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.

Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 2/17/13

Aroma: The nose has some pale malts, a little cereal/bread, and some grassy notes
Appearance: This one pours a dark golden color with a small white head and some streaky lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, with some malty lager sweetness and a little clean grassy hop
Palate: The body is fairly light, though not as watery as one might expect, with some lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This one actually exceeded my expectation. Shockingly, Coors but some actual hop in here, not the "triple hops" of a certain company mate’s Lite Beer, but actual, noticeable hops! That surprised me, that’s for sure. Anyway, it still isn’t a great beer by any means, but it also doesn’t taste like ice cold nothing like some of their other products. Seriously though, it is kind of sad that this 90+ year old recipe they "found" is more passable then anything they’ve developed since then...

Ah, a nother wimpy Coors brew... this one pours an orangey golden hued brew with a tall, rapidly diminishing white head of foam and a malty aroma. Tastewise, yes, this brew has more body and presence than normal Ccoors, but what doesn’t? It’s a passable beer, but not one I’ll purchase again.

mansquito (3354) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2013
El Fogon, NY 12oz ($3): Pour is gold, head is white. Aroma is grey with a hint of hops. Taste is grainy, with barely any hops. There are certainly no offensive tastes in this beer, but there are remarkably few good ones in it to make this properly worth drinking. Quite meh. Better than Coors normal fo sho though.

Bottled. Brown red orange pour white head. Not much nose. Some clean caramel malts and light hops. Ok , can be drunk en masse. Like a dumbed down Brooklyn lager.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet and malty...straw an faint grass. Flavor has sweet straw and corn with very mild grass. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is straw/grass and a bit dry.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2013
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.

madvike (2712) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2013
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.
