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 to pint. Looks alright; the color of apple juice with thin white lacing. Smells mildly bitter and skunky with a little sweetness and doughiness. Tastes just like it smells. Average on the palate. Exceeded my expectations.

brokensail (9950) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours a clear golden color with a short lived white head. Nose is fairly typical macro lager aroma of sweet grain/cereal, light esters, and minimal hops. A slight corn note is present. The flavor is sweet grain, minimal biscuit qualities, and no hops to speak of. A touch watery, some yeast and mild fruit esters. That’s pretty much it. Nothing wrong with it, just nothing all that great about it.

jjuf1853 (1201) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz). Pours a clear copper amber color with a white head. Aroma has some nice malt notes. Flavor is surprisingly good with enough hops to make you notice without being too much for a "macro" drinker to tolerate.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Tap at The Wheel, Estes Park, Colorado. Pours an average autumn amber with a nose of crispy autumn leaves, light biscuit, and delicate orange peel. Flavor is orange rind and leafy toast with a light pat of butter. Lightly tingly on the tongue. Not bad.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, honey-hued body with nearly two fingers worth of rich foam that fades but never disappears.

Smell: Honey accents ahead of the pale maltiness trailed by notes of leafy green, citrusy, spicy hops.

Taste: Honey-brushed maltiness with a thin hint of lightly toasted grain. Moderately sweet throughout. Lemony, leafy, herbal hops with ample bitterness to balance it out, or so I thought, as the sweetness makes a last-minute rebound before the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It’ll do in a pinch!

Coors you tricked me how is this your beer. I thought you were a normal beer. This is okay though.

dbarnold (1125) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - AUG 1, 2012
For a "premium lager" it did have a good bit of flavor and the hops were more prominent than I would guess. It was overall refreshing and had a decent kick. If it’s all you can get in a mass-market bar it’s not too bad a choice.

Had at Dewey Beach on July 28th when Yuengling was gone. An okay lager that serves as substitute, nothing special.

Diablokev (145) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2012
The aroma is a quick fading yeast, the appearance is a honey gold with a thin white head. The taste is of a wek IPA with a stale aftertaste. An easy to drink beer overall average.
