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.

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.

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 (1259) - 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.

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 (5541) - 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 (5360) - 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 (2186) - 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.
