look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Yellow-gold, average head. Smells more piney than it tastes. Citric hops are present, pretty mellow (which I noticed when comparing with alternating sips of a pale), but balanced with sweet malts that don't cling with plenty of carbonation for a nice summer beer. Nothing special, but an easy summer drinker.

Twilight Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery, my first by these guys. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 1.5 finger thick light tan head, clear golden body, and awesome lacing.

I smell lighter malts, not a whole lot of hop profundity. A little bit of earthiness is present here, too.

Just a very slight bit of sweet malt before an even lighter hop taste. But this brew doesn't skimp on flavor. Just the right balance of body and lightness.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. These guys did an awesome job with this ultra quenching consistency!

Overall an outstanding 4 Twilight Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery. This is one of the best seasonal summer brews I've experienced! I will buy this brew again.
