3.68/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - One finger of fizzy/creamy head sits on the light clear orange body. Streaky lacing around the glass.

S - Nice fruity hop aroma of grapefruit and ripe peach.

T - Mostly orange and lemon flavours. Reasonably hoppy and bitter with the prominent Amarillo hops.

M - Moderate and creamy bodied. Crisp also.

O - Nice session beer that I would be happy to throw down at any time of year.

3.73/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - fairly hazy golden, thumb of soapy head held its own
S - strong citrus and floral aromas, light herbals with some fresh biscuit
T - strong citrus and grassy hops, grainy and slightly mineral like finish
M - light with strong carbonation kick, becomes very dry with a teeth coating feel
O - a definite summer brew with bright hop flavours and big carbonation, the dry factor would suggest having another on a hot day

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

Clear golden colour with a small, short-lasted, white head. No lacing.

Light, malty aroma with a hint of floral hops. Okay.

Crisp, pale malt with some nice bitterness. A touch earthy. Interesting.

Medium-light body with moderate carbonation.

A light, crisp summer ale. Very good and refreshing.

Serving type: on-tap

3.55/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Nice orange color, crystal clear, with a nice cap of bright white foam. Somewhat bready on the nose, with just a bit of fruity hops. Nicely balanced on the palate, with good sweet malt balanced nicely against the mild hops. Drinkable, especially nice on a warm, spring Saturday afternoon.

Serving type: on-tap

3.58/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

pours a nice light caramel golden hue with a bright white thick two-finger head with good retention and ample lace.

aroma is subdued but approachable, with a nice malt backbone, pleasant earthy hops with a balanced floral and citrusy hop nose.

taste is nicely malty, with some bready, doughy malt, followed by a fairly potent hop kick. lemon and calamansi. hoppy for what i am expecting, but still delicious.

mouth is clean, crisp and refrehing. but seriously, it is. ample carbonation, smooth bitterness, just all around solid.

a great summer brew, twilight never fails to hit the spot. as with most deschutes (and most pnw breweries) it's definitely on the hoppy side, but that's not a bad thing.

4.03/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle to pint.

A: Light orange, thin head, and minimal lacing.

S: Orange, sweet cream, malt, and lots of floral notes. Smell is quite sweet.

T: Sweet malt, dariy, with lots of floral taste that takes a bitter turn, lingering bitter finish.

M: Medium to light body, medium to high carbination. nice dry finish.

O: I would have to say my least favorite of the Deschutes seasonals. That being said I think that red chair and jubelale are outstanding beers. So the twilight is certianly worth your time and money, a very nice summer beer.
