Deschutes makes fantastic light ales. Cascade and Twilight are very nice drinking. Summer Ale - got it... scottmc (167) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Bottle. Cirtus hoppy aroma, with a malty hidden smell. A mild body with a golden almost orange hue when poured, with very small head. VTHopHead (1513) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle - Poured a hazy golden amber in color with a small whitish head. Aroma is fairly strong of floral hops. Flavor is citrusy with fruity esters mixed throughout. Slightly sour in the mouth , but bitter on the finish. Nicely balanced with an almost hidden maltiness. Very easy drinking... a real pleasure. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 25, 2007

smell of dandelions, hops, and hay.
taste is light, tangy, a bit of citrus.
good balance, nice beer that is not that heavy.
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 its about time that a sumer seasonal was an american pale ale. Too many brewers make wheat beer their seasonal. This beer is mild and nice. good on a warm day. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Golden copper pour with a small yet substantial creamy white head. Nice floral nose with bready character. Bitter and slightly sweet/fruity flavor. Finish is a little missing, but over all a nice sessionable summer brew. jdp (59) - Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle from Costco in Salem, OR. Pours a golden amber with a good white head. Smells of slight grassy hops and green (tad early harvested?) malt. Taste is of good malt undertones and nice spicy hop overtone. This beer has a really good combination of malt versus hop. Makes for a nice light refreshing beer. mrant (330) - New York, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Smells very fragrant, somewhat floral. Pours a beautiful straw color. Taste is light and delicate with a good quantity of hops. A nice refreshing beer on a hot day. talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Pours a mostly clear, golden color with a fairly small, pillowy-rocky, white head with fair longeviy and minimal lace. Nose is fair at best; grass, bread notes, and a hint of citrus. Flavor is similar with some sweet grains, light citrus and grassy hops bringing a moderately light bitterness. Palate is nearly light, almost fizzy, and crisp. Finishes very short and a little bitter. Nothing special, just a nice summer golden ale.
