that shows moderate retention, light lacing.
Sweet honeyish malts combine with soft hop notes of peach, apricot and tangerine. Strong apricot, slightly mushy but with some straw-like streaks on the end that grant moderate dryness. The hops are pleasant, the malt as well, but as in every hoppy offering from Deschutes, I get just a severely plasticy, celery-like yeastiness that cuts through on the finish and is quite disconcerting.
Nothing different in the flavor, unfortunately, and itís a shame, because the malts are soft, fluffy and well-attenuated, while the hops are moderately bitter and quite flavorul, not throwing off too much bitterness. Vanilla creeps in and there is some graininess that cuts at the palate, but itís otherwise very drinkable, especially on account of the dryness. Some gobs of sugar dot the way to the end, but arenít overbearing. Just wish it didnt have that really strong yeastiness.....

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle... Poured a foggy orange with a thick white head. Malt is primarily in the aroma. Foamy and chewy texture, this reminded of a super hoppy lagerish beer, even thought I know itís way off from a lager, whenever I a try a lager I wish they would taste like this beer. Anyway, I really enjoyed this one, it was better than I thought it would be. Great hop presence with a caramel-malt balance.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Bottle. Hazy orange color with a strong floral aroma and a hint of malt in the background. The The bitter hops are up front and then a subtle maltiness finishes it with a tab bit of lingering bitterness. It is refreshing and I can imagine it doing the thirst quenching in the summer.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle. Lager like aroma. Some hops. Some good citrus in the flavor, light hops. Whatís the difference between a lager and a bitter - the fact that itís seasonal. Good for a lager, if theyíd called it that I wouldíve rated it better.

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Poured a light golden color with a nice flakey white head. Aroma of hops and citris. Very nice ale. Not overdone on the hops while finishing bitter and smooth. Nice balance overall. Par for the course for Deschutes. Too bad itís seasonal.

SDalkoholic (2235) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 24, 2007
12 oz bottle: Appears as a brass colored beer with sediment floating throughout the liquid as a gentle layer of foam sits peacefully on top. The nose is mild with no real personality to distinguish it from the next ESB but hey they canít all be great. Flavor is boring with only small notice of honey and earthy hops.
