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.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this one stacked up in a private Vancouver store, but didn’t want to waste my budget on another blond. Then even more pleasantly surprised to find this on tap at St. Augustine’s. It was plasantly surprisingly hoppy, this is a pale ale, with orange citus taste. Faint hops. Nicely drinkable.

Rune (11055) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2009
One-third pint, gravicask from the USA bar at GBBF 09. Missing head, clear amber body. Inviting smell of apricote. Malt-fruity taste with underlying dry yeast and smooth bitterness to the ending. Easy to drink, refreshing and moreish (London, 05.08.2009).

daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Apricot pour, white head. Lightly hoppy aroma with some basic caramel malt and an unpleasant graniny smell. Flavor is ok on the hoppy side, malts taste bland and old. Has almost a macro flavor to it. Mouthfeel isn’t good.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Drank this one after dawn on Friday, September 1st. Walked outside in the stiff breeze and checked out everyone’s damage. Some folks lost roofs, windows and doors. Most other houses lost a couple dozen shingles. All told, we lost seven shingles… that’s all. God watches over babies and drunks, I guess. Anyway, back to the beer… 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!

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle @ home. Mildly cloudy, yellow orange appearance with a white head. Mild earthy, grapefruit hoppy, orange citrusy, a touch tangy aroma. Grapefruit hoppy, sweet creamy pale malty flavor. Refreshing, citrusy ale. Probably would be a great session beer- glad I tried this again after a couple years of missing it.

Clear golden with medium beige head. Sweet fruity aroma with hops and pine. Sweet flavor with hopy and caramel notes. Ends bitter.

rosenbergh (10208) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Draught at the Deschutes Taproom, Portland, OR.
Cloudy orange golden colour with a small off-white head. Sweet fruity and floral hops, mild bitterness and mild sweetness in the aroma. Sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness and some sweet maltiness in the flavour. Easy and fruity.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has lots of grass with some sweet grains and a hint of underlying light fruits. Flavor combines grain and grass with a growing sweetness towards the finish.

"not really a blonde, but not really a pale ale.. way too hoppy to be classified as such, even though it’s still a pretty mellow ale. Clean, quite smooth, nothing spectacular."
