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.

The bottle is pretty cool, but the beer is mediocre. For some reason, I am getting a hint of beef jerky when I drink it. Not bad but not preferred. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Flavor is very reminiscent of the old Miller Lowenbrau. Dark golden in color. Taste is pleasant malty and balanced. Aroma is light and slightly sweet.

Much more hoppy and full flavored than colors. A richer aroma and flavor makes this a more hearty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle- Pours clear dark golden with a thin white head that reduces immediately to a thin collar. Aroma is somewhat spicy actually, peppercorns, but everything else is very bland and boring. Taste is mellow, moderate malt and hops, creamy, drinkable, but kind of boring. Body is thin and carbonation is medium high. Overall I was more impressed than I thought I would be, but is still very unimpressive.

Pours deep gold with a white head with streaky lacing. Nose is hops with slight malt. Palate is medium light body with slight malt sweetness and a dominant hoppy resinous bitterness. It is a simple straightforward American Premiuim Lager with little complexity. An unpasteurized macro - nice.

I had a sample of Batch 19 at the local BWW’s. It was alright. OK flavor. I would be able to drink it but I’m not running out to pick up a 6 pack anytime soon.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle from the 76 station in Davis, CA. Pours a clear golden color with the aroma of corn and grain. Seems like another run of the mill "premium lager". Sweet malty flavor with a hint of corn. Probably won’t drink again.

On tap at Kelly’s. Beer reps were there and gave it to me for free so who am I to complain? Corny, grainy aroma. Moderately sweet.

I decided to try this one out. Cool looking label and I wanted to try the pre-prohibition recipe. Wonderful, imho. Has the full flavor of Sam Adams Boston Lager, yet the finish is a tad bit cleaner. A good session brew. I ended up purchasing another six-pack the following week. Very satisfying and the abv is just right. Thank you, Coors!
