Pale copper color, light head. Nose is fresh bread and a hint of citrus. Beer is well balanced, with some honey, grain, and grapefruit lingering on the finish. A bit thin, and rather banal, but on a hot day it’ll do just fine. Kevin (2218) - Montana, USA - JUL 28, 2007
bottle. hazy light tan with a sticky white head with large bubbles. yeah, i get the hops in the nose, floral, grassy, resinlike scent with some light orange peel scents. it’s really cool to look at if it is poured right after taking from the fridge. looks like something in stasis, like the carbonation bubbles are just stuck in the middle of my glass while others near the outside roll up the sides. first taste to hit me is the bitterness when i take a sip. grapefruit & grass mix well. a lingering citrus in the finish. enjoyable fruity malt flavor keeps this relatively balanced. just a touch of caramel like sweetness comes through w/a bit of butter. the only real negative here is the bitterness can start to taste a bit burnt & the nose is a touch metallic/wet asphalt. but i’m not upset i bought a six pack. i like the carbonation level here too. it seems a bit higher than normal & really works well w/the flavors in this to bring them out. there is a nice dough like sweetness that i want to say is marris otter? but who knows, it reminds me of maris otter, so i’ll stick with that.

12 oz. bottle. A solidly average summer seasonal. Dark straw color, weak head, nice clean hop presence in nose and flavor. I prefer the Pine Mountain Pils over this one, but Twilight is drinkable. troopie (2531) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle. Pale orange tangerine. Thin white head. Not much aroma, increases in strength as the beer warms. Mild bitterness n the flavour. Slight lingering finish. This is a drinkable hot weather beer, well balanced, but nothing to rave about. Oakes (19550) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2007
Slightly hazy golden amber. Light aroma with grassy (Willamette?) boring hop. Same on the palate - painfully boring and a real buzzkill. It’s well made - you can’t fault the balance or any of that stuff - but it is pretty far from inspirational.

Slightly foggy orange amber, thin white head. Aroma is floral and citrus hoppiness, slight caramel note, pretty decent aroma. Taste is grapefruit, orange, light hoppiness, pretty fruity. hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2007

Bottle from Safeway, Port Angeles, WA; Nose of caramel and vanilla with some graininess; gold with a big, short-lived, off white head; flavor has some caramel, hop bitterness, and even some tartness and peppery spices. bhensonb (16122) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of floral and citrus hop. Very nice aroma. Sort of a golden amber color. The head went so fast I didn’t notice it. A bit thin bodied. Carbonation is moderate, with a slight bite. Not bothersome. Starts with bready malt. Backed with a slight hint of citrus sour. A bit of hot spice. Flowery hop comes up to balance things out. It’s really quite pleasant. Finish is fairly dry. Bitter it is. Wouldn’t drink it constantly, but hey, it’s a seasonal! DYCSoccer17 (3719) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 29, 2007
12 ounce bottler from a 6 pack purchased at Nugget on Covell in Davis, CA. Sweet, sugary, toffee-like nose. Lots of floral aromas present, too. Very aromatic and somewhat pleasant. Mildly hazy orange-golden body with a small, quickly dissipating off-yellowish head. Sticky, sweet, quite carbonated flavors to start. Lightly lemony-biscuity maltiness in the middle. A fair amount of spicy, peppery hoppiness to finish. Very pedestrian.
