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.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2012 Bottle. Pours almost a clear amber with off-white head. Not much aroma in the works here, a bit of toasted grain and earthy hop. Flavor is of toasted grain, caramel, slight butter, earthy hop with a slight earthy, weedy finish. Light body with high carbonation. Overall, better then expected, like it.

So, this is better than a regular coors, as it has just a hint of hops as well as some malts and maybe a bit of butter. Not bad.

djd07 (3982) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
On tap at OTR. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is raisin malt and wood. Medium mouthfeel with a toasted grain and caramel with light bitter finish. A decent premium lager from Coors.

Sampled at the Artisans Craft Beer Festival 2012. It poured a light copper color with a white head. The aroma was slightly sweet with some grains and caramel. The taste was an earthy flavor with grains and sweet malts.

12 oz. bottle served in shaker (from Texas Market on Amherst- a gas station, no shit!). Poured a transparent darkened yellow with just a touch of pulled away from a bright light source, 1 finger white frothy head formed and laced quite handsomely. Aroma of hops, and some light oats. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt is just delicious-light on the feel but it still has mass when it sits on the tongue, middle holds up well, finish is crisp and a touch of acid from some hops. Snarky beer-bitches (formerly known as beerpayngers) hate this brew simply because it’s made by Coors-but it’s very well made. With as many poorly made beta-youpaythough-test beers out there, perhaps it’s time for the macros to start beating the micros at their own game with some tasty,well made brew... stranger things have happened...

Patrickctenchi (4266) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours crystal clear copper with whipped, off-white head. Scent is mild malt, hops. Taste is slightly wood-bitter malt... Bread, a little caramel. Rather good for a Coors offering. Not great, but well above the norm for the company.

unclemike (2340) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2012
on tap .Sweet grassy hay and faint herbal hop aroma. Malt-driven sweetness and moderate fullness of body, with a nibble of pilsy bitterness to finish. Tasty lager, dull beer

This beer wants to be good but I just can’t get past the gumminess. Its golden like Coors used to be, with lots of bubbles and a thin white head. The aroma is hoppy and weakly bitter with some wood notes reminiscent or barrel aging. The flavor is just so damn malty gummy. Somehow I’m still enjoying it though. But I wouldn’t order it again.

wxman (1492) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2012 On tap at Shooters. Pours a bright dark golden, almost a very pale amber with a pretty decent white head. Aroma is pale malt and hop flower. Taste is crisp clean and refreshing. Lots of sweet pale malt, grassiness, bread and hop spiciness. Good stuff, for a big macro brewer. ADDENDUM: Bought a 6 pack following my rating. This is not a $8.99 beer. It’s good, but not that good. If it isn’t reduced to $6.99, I think this beer will not be successful in the market.

Frosty schooner full. Pours a medium brown with a nice head. Nice flavor and pretty drinkable. Nothing really special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
