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. Clear cooper with a bit of white head. Aroma of malts, caramel. Taste is sweet fruit and malts, It actually impressed me, I was not expecting it to be any good, don’t get me wrong is not the best premium lager out there but it is a very decent one.

heemer77 (5210) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 17, 2013
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.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours orange gold with a creamy white head. Bold bready aroma. Med body. Flavor is bready with some nobel hop flavor. More hop than most American macros, so our predecessors were good at using hop. But it’s not all that hoppy. Worth the try to allegedly connect with a bygone era.

jbruner (3185) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours a clear copper on tap with creamy off-white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of pale grains, sweet malts, and light, earthy hops. Taste is pretty much coors original with a touch more hops. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Tap. Pours clear copper with thick, creamy off-white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, straw, corn, figs, light floral hops, and light funk. Flavor is bland sweet malts, some dark fruit esters, grassy hops, and corn; bland throughout with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours amber. Nose is fruits, bready malts, and some flowery hops. Flavor is a sweet fruity ester profile mixed with an amount of flowery hops. Sweet flavor and slightly sweet in the finish. Not special but not horrible for what it is.

Well, what can I say. I'd take it over a Coors Light any day... Nothing great but a decent attempt by Coors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is caramel, toasted malts, hops. The appearance is strikingly clear copper color, white head. The flavor is hop forward, noble hops, toasted malt, caramel sweetness. The finish is sweet, citrus, noble hops. Medium in body. A step up for Coors, but not great in its own right. Still, glad I got to try this.
