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.

ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2012
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.

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.

dwyerpg (4703) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2012
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 (4553) - 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.

mmmbeer (1275) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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 itís made by Coors-but itís very well made. With as many poorly made beta-youpaythough-test beers out there, perhaps itís time for the macros to start beating the micros at their own game with some tasty,well made brew... stranger things have happened...

Patrickctenchi (4390) - Coxís 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 (2359) - 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 canít 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 Iím still enjoying it though. But I wouldnít order it again.
