COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 19 is derived from a recipe found in an old logbook discovered in brewery archives dating back before 1919, when Prohibition banned beer throughout the country. Prohibition was enforced in Colorado in 1916. The pre-Prohibition style lager delivers a bold, hoppy flavor that is surprisingly well balanced. Test market in Chicago, Milwaukee, San Francisco, San Jose, and Washington DC.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a clear pale color. Not much head. Aroma is sweet malts. Actually smells like a lot of other macros. First taste is ok, not much going on. But has a bad aftertaste. I wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
20oz on tap for $3 at Sugarbush Tavern in Chesterfield Twp., Michigan. Appearance: Came a pretty nice brownish color with a decent head. There was minimal lacing, and there was virtually none by the time I hit the bottom. Smell: A corny, malty, adjunct smell, but MUCH better than what Iím used to from the style. Taste/feel: Well above anything else Iíve had from the style. Thereís some of that adjunct in the flavor, but the malt is much more pleasant than what Iím used to. The feel is also nice, as itís smooth and easy drinking. At 5.5% ABV and without any offensive flavors or smells, this is a VERY good choice if you have the option ... especially for the price. Far and away the best of the style.

Clear amber color. Thin head. Little discernible aroma. Surprisingly smooth and descent tasting for Coors. Slightly hoppy. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An Amber lager by Coors? very surprized at the taste and Nutty aroma, not a Coors fan but really like Batch 19

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle (odd shape). with a best before of May 27 2013. Pours with a clear, dark (very dark) golden hue, not quite orange or bronze, but a very burnt yellow, medium sized white head. Aromas are extremely clean. Only a malt presence, bready, biscuity, corn, toast. Nothing else. Nothing offensive at all, as much as ones searches, just a boring, malty medium dark lager. Very, very clean. Medium sweet biscuit, cheap malt, corn, biscuit, low butter. Very clean, but rounded. Honestly, boring, but technically very sound. A bit too sweet for my tastes. Mild bitterness, slightly supportive, but a malty balance. In no way undrinkable. Overall, very tea like and malty sweet, with no hops. Its really not a bad beer, just boring and bland. Its Coors, and it is better than most of their products, but nothing new. They can brew a good beer, and this might be it. It is what it is: a very clean, precise and mediocre lager.

Draught at Riviera crappy pub. Caramel and slightly sweet. Not nearly as bad as I would have thought. Drinkable.

Ericular (832) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours clear pale orange with decent head and OK lacing. Aroma is lots of sweet malts and apple. Taste is apple, corn, sweet malts, very light bitterness in the end, and then a terrible (but thankfully short-lived) corny adjunct aftertaste. Not offensive, and goes down easy - but nothing to ever come back for.

finn1918 (231) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Alpharetta. Wanted to try the two "semi-craft" offerings from Coors. Pours a crystal clear amber with a 2-finger of-white head and remarkably large soda-like bubbles rising to the top, like this was force-carbonated like a Coke. Huge whiff of hops when the head rises up, and hops are present after. Very nice. Taste is somewhere between a Sam Adams boston lager and a Coors. Watery with corn, but some tasty malts peeping through. Very low bitterness, but the hops are there. Very close to Kilianís here. Palate is typical for a pale lager: light, refreshing, watery. This is a good lager and I wish that all BMC products were like this, but one is enough for me.

Tap. Dark amber-brown with a small beige head. Light bodied. Really flavorful and drinkable for one of the big guys. I wasnít sure, but I had strong suspicions since I bought it at a stadium. If only the more abundant macros to have survived prohibition were more like this...what a shame; this was a pleasant surprise.

Didnít realize it was a Coors product while I was drinking it. Very very good flavor. Only complaint is that itís on the watery side.
