Bottle. Pours a light cold with copper hue. Aroma is a very light malt/fruit/hop mixture. Taste is very slight malt upfront with a bitter hop behind it. Somewhat interesting for a Macro offering.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is pretty simple: malty and slightly soapy hops. The appearance is golden with a small head for the style. The taste is like the aroma with sweetness up front and astringent hops in the back. The palate is typical. Overall drinkable but not outstanding, still a good attempt by a macro.

Batch 19 neatly occupies a space between typical American macros and the hop heavy craft beers that have sprung up like wildfire in the last several years. Its aroma is true to the flavor-somewhat neutral with a noticeable but not at all overbearing slightly sweet hoppy character. It pours darker golden if not light copper with a cheap lager lacing and carbonation. This beer is fairly middle of the road, but never offensive to the palate, lighter than say Heineken, but more substantial than Bud.

Tap. Clear light copper pour with white head. Not very good honestly...at all. Blah blah blah.

bottle. light amber with small head. Solid crap-market beer. Not bad for what it is, but not exactly an outstanding beer either.

Pours a yellow-orange. Smells fruity. Made by Coors so it has a similar flavor but with a little fruity taste attached.

Well I’ll go ahead and admit that I was expecting this to be awful. Well, it’s not awful but it’s nothing great either. Some of these other projects the macros have been experimenting with have been flat out repulsive compared to this. I could actually see myself killing alot of these on any given night, too bad this isn’t what they brew instead of coors banquet or anything of the sort.

Bottle gift from SJ. Probably the best Coors beer. Still thin, but some actual hop and sweet malt detected. I would never purchase it, but it wasn’t terrible.

Thanks Ian! Clear burnt orange fluffy white head visible bubbles. Aroma of cracker grains and light hops. Sweet malt cracker and dry bitter hops. Good macro offering.

Bottle looks like one of Trojan’s more interesting models. Clear, darkish gold. Muted, slightly sweet, slightly cidery, cereal malt aroma. Pleasant, crisp, refreshing, a little herbal hop, pleasing bitter. Biscuity-dry. Effervescent, starchy body, long aftertaste where the bittering hops wear out their welcome. ABC, Betton.
