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.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2013 On tap. Pours with a very slightly hazed golden yellow body with a thick and creamy white head. Aromas are bready, floral, toasty, with a very light hint of caramel. Slightly soggy malt, and some minerality. Medium esters and a hint of honey. Flavors are bready, decently bitter, grainy, toasty. Mild diacetyl. Straw, slightly sweet. Medium to lively bubbles, a bit thin.
Golden Pils (with Ale yeast), according to the bottle: WHY would they label it that way? Pours with a pale yellow hued body. Clear, small white head. Aromas are grainy, a bit fruity with light sulfur. Flavors are fruity, very grainy, straw. Lively bubbles, dry and crisp. Way too fruity to be a pilsner though!

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Tap at Eureka! Rating #83. Clear golden pour with a decent white head that left some nice lacing. Light hoppy aroma a little biscuity. Big hop flavor, real nice balance between bitter and the malts, nice beer. (1785)

On tap at the brewpub. Nice grain profile gives this a lot more flavor than I was expecting. A touch of peppery herbs and spice. Nice gateway beer for these guys with a much bigger presence for a beer of this style.

Draft. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw, leading to a lightly bitter finish. Goes down easily.

keepersj12 (2664) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Surprisingly boozy aroma from a crystal clear light amber. Not a lot of head with just a small layer towards the end of the glass. Citrus flavor and nicely bitter. Clean and crisp finish. Not bad.

Capa (1970) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 16, 2010
Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma has slight grains and a little in the way of hops. Crisp flavor that washed brunch down quite well. Not a flavor powerhouse but clean and easy to drink. I enjoyed it.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle. This was an interesting beer. Definitely Golden Ale in the aroma and the finish, but much of the flavor smacked of fruit beer. Poured a clear, yellow-gold with a minimal white head. Sweet, malty aroma with honey and citrus notes. Flavor is mildly sweet, and immediately I got notes of black raspberry, then some apricot and lemon, and just the faintest of hops to end things. Finish also included some honey and malty sweetness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Really a good beer. Very enjoyable.

Bottle from Smith’s. Gold pour with white head. Nose is pale malt, mild honey-dipped apricot, hopcitrus. Tastes bready pale malty, semi-sweet, with a medium palate, and late fruit and hops.
