Coronado El Chingon Hoppy Lager
While in San Diego, my friends and I stopped in to Coronado Brewing Company. The first beer I ordered was the El Chingon Hoppy Lager. The beer pours a golden color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of lots of lemon and pine. The taste is smooth with malts before lemon seeds, pine, and orange come out to play on the tongue. The alcohol content is not available online but I would guess it to be around 5.5%ABV. The El Chingon was an amazing take on a lager and was also very refreshing. It's not too often you run into a very hoppy lager, but if you get the chance to find this beer, I would recommend picking it up, especially in the warmer months.
