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.

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 (2031) - 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.

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.

Draft at the brewery. This one pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with a small, white head of foam that leaves thin lines of lace around the glass. The aroma shows notes of citrus fruit, floral and citrus hops, and a light toffee malt on the back end. Th flavor is straight forward showing the citrus fruit, oranges, and floral hop bitterness. The toffee malt balances things out well. Medium to light bodied with good carbonation. Easy drinking, but nothing too crazy in the flavor.

On tap at Coronado Brewing Co. Yellow color. Creamy corn flavor. Tight creamy white head. No bitterness. Easy to drink. Leans bland, but not bad.

I think a 20 rating is a little harsh for this beer but i guess thats just where it falls. I thought that the crispness was very good and the high hops were just enough to make it palatable and very good. Nice spice and flavor but very low aroma.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Grassy with herbal notes, a bit of saaz hops, dry grain and a sweet fruit like character. A decent golden ale.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Market Street Wine Shop, Uptown, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a thin fizzy head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter grassy hops. Taste is bitter grassy hops, caramel and light fruity notes. Medium bodied. Refreshing but fairly boring.
