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.

Bottle pour to shaker. Medium copper color with medium head. Slightly bready and slightly sweet . . . a cut above the typical mass produced American lager.

Coors Batch 19 has a medium, foamy, off-white head, some thin lacing left on the glass, and a clear, bubbly, amber appearance. The aroma is of citrusy hops, sweet brown bread, and mildly-roasted malt. Taste is of sugar, sweet brown bread, roasted barley malt, and a pleasant, pronounced hop bitterness throughout the middle-to-end of the sip. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Coors Batch 19 finishes dry, refreshing, and pleasant. Overall, this is a fantastic, delicious, and eminently drinkable beer. I rate it most excellent. RJT

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2013
This was surprisingly...not terrible? Clean and crisp, more full bodied than I expected (benefiting from lowered expectations), and decent flavors. Grassy hops finish.

kramer (4687) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear bright copper body with a small fizzy white head that retained pretty well. The nose is fairly bland, corn sweetness, light toasted and caramel maltiness. The flavor is much the same, corn syrup sweetness and little to no bitterness. Taste like a stab at Yuengling Lager to me. Light to medium bodied with some clingy stickiness. Not bad, just a stand in for Yuengling. I’d rather keep supporting the local guy.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours a light, old gold with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Aroma has a decent malt presence, a little toast, cereal, hay and light seedy nut notes, some floral and grassy hops. Flavor starts off with some nice cereal and toasty malt notes, but takes on a somewhat metallic, mineral taste after that that never goes away, some light tree fruit, more seedy notes, and sweet floral and planty notes come in later. Light body, with a slightly slick and oily entry, light, but very sharp carbonation and dry, but still slightly oily finish. Not good, but ok for a Pale Lager.

Lager glass. Deep gold with decent head and lacing. Smell of barley and wheat. Good tasting beer, I had no idea it was brewed by Coors.

scooterbub (792) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice darker gold with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of malt, grain, barley, grass and some hops. Similar aroma. Has a mostly full body with a slightly dry and bitter finish. An excellent lager and one well worth having agai

Bottle - I had no idea this was a Coors brewed beer. Pour is a dark, clear amber. There's not a ton on the nose but there's some malt I can pick up. The palate is light but it has a hoppiness to it that I wasn't expecting from a Coors offering. Overall pretty stable beer. Not noticing a huge standout taste but an alright beer overall. -optemoz

sloth (2400) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Cute white head that lasted longer than expected. Clear, amber orange color. Nice appearence to start. Nose is grainy, lil bready, mild. Body is bordering on the medium, surprise! Decent carbonation. Clean malts, lil toasty, bready with an ever so slight hop spiceyness. Tame but actually with some flavor. Surprisingly dry malts, lil grass. Dry finish is toasty, grainy, enjoyable. Nice, easy quaffin lager. Surprised. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Tasted this for the first time during the brewery tour in Golden last summer. A great tasting, easy drinking lager. I usually avoid beers made by the major brewers, but Batch 19 has been a regular in my fridge ever since it became available in the Twin Cities this fall. Check it out.
