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.

Bottle, a Miller Coors rep of mine dropped this off to me today and was really anxious about this one. The flavor is like no other lager I have ever experienced, quite hoppy and smooth. smoother as it warmed up a touch ! The story behind this one is really cool and realize what it is before you beat it up. This one would be good to get for some friends as a tasting. Not anything I will find myself hooked on, but good !

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet and malty...straw an faint grass. Flavor has sweet straw and corn with very mild grass. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is straw/grass and a bit dry.

This recipe should have been left in the basement. Although out may be the best beer Coors has in its stable of dead horses. Very average, very boring, not worth any attention.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 Mostly Better than the standard stuff but otherwise nothin too special. A gateway beer. I?m glad a macro brewer is broadening out.

Tap at The Crunkleton. Clean and translucent gold pour with two fingers of creamy off white head. Nose is spicy and lightly bready. Very mild and mellow flavor with a touch of bread dough. Medium bodied with almost no hop character.

degbert (1520) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark orange-gold with a large-grained white head. Nose is pretty typical for a macro-brew; no canned corn or odd fruit, at least. Some bitterness on the opening of the palate, and a decent yeasty flavor to it, but it closes up quickly on the back of the palate. Finish is correspondingly short. Decent.

Cybercat (4435) - Georgia, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Well - had to try this, it was all the pub had that I hadn’t 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, you’re not fooling anybody - but your Batch 19 is at least superior to your other stuff. Gotta give the devil his due. ;)

nearbeer (4473) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2012
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.
