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.

USCMustangman (41) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a small white head. Very little aroma. An orangey, citrus taste. A nice, thin palate for a summer beer. Overall a good beer that hits sthe spot on a warm day.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2006
Tasted 22/09/2006. 12oz bottle from BrewNZ. Orange-gold, slight haze, with no head. Caramel and a minerally yeast note dominate a fairly bland nose. A little malt sweetness lies beneath a sharp yeast and nettle-like hop dominated flavour. Light-medium weight, medium carbonation. Rather lifeless. Hopefully itís lost something on the way here.

brianprentiss (675) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2010 Iím gonna go a bit higher than the avg on this one. Itís pretty unique and a good fit for the ambience the label calls for - okay, Iím a sucker. But worth a try, anything from Deshutes is worth a try. re-rate. itís a year later, and i really donít like this beer near as much. Iím going from 3.7 to 3.3.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo í06... Drank this one after dawn on Friday, September 1st. Walked outside in the stiff breeze and checked out everyoneís damage. Some folks lost roofs, windows and doors. Most other houses lost a couple dozen shingles. All told, we lost seven shinglesÖ thatís all. God watches over babies and drunks, I guess. Anyway, back to the beerÖ lightly hazy, apricot-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is of wildflower honey. Perfectly balanced flavor but a bit thin and bland. Light to medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Lengthy, mildly bitter, dry, and finally, grassy finish. Thanks go out to kenb for the bottle!

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Yellow gold. White pillowy foam clings to the glass. Perfumey aroma, doughy yeast, earthy hops, honey and unspent grains (hay dust). Hard, palate scrubbing carbonation. Initially airy with a blend of fluffy lightly toasted malts and a sneaky earthy brashness produced by the hops. Fairly empty at the center and also very grainy, but itís well balanced and fairly clean. Touch of fruitiness sneaks in, but itís mostly dry. Lengthy peppery hop bitterness and lightly toasted malts comprise a large portion of the bland but integrated finish. Interestingly, the nose is highly alcoholic for something so modest in strength, and also quite yeasty and grainy. Very unexciting, but serves its purpose as a decent introductory to craft beer.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 5, 2006
A Bitter? I doubt it. Sweet, light, smooth malt and wheat flavors with a bit of citrus. Good for a hot summer day, but thatís about it.

OldMrCrow (1939) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle.

Pours a nearly-clear light amber with a modest head.The aroma is dusty grass and a bit of lemon; the flavor is a mellow sesionable bitters, definite British character, hints of green apple, a bit of spicy bite from the malts, thin mouthfeel, metallic finish.

Perfectly drinkable summer ale and more or less what one might have expected out of Deschutesí regular line.

Ratman197 (10192) - 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.

sistinas (101) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 31, 2006
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 itís so thin... meh.
