This golden colored ale is smooth, light in flavor, and still retains a slight crispness in its finish, very similar to a European-style pilsner. Our Coronado Golden is delicately hopped with Czechoslovakian Saaz hops, traditionally used in making the classic pilsner. It is our most popular beer at our restaurant and considered our gateway beer into the micro-brew world.

Kind of a cloudy golden color with some good spices. Taste is pretty dry like a pilsener. Really, I liked this much more than their Red and was pretty pleased overall with it.

Bottle fro BevMo La Mesa. Pours a clear Golden color. Dry malty aroma. Flavor is some cardboard flavor. Not a very strong effort.

DRAFT Very fair local that has decent bite. Very similar to IPAs of similar ilk. No head, and little flavor outside of the bite. A very fair option for a San Diego local.

Bought this 22oz bottle at BevMo in Mission Valley, CA. Pours a clear golden color with a bubbly white head. Grassy malt aroma. A hint of bitterness. Dry taste. Nothing special. Some maltiness as well.

Keg. Clear gold with a bubbly head. Aroma is bitter grain and metal. Flavor is okay. Some dry malt with the grassy flavors, but ends with the metallic bite. Good enough, but nothing special.

On tap at CBC - Golden color with light head. Vey light grain aroma. Very little malt flavor. Beer leans toward the bitter side. I’m was a little disappointed. I talked with the brewer and he said they are using only dry yeast in all their beers at this time. That could explain the lack of real flavor in most of their beers.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Draft at brewery in Coronado, CA: Clear gold, island of head, no lacing. Nose of husky pale malt and metallic hops. The flavor is fairly bad with a dry bitter mouthfeel and tinny finish. Not a good start.

Aroma is light, sweet with a hint of grass. Cloudy peach color with a small eggshell white head. Flavor is lightly fruity, a little grainy with some light hop spicyness in the finish. Thin, crisp, clean palate. A nice light session brew.

Yellow to orange with an average clean white head with an interestering bubble action. Aroma is a sweet malt and something that pust off a residual honey sweetness. Aroma gives the indication that malt flavor might be fuller feeling and the first sip confirms that there is decent body and malt character. Clean and crisp in flavor, sweet malt is the base and a tangy sharp light fruited kick finishes with the faintest hop character. Fairly smooth and drinkable. Brought back from San Diego by my girlfirend.

Small foamy white head, golden yellow color. Some graininess in the aroma. Slightly malty, with a sweet twang and a grassy slightly herbal hop presence, particularly in the finish.. Mouthfeel is light and crisp.
