2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

(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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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!
