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.

Could be a Nice summer drinker with hop notes galore and a maltiness.. But I'd like it to be much smoother. As of now would be a repeater. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Picked this 6íer up just for the sake of variety. Itís, itís...uninspired and predictable: little of this, little of that. One of those styles that really shouldnít be made.

Deschutes is a badass brewery that makes some mind-blowingly good beers. In some ways that works against Twilight Ale because my expectations were damn high for it. Sadly, itís just not on par with some of the other brews in terms of boldness and balance. That said, itís definitely drinkable. Aroma is on the light side but itís fairly complex with pine, biscuity malt, grapefruit, and apricot. Taste follows the nose but with the spiciness of Amarillo hops offering another flavor dimension. I really liked the finish which was plenty bitter and crisp. The 5% ABV is another upside to this beer. As the name suggests, this ale is quite fitting for the conclusion of a hot summer day. Twilight isnít a total letdown but itís not a memorable seasonal either. Hey, at least it doesnít have any shitty vampires in it. Sorry, I had to make that joke.

Golden color with a dusty earthy citrus hop aroma, orange and earth. Nice balancing toast flavor from the malt. Dry finish slightly fizzy. Good and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheAlum (5621) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2014
12 oz bottle from the Binnys South Loop Singles Rack (Chicago, IL). Pours a deep golden orange hue, a faint haze and lively carbonation shows a.. wait for it.. twilight hued glow through the body. Cakey whitish head atop stays fairly large with nice stick around and lacing overall. Aromas are a touch citrusy, gentle lemon with grassy and floral hops. Faint kiss of melon, bready malts and grainy elements. A touch dulled, some soap, mellow yeast and crusty fresh bread. Initial is lighter end of the fold with just a bit of girth. Middling bitterness shows some florals, a touch of citrus. Gentle white grape, some bready malts and melon. More florals, a bit spicy and yeasty into the backend. Some gentle rind and pithy feel into the backend and finish. Touch bitterm lingering bready malts as the hops donít trail out and end a bit abruptly. Ok.

Very refreshing, good for a hot summer day. Crisp and clean taste. Enough going on to get me to grab another

Had to weigh in on this one. Its not as bad as the rating number might suggest. Overall, its a good light ale that doesnt fade in taste like so many. Very drinkable though nothing amazing.

Pours a clear golden brown with a medium white head. Citrus aroma with hints of pine and somewhat nutty. Good balance between light bitter and sweetness. Very light body with a very crisp texture. Itís a very refreshing beer thatís perfect for a hot day. However, itís not special and there are better summer beers out there.

MarkSachon (560) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2014
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Pours a crisp golden yellow with a minimal head. Immediate flavors of lemon and orange. A tartness lies underneath. Great refresher for a hot summer day.

Twilight Ale is a hazy amber beer with a head of white tiny bubbles. Nose is apricots. There is a nice acrid bite on the front of the taste that has a medium malty middle with a good apricot end. A refreshing option in summer beers that are mostly citrus and wheaty. More than anything else, i appreciate the change of pace from the typical seasonal offerings

On tap. Pours amber with moderate head. Aromas of toasts and sweet malts. Flavors of toast, light marmalade and dried apricots. Toasty/butter finish. Malty and tasty.
