NOTE: Coronado Brewing Company's name for this pilsner is "Coronado Golden" (minus the "Pilsner") but there is already another entry with that name (and from this brewer) for an American blonde ale with a 5.4% abv--this is a different beer altogether.

A: Strong effervesce within a lemon peel colored body that showed light hints of orange. A frumpy, eggshell white head sits one inch and maintains to a lengthy degree. Heavy thick saturn like ring for lace.

S: Sour lemon funk, light grainy pilsner scent, semi-dry bread.

T: Flavor showed a touch of lemon funk, fairly crisp, with some musky pilsner grains. Lemony twang, big and bold, with some bready character.

M: Light creamy body, turns frothy with a high rate of carbonation.

O: Overall a pretty big and bold sour lemony twang, a bit much for sessionability. Yeasty, musky, more american blonde then czech pilsner. Lacks that high degree of saaz hops, not as clean as traditional german styles.

Clear yellow under a solid pure-white head that leaves some chunky lace behind. Sweet cereal grain, spicy hops, and dough. Mild, clean pils flavor...lemon and spicy, leafy Saaz hops. Medium-light body, fluffy mouthfeel, dryish. Not bad, nothing particularly memorable, but a solid, easy-going beer to start my Xmas drinking.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a semi-hazy light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thin jagged ring behind.

S- Sweet, bready malt with a hint of hops.

T- Pretty standard Czech Pilsner flavor with the Saaz hops providing a mild bitterness and some moderate earthy and spicy flavors.

M- Somewhat crisp with medium carbonation and a lightish body. Another reviewer said it smells like Cheerios or Corn Pops and they're spot on.

O- I'm not loving it but I'm also not hating it like I usually do with Czech Pilsners. The Saaz hops are usually the culprit but, with this, they're kept at bay.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: 0.5L glass (16.9 oz.)
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.79
Purchased: Oct. 22, 2014
Consumed: Oct. 23, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a yellow, golden, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy white head. Good-looking streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal spotty lacing on the way down. Below average retention. (Sight - 3.63)

Smelled Cheerios cereal, light Corn Pops or Kix cereal, corn, sourdough bread, hay, biscuit, shortbread cookies, grassy malts, honey and Roman Catholic bread (the body of Christ). (Smell - 3.63)

Tasted pretty close to the nose, which was pretty just above average. Got sourdough bread, cereal (Cheerios, Kix and Corn Pops), hay, grassy malts, shortbread cookies, honey wheat, corn on the cob and light caramel. (Taste - 3.63)

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Crisp, somewhat refreshing, abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.75)

A pretty decent pilsner, but nothing to write home about. Glad I got to try it though. (Overall - 3.63)

Looks like beer, smells like a bowl of corn flakes.

Nice Pilsner flavor, nothing too unique or noteworthy, though it does have a pleasant little citrus tang on the back end. It is a bit on the light side, and it goes down easy.

I keep a sixer around because it's a nice, simple beer that everyone from the Bud and Coors crowd to the hardcore enthusiasts will like.
