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.

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

Bottle. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose and taste of corn, toasted grain and lightly sweetened corn. Inoffensive. Lighter body.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of creamed corn, perfume. Tastes of a weird bouquet of pine sol and cheap perfume mixed together with some dry malt. Disgusting.

Finhead (1374) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Clear, deep golden pour with a frothy white head. The aroma has earthy hops and cereal. It has a light body with crisp texture and lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a slightly dry finish. This might be the best beer I’ve ever had from Coors. I bet this beer would fare well in a blind tasting.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy, dark amber with about a half finger of white head. Aroma of wet, grassy hops with some light caramel malt. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Caramel with some grassy and herbal hops. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. If people were not so biased and this were not made by Coors, I’ll bet the rating overall would be a lot higher.

jmohno (1285) - Iowa, USA - SEP 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2012 Clear dark gold. Nice frothy head and good lacing. Aroma has soapy,floral nobel hops with some grass. Some sweet carmel. Butterscotch.Real buttery over warming. Taste is medium-full body,big carmel butterscotch sweettaste and nobel hop. Big grassy hop finish. Kinda piney. Its a bit sweet it even lingers,nothing you would want to session much,its fairly malty even chewy almost.Somewhat of an oktoberfest feel to it.But buttery english,grainy,fuggles ipaish taste without the pale ale like bitter from that. NOt a bad beer. Im just not big on that buttery diacytal taste.

Clever retro bottle style and catchy labeling caught my eye in the package store (carry out for you folks in the mid west). Did not know it was a Coors product or I probably would not have bought it, given the lack luster flagship product. Darker in color than most lagers. Nice honey/malt notes forward, though not much in the way of hops. Certainly tops Coors other beers, but for the price. It is a decent beer, refreshing on a hot day, but would not expect to pay as much for it, as for a micro brew.

Let me preface this by saying that probably the best thing about Coors is that local (Portland/Vancouver) boy Sam Elliott does their voice overs.That being said, I sampled a bottle of the Batch 19 thanks to Justin at Beaumont Market and here are my thoughts... colour...golden-orange with a thick off white head. Nose...grassy, somewhat husky and notes of yeast. Palate...somewhat honey-like with notes of yeast, cut hay, toffee, biscuits and the rather obscure hops that we’re used in the mix. Most of the flavour is up front and mid palate. The flavours trail off rapidly at the back of the palate but this is generally a decent beer and likely the best beer that Coors has produced. I DO however agree with Justin, in that Coors should put their name on the product. Why not "Coors Batch 19"? Coors should be proud of their efforts on this one!

Pours a deep gold with a small white head and nice lacing. Nice carbonation and refreshing. Aroma is non existent but hey its a premium style lager. Flavor has a nice hop bite but gets a little sour and soapy on the finish
