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.

I wanted to like this beer but just didnít. It was hand delivered to me after a trip to Portland and its sampling was quite anticipated. It is a nice looking beer with a pleasant orange hue and it has a pretty cool head that fades to a subtle lacing. The aroma was one I could not quite get a handle on. Perhaps the complicated mixture of hops was the issue. However, the combination of tartness and bitter was unpleasant. Towards the end of the glass I was anxious for the it to be empty. Well, that is beer tasting for you. To those who love this beer CHEERS!

pinkzambia (1395) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle: Pours an average, off-white frothy head with uneven, but good lacing. The color is a light orange with a bit of LA haze. It has an initial lightly sweet flavor finishing a little bitter which I like. Main standout aroma was grainy malts and perfume hops. It has a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Overall, A nice refreshing beer.

hayduke (3164) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Bottle. Pours amber/yellow with a nice light brown, long lasting head. Niice nose with a hint of citrus. Good hop flavor with malt background. Very nice feel in the mouth. A nice summer beer, and good for a bitter.

footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 25, 2004
bottled 12 oz. Orange/golden colored with medium head. Yeasty smell. skunky taste. Bad beer. Need to try again but I have not been too impressed with any other Deschutes products.

Garbbled (24) - Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2005
This beer is like American Idolís final show of the season--it leads you on with a bunch of filler, only to give you what you want at the end. This beer has a great finish, too bad the start and the middle tastes like your average cheap lager

jstu9 (402) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2005
(tap) Wow, I havenít rated a beer in awhile. And I noticed I am 1 away from 400. So, I guess this is #400. Had a nice froth, and it looked like my old nemesis the wheat ale. It had that cloudy look to it, but out in the sun, it actually looked pretty nice. The taste was only moderately sweet, though it tasted quite nice in the sun. Nothing super special, but it was a nice beer to drink on a summerís day.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Clear deep golden body with moderate carbonation and a thick, tight sudsy white head. Citrusy hop aroma and light fruity malt background. Smells like a sweet fruity cereal. Fruit Loops comes close. Juicy flavor with light malty sweetness, a touch of tart acidity, and medium-low bitterness. Medium-thin body. An easy-drinking, refreshing summer bitter.

Terminus (3148) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 31, 2005
12 oz bottle-pours a light orange hue with a small sudsy white head. good lacing and medium carbonation. citric aroma-mango, tangerine and some tropical notes. flavors are very citric with some good pale malt base. body is verging on thin, but makes this beer refreshing for the summer. long citric hop finish. I think this beer is pretty decent for what it is and would make a good summer quaffer here in NM.
