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.

Kind of a cloudy golden color with some good spices. Taste is pretty dry like a pilsener. Really, I liked this much more than their Red and was pretty pleased overall with 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.

Clean delicate hop nose. Decent palate with generouse amounts of malt, bread, vannila, and hop flowers tied together with a littledry bitterness and a long light floral finish.

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.

on tap at the hotel del coronado pours a clear amber hue with a small white head that is mostly diminishing aroma of aged wood, yeast and barley flavor is crisp, a tad hoppy but pretty refreshing especially with its pilsner taste medium mouthfeel with light carbonation definitely not as bad as i thought it was going to be

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2004 Rerate from bottle (06/26/04): From the bottle, this beer was a bit more impressive to me. I picked up a more interesting hop profile, especially on the finish. I definetely think this deserves higher than a 2.9 from me. (Original Rating): A very "typical" american style beer. Pale amber color with a very small head. Aroma and flavor is yeasty and metallic. Body is thin and finish is dry and short.

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.

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.
