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.

Golden yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is cereal grains as is the taste. A little hops and some what of a crisp aftertaste. Worth the price- sampled at the local grocery store.

Not bad at all for a Coors attempt to infiltrate micro beer market very light in body and taste but the citrus notes make this beer quite palatable

Tap- head retention not there.Hops cloud the grain, but good malt taste, clear and palatable. Good for Coors.

Not really crazy about this one. Tasted a bit like corn alcohol to me and not much else for taste.

Tap - fair size foamy head, medium copper color, malty aroma and flavor with fair hop balance - not too bad for a general lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good looking, golden and clear with rising bubbles and a nice two finger head that had staying power and left nice lace. Aroma was light, grains predominantly but some sweet maltiness. Taste was actually pretty good. Itís a little sweet at first, but a dry graininess, followed by some hay and a bit of a crisp hops bite follows up quickly. Thereís a light corn and malt base, along with a little caramel too. Body is very light and pretty well carbonated, extremely easy to drink. I bought a single of this in a mixer sixer just to try/review it. I didnít realize it was a Coors product, but I probably would have tried it anyway. I must say that this beer is pretty damn good stuff, and that I actually hope that Coors markets it well and it sells well to their base customers. It has flavor, head, and color, and while not really the go-to choice for a hophead like me, Iím sure that your average BMC drinker would enjoy this beer. I would not complain if I went to a party and this was the only beer they had. This is a very good American Adjunct Lager.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a crystal clear gold with only small amounts of carbonation in the body. The head is thin and white with average retention that leaves a solid coating and a foamy ring.
Aroma: No aroma really to note other than a very mild sweetness.
Taste: Light malt sweetness, some toasted malt presence, and a little floral hop presence on the finish. Thereís nothing offensive about this, itís just easy drinking.
Palate: Medium bodied with a full texture, with light carbonation that gives a crisp feel.
Overall: This is easy drinking with a bit more flavor and hop presence than expected from Coors, but this isnít something I would buy again.

At a max n ermas in Perrysburg. Head had nice lacing but diminished by half glass to nothing. Very malty up front, hoppier than standard BMC stuff, but not íhoppyí. Itís the Budweiser for craft beer enthusiasts. Tasty for a beer of mass quantity. Credit to MillerCoors for branching out.

I certainly donít know the style....I just know what I like, and this isnít it. Has a gross aftertaste that just makes the brew un-enjoyable.
