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.

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.

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.

A darker golden color with a mix of very light fruity, malty flavors and smells. Medium bodied with a very light bitter hint to finish. Surprised for coors.

Draft. Pours a darker golden medium white head. Interesting aroma, bread and malt as well as some floral and fruit. Taste is a little sweet. Medium-light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Finish is a little bitter with a strange aftertaste. Overall its ok, something different from Coors.

12 0z. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with a bit of lacing, over a very slightly hazy gold (SRM 5) body......nose is cereal, light toasted malts, hints of corn sweetness....taste is light cereal, malt, continual hints of sweetness, finishing with a light hop bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high. This is a light refreshing beer with mild, simple aromas and flavors. While the hop contribution is moderate, it is obviously present and detectable. It meets its style quite well. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

12-oz. Thanks A&J! Pours a clear pale amber with minimal head and no lace. Smells treacly, like heavy corn syrup. Like maybe somebody left a PayDay bar floating in your stein for a while, or pureed some cheap grocery store white bread and refrigerated the slurry. But then there’s the faint vegetal and fusel quality, too--just to remind you that it’s beer. OK, before we go any farther, WTF is up with that custom capsule? They’re trying to make this look like a craft beer, so they....so, they...put it in a bottle that is custom-made just to hold this one beer? With ringers and date stamps on the neck? Those truckfulls of glass they ordered for this project cost more than what many small breweries spend on their bottling lines, if not their brew equipment, when they’re starting up. Who do they think they’re fooling? And they doctor up the label to look all scrappy and independent and weather-beaten, just come in to drain the water out of its boots before it goes out a-rootin and a-tootin agin, to bust some more doggies. This beer’s got triple hops that jingle jangle jingle, and a vortex bottle that’s home, home on the range. And if you look waaaay over on the side in tiny letters there’s something about Coors and how maybe it was brewed in Golden Colorado, or stopped there to watch high school sports and play horseshoes with the good salt of the earth folk it met there. Anyway, there’s no point mocking something when it kinda just makes fun of itself unintentionally anyway. So back to the beer. The body is fizzy water, and the mid-palate is the predictable shambles of fusel alcohol and a little dab of artichokes behind the ear, except this time they blasted it with a big hose full of corn syrup and sweetened it into a million pieces. So this is why they banned beer back in the day, huh?

12 oz bottle from a six-pack bought at Fred Meyer in CDA, ID. Pours clear copper with a medium off-white head that collapses in a minute or two, leaving creamy lace. Aroma consists of generic beer, vomit, cotton candy, creamed corn. Taste is mostly sweet with a faintly hoppy bitter finish. Thin body, medium carbonation. I really wanted to like this, I really did. Like that Budweiser Project 12 thing, It’s historically interesting to taste these riffs on these pre-Prohibition recipes. Apart from the vaguely hoppy finish that makes it rise briefly above most mass-produced swill, this was bland and uninspired. I’d like to think that the old-time Coors brewers who brewed this a century ago made this taste better than this, but who knows?
