COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2005
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.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - MAY 24, 2005
its a little bit corny and a little bit rock and gold....thats what they were saying anyway. poured golden tan clear with off white head. no real nose, slight malt character. slight malt crack sweetness to the palate and maybe some spicy hops kicking the backe door. thin and uninteresting. probably the way they want it.
