3.55/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a dark ruby color with a lighter tan frothy head. This beer looks really good. 4.5/5

S: There are some grassy hops up front before giving way to a sweeter maltyness. The lingering smell that u keep coming back to is one that smells like a cigar wrapper. There is also a a soapy scent in there. 2.5/5

T: There is a nice bitterness to this beer up front, that eventually gives way to a burnt malt taste - maybe this is the cigar wrapper hint that I picked up in the nose. As it warms there is a bit of alcohol flavor in there as well. 2/5

M: Medium bodied with minimal hop resin left behind. 3.5/5

D: This beer has two things I don't enjoy in it; a burnt flavoring, and an alcohol taste. This is not one that I would pick up again. With a name like Yakima Twilight, I had hope for a bit more hops. 1/5

---Consumed 12/10/10 - Renamed Yakima Glory. I'm glad I tried this again, I must have had a bad bottle last year.---

A: Pours a very dark brown the slightest hint of ruby.  The head is tan and frothy, but thins out after about a minute.

S: Piney and juicy fruits, pineapple.  The hop aroma is backed up by some roasted malts.

T: The hops are much more subdued in the taste.  The roasted malts dominate the palate.  There's lots of flavor, just a bit all over the map though.

M: Medium bodied, medium to high bitterness, light to medium carbonation.

D: Maybe I don't understand this style of beer.  When I'm drinking a beer, I either want it hoppy or I want it toasty and malty, not both.  With that said, this beer doesn't taste bad, it's just not what I look for in beer.
