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.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2004 Bottled. Clear golden. Sweet and appley. Rounded and honeyish with slightly salty finish. Too sweet to be refreshing.

Small head thats a bit foamy. I wouldnt say this was pure golden in color but more of a murky yellow/orange(maybe i got a old boittle?) Has a apple sauce taste with bready malt and a bitter palate. I never heard of this beer until today and i see Coranado every day from work. Gonna have to visit the restaurant.

I dunno what’s going on with this stuff but I agree with SDbruboy about this tasting sour. Other than that, not very good. Too light in body and not much flavor. A waste.

On tap at restaurant. (I do have to start by saying that the first pour I had of the beer from the "lobby bar" tasted soured. I took it to the main bar and asked for a taste from their keg and lines. This one was much better, but still I lost confidence in the quality of the pours and line maintenance from this establishment.) Pours clear golden with a small white head that diminished rapidly. Mild hoppy nose, slight sweet malt opening, tart and bitter flavors in the middle and finish. Light body and lively carbonation. Almost lager like in feel and flavors, okay but not great.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2004 (22 oz bottle) Run of the mill golden ale, but while most offerings from Coronado Brewing are sugary sweet, the sweetness seems somewhat under control in this offering and it doesn't seem so disgustingly sugary; It's moderately sweet, with a light, grainy maltiness, slightly spicy, somewhat citrusy, and mildly hoppy; Unfortunately, as the beer warms up from fridge temperature, it becomes a little sugary sweet and thin; The grainy nose is sweeter than the flavor, and is accompanied by a very mild aroma of hops; Light to medium bodied palate and fairly clean until it warms up; Pale yellow in color and fairly hazy; Off-white head is on the small size during the pour, and fades to almost nothing quite soon; No lacing to speak of; Not bad, easy to drink, but not something I'd buy again

Golden color with a small white head. Smells and tastes like a beginner’s homebrew. Not much flavor except for the slight oxidation. I would rather drink a Macro than this.

Golden hue with a bone white head. Slightly clingy. Light, sweet malty nose with a somewhat grainy tones. Mild palate with sweet malt/grain and a subtle hoppy dry and bitter finish. Easy drinking and pleasant. Nothing spectacular, but something to enjoy with some friends.

Dark yellow gold color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is malty, fruity and fairly sweet. A medium bodied golden ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are very mild, slightly bitter. Kind of sweet. Mild flavors, but there is a slight hop bite at the very finish. Light and refreshing. It is a nice golden ale; light and mild, smooth taste, slightly sweet and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
