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.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a 2 finger fluffy white head that leaves splotchy lacing. The nose is malt and earthy hops. The taste is sweet malt, light fruit and even lighter hops. Light-to-medium body. Easy drinker but pretty boring, even for the style.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Pours golden with a tall head that recedes rather quickly leaving behind a lingering creamy ring and an island in the middle. Aromas of biscuits and a brisk grainy essence seeps forward. Medium nectar with ample residual effers. The texture is slightly creamy. Flavorwise this brew is rather subtle. It has a nice biscuit essence to follow the nose sprinkled with brisk acidity with defined hop bittering on the finish. A flavorful ale the good attributes.

Dorwart (2392) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Large bright white head of varying sized bubbles. Good carbonation. Light apple and pear aromas with some grains and sweet malts. Color is a clear medium gold. Light crisp flavor. Very lively in the mouth with some cereal grains, light malts, some lemon grass and light bitter hops. Nice hops presence yet light and refreshing. Finishes slightly bitter and dry with some lingering lemon and spices. A decent summer brew.

DSG (6351) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 24, 2009
(11/5/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Coronado. Clear golden. Aroma malt, bready notes and a bit of slightly grassy hops. Flavor starts sweetish and bready and continues hoppy and quite bitter with light earthy hints. Medium-bodied.

bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Pours a clear golden hue with a super foamy white head. Light, sweet malty nose with decent grainy notes. Mild palate with sweet malt/grain and a subtle hoppy dry, slightly bitter finish. Easy drinking and pleasant. Nothing spectacular, but something to enjoy after a long day in the sun.

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle available in the Sweet Suite at Petco Park. 12 bottles of coors light and only 6 of these?? Dang what to have. So I chose this. It was ok. Nothing special. Enjoyable in the sense it was beer, I was at a baseball game living the good life in a Suite. Moved on to Jack Daniels shortly after this. Yeah!

hopscotch (9554) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Draft… RBSG ’08… Clear, light yellow ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is so subtle; I’m unable to pull much from it. Light-bodied and spritzy. The flavor is mostly nondescript, but does lean barely on the bitter side of balance. Short, crisp, clean finish. Innofensive, mild, refreshing beer.

shadowaeb (17) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Drinkable, but not something I would buy again. A crisp looking golden colored beer with rapidly receeding white head. Corny, malty aroma with a lightly hopped and slight malt flavor. Aftertaste is metallic and bitter.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On tap, all over the place. I understand this is not a beer nerds dream beer style, but I like it. It’s got a nice hop bite, clean refreshing.

FYI - Coronado Brewing Company doesn’t do a sampler, and although they still have the little sample glasses displayed at the bar it was like pulling teeth to get them to let us freaking try the beer in sample size! I mean - when you’re driving you can’t exactly have a pint of every beer a brewpub has to offer... ANYWAY - the point is our waitress was a b-word, but the bartender finally relented and sold us three tiny glasses for the price of one pint.. the moral to this story is that all of their beer was well below average and wasn’t even worth the fight to try them. Don’t go here!
