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.

Well - had to try this, it was all the pub had that I hadnít already tried. Pours a clear golden amber with a fluffy and fine-bubbled wheat head. Have to give the big brews credit, they know how to make their pseudo-craft brews look. Strongly fruity and rather sweet aroma has a malty undertone. Flavor, though, is quite good - malty, fruity and hoppy, rather toothsome. Body is about average, though there is decent fizz. Coors, youíre not fooling anybody - but your Batch 19 is at least superior to your other stuff. Gotta give the devil his due. ;)

Pint on tap. Light copper-amber with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is faint orange and grain. Flavor is light orange, rough grain, toast, and a touch of roast. Light body is watery, pretty well balanced, and has too much carbonation.

Sometimes a beer you donít expect to be that good surprises you. This is not that beer. Clear amber with some off-white head. Faint grain and malt aroma. Some hops come through in the taste but itís still not all that great.

Bar promo, on tap. Pours a dark amber with a medium head. Aroma is not much - grain, dirt, a little hops. Flavor is pretty much all malt with a little spice and a light hops finish. Light body, medium carbonation. Not bad, but not something Iíd try again.

Appearance is medium white head with clear amber. Aroma is a sweet malt. Taste is actually a nice balance between malts and hops. Overall surprisingly good.

Draft. Pours ruby-brown with a minimal white head. Not a bad ale, mostly cereal malt flavors with no real hop bite which the ads speak of. Clean and fresh tasting, slight hints of caramel and cherry.

Reviewed 9/16. 12 oz. poured on-tap into a beer mug at Olde Town Pub. From notes. A: Pours a clear copper color. Not much of a head here aside from a thin off-white film (good on them for not pouring this with a lot of head, I guess). S: Light caramel, grains, barley, and a touch of corn. Nothing impressive, but perfectly acceptable for what this beer is trying to accomplish. T: Slightly sweet with a grainy touch. Finishes crisply, too. Itís okay, far superior to regular Coors. M: Fairly light and crisp feeling, though it could be a hair less syrupy. It doesnít have the harsh carbonation of some macro lagers. O: Next to a lot of craft lagers, itís competent yet wholly unimpressive; but next to other BMC macro lagers, itís a damn revelation. Donít seek it out, but give it a try if you manage to randomly catch it at your local watering hole.
