Aroma is stronger than the pale colour would lead one to expect. Flavour is nicely balanced but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light hay color, forming decent white head of foam. Aroma of bready, floral, toasty, with a very light hint of caramel. Flavour is a tad hoppy but pretty refreshing especially with its pilsner taste medium mouthfeel with light carbonation. Somewhat refreshing.

"a pilsner masqerading as an ale? that pretty much seems to be what they were going for here. light and refreshing. maybe a little too light bodied, and the aroma is weak. Everything there is pleasant (some grassy hops and lightly sweet fruity malts), just underdone. *lost review from August 2012"

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
September 9th, 2012 - Coronado Brewery is one short breathtaking drive away across the Coronado Bridge, and on an island layered with luxury, beauty and finesse. After a short circuit around the island and the requisite ogling at the Hotel Del Coronado, me and my day adventure buddy glided over to Coronado Brewery to fill up on beer. First up on the tasting paddle was Coronado’s Golden, a light, crisp golden ale that brings a lot of pilsener quality to the drinking experience. Crystal malt, lemon, popcorn and fresh cotton constitute the aroma, which itself is probably a product of whatever native Californian yeast they proudly announced was behind the bubbly manufacture of this brew. The palate is sudsy and cleansing - good after a day at the beach - with notes of baked bread, and a long aftertaste of unbuttered, dusty popcorn. It’s dry and refreshing, with a crisp pilsener like edge that can revitalize a dry mouth after a day galavanting around Coronado Island.

Tap on the island. Pour gold (shocking) with sparse head. Aroma is honey, light floral hops. Taste is similar, nothing standout about this but its very drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Coronado’s Mainland Tasting Room. Clear golden pour with a white head. Smells of apple juice, sugar, and grass. Light floral hops, straw, and water. Flavor is just sweet and bland. Very light grassy/straw bitterness. Big on apple juice, cider, and water. Sad face.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[ Tap ][ Coronado ][ 5oz ][ Taster ][ $2 ][ 2/1/14 ]
>> Clear golden pour with weak white foam. Nose is squashy, grassy hoppy with honeydew. Taste is yellow apple, squashy hops, somewhat pils like with grassy hop bite. Palate is thin without a real hop finale. Could really be something here but fails to deliver.
