The Search for Oregon Summer Beers:

I've been searching for the perfect "summer beer" here in Eugene, OR. Maybe I'm searching for a replacement for Bell's Oberon. Maybe I'm searching for something new. In any case, I have found a front-runner in Deschutes' Twilight Ale.

The beer poured out a nice orangey-golden color with a thin long-lasting golden colored, flimy head. Very effervescent and some lacing. The smell isn't strong or complex - the most I can smell is a hint of mild yeast smell. However, the taste was surprisingly much stronger and more complex, with a blend of hops and citrus. Very drinkable, especially when it's cold - a great Summer Beer candidate for a hot Oregon day.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pale orange copper with a decent head and plenty of lacing. Noticeable carbonation.

Smell: Orange, bready malts.

Taste: Orange, pine, grapefruit, caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, crisp, with a mild hop bitterness in the finish.

The Verdict: Good beer. Well balanced, and it has a nice orange zest without beating you over the head with bitterness. Another winner from Deschutes.

The beer poured nicely with good carbonation. It was clear, although I swear the bottle said it was bottle conditioned. The smell was mild, which I was expecting with it geared towards a summer session beer. The taste was pleasantly mild, following the smell. I could taste slight hints of citrus, but again it was quite mild. I thought it would be a good introduction beer for newbies, but my friend was not too fond of it. Overall it's a good beer for summer barbecue sessions
