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.

Tallahassee, Fl - Miller’s Ale House - on tap. Sparkling medium golden pour, sticky white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is pretty much neutral, a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor has some honey sweetness, a bit of nuttiness, some brief citrus bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. Better than expected.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2013 I am rerating this beer since my initial tasting in January 2013. I had a bottle last night and the hop oil aroma jumped out at me. I had not noticed that before, so it may have been reformulated. The amber color is pleasant, but the hop oil aroma is too intense for the low bitterness. All in all a decent product from Coors, but certainly not pre-prohibition style. The use of caramel malts and hop oil screams modern microbeer. Coors light drinkers do not like this product at all (which is no surprise), but I do not think that microbrew drinkers will like it either as it is too middle of the road. What is interesting is the fact that the major brewers are now trying to break into the craft beer scene. Who would have thought just 20 years ago that they would ever make anything besides cheap, watered down, bland lagers?

Deep golden color out of the tap. Sticky khakhi colored head. Sweet malt syrup nose. Fllavors of burnt caramel, malt syrup, some corn, and an odd grassy bitterness in. the finish. Not very interesting.

Pours golden with an off white head. Aroma is sweet . Flavor is probably like a real Coors should be little sweet malt and a bit of hoppiness in the finish.

Bottle. A medium copper colored body with a light white head. The nose has some malty hay. There is also a bite of dusty raw barley. The taste is fairly bitter old dusty books with raw grains. There is a bread crust finish along with notes of celery and raw potato. This is decent and overall dry. Actually, this is enjoyable to drink.
