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.

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.

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 can’t 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 I’m still enjoying it though. But I wouldn’t order it again.

wxman (1610) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2012 On tap at Shooters. Pours a bright dark golden, almost a very pale amber with a pretty decent white head. Aroma is pale malt and hop flower. Taste is crisp clean and refreshing. Lots of sweet pale malt, grassiness, bread and hop spiciness. Good stuff, for a big macro brewer. ADDENDUM: Bought a 6 pack following my rating. This is not a $8.99 beer. It’s good, but not that good. If it isn’t reduced to $6.99, I think this beer will not be successful in the market.

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 (1431) - 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.

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.
