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. Notes of cearel malts, caramel, lager yeast and a touch of aroma hops. Medium amber hue with an average white head. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall another solid brew from Coors. I really liked the history and the brew is very easy drinking. It didn’t knock my socks off but I did enjoy it.

Bottle - Deep golden pour with a thin white head. Nose is gentle floral/herbal hopping and mellow graininess, though fairly dry. Though the nose is promising, the taste is off. It’s kind of soured light pale malt, with some odd astringency and bitterness on the finish. Overly carbonated and fluffy, which detracts a bit from the taste. Not terrible, which was surprising, but the taste ruins what looked to be a promising beer.

Reminds me of a low quality magic hat #9, dry lingering after taste that isn’t very pleasant, but the initial flavor is a bit fruity and ok

I think back to the Summer of 1988 when I drank way too much Coors Henry Joseph’s beer. I really liked that beer but have no recollection of how it actually tasted. Could Batch 19 be in the same vein as HJ’s? Not sure, but this beer has more flavor than Banquet Beer. Dark golden medium body, light bitterness and malt balance. Not as sweet as a Yuengling Lager but a very similar brew.

Pours an amber gold with a large white head. Nose is malt. Nice and creamy on the palate with plenty of carbonation. Taste is flavorful. Malt flavor is most pronounced but also a pleasant hops flavor, not bitter, only crisp and dry. This recipe was a very good find for Coors as it’s a fine beer. Try it with sardines on crackers.

Onslow (1102) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Light amber brew with creamy off white head. Aroma of corn, grass, hay, metal. Taste is decent malt at the start and a rather harsh grassy hops finish. Taste is very much in the back though there is a decent malt at the start. A pretty decent brew.

coolpop (1367) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Draft. Poured light amber with a medium-sized off white head. Aroma and flavor are lightly malty, some caramel, quite grainy, lots of metal, mildy hoppy. Better, I suppose, than Coors, but why would I drink this regularly?

This is not bad. Definitely better than today’s Coors. Really proves that the years between the 21st amendment and the dawn of the craft beer revolution were the Dark Ages of American beer.

dpjuart (1034) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours clear, effervescent copper with rimming white head. Nose of corn, grass and butter. Bread and herbs, some grass and a mile bitter, lingering into the after. I’m surprisingly surprised at the potentially solid lager this is. Drinkable. Should start selling this as Coors Light.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a pale yellow color with a corn aroma. Not very hoppy as advertised, it was an unassuming beer. If I had know it was made by Coors I would of expected less.
