Twilight Ale is Deschutes Brewery‘s summer seasonal, one that is a locals’ favorite that everybody seems to be drinking when it comes out. It’s a nice, light, drinkable 5% alcohol brew that is, according to their website, "best enjoyed when chilled and consumed outdoors." I’ll drink to that.
Appearance: Pale gold, a honey color. Not completely clear—a bit hazy.
Smell: Clean hops and toasty biscuit grain. Very clean… hops are a tiny bit spicy.
Taste: Nice bitter hop that isn’t overwhelming; it frames a brisk toasty malt. Overall very clean, fairly light, a nice warm weather session beer. A bit of wheat?
Mouthfeel: Almost medium-bodied, more than you’d expect for a light summer ale. Nice quenching character here.
Overall: Another Deschutes winner.
