3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottlw. Dark yellow orange pour with lasting foamy head. Faint yeasty aroma, not unpleasant just not enough enough of it. Thin flavour, a little hop, but not bold in the least. Only a little finish. Still, better than most of their products

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper with good white head that fades rapidly. Aroma is more floral, with grass, yeast, and herbs. Taste remains floral, with hints of light citrus lemon. Grassy still with some corn flavors. But still mostly floral. Very easy to drink and refreshing. Light in body with the carbonation being average, yet softer than your modern day generic beer. Aftertaste is yeasty and grassy. With the noticeable impressions of yeast in this one, it actually goes pretty well with the soft notes and flavors that this offers. Everything here is balanced well. While nothing near extraordinary, I enjoyed this more than I was expecting. It has taste and easy drinkability. This will suit one very nicely when in the mood for something lighter. It is probably a better option than more exotic breweries trying to make a good light beer.

Tap. Bartender told me it was not good. Wanted to try it anyway. She was right.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall a corn and butter taste, but a surprising color (copper with respectable white lace) and a decent hop presence. This is a macro for sure, but applause for trying to push the envelope.

I wasn’t expecting much from the taster I received but this was pretty decent. No corn pop aroma or taste at all from this yellow hued lager. A definite step up from the crap for sure. Simple and not bold. Could use a little more fizzy pop to it but tastes fine.
