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.

On draft at Trophy’s Steakhouse. It is a light gold and clear beer. Grainy with some light malts. It is a decent lager, much better than the normal rice brewed mass beers from Coors.

Bottle pour - light, clear golden, very thin whitish head. Aroma somewhat grassy and a bit of skunk in there, but not particularly offensive. Flavor is quite heavy for what I was expecting...grassy notes and corn with some underlying malt. Palate is solid for the style. Not a half bad offering, but not my cup of tea either...

Crystal clear golden with a thin white head. Nice pilsner aroma of blonde cereal grains and a subtle grassy hop. Flavor is crisp and clean and light, with a earthy blonde grain tone with some old-world German maltiness. Very low low bitterness or hoppy tones, though there is a slightly grassy finish. Very slightly.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2012
This beer pours a clear pale amber color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grain and mild hops. Light body with flavors of grainy malt and grassy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a short floral hops aftertaste. Slightly below average overall.

On tap at Graveyard Tavern in Atlanta. I’m surprised this is a Coors beer. Round bodied, amber colored, just slightly sweet. Tea notes.

tap - Pours yellow-gold and clear with a white head. It has a bland, grainy malt aroma. The flavor is sweet with a touch of hops (that’s what passes for "bold" hops in the macro lager world). It’s light bodied and actually not too terrible. Not that I’d call it good. It’s better than the regular Bud/Miller/Coors.

Got it in a growler from beer world. At first glance looked golden with light lacing, a small but fluffy head. On the taste was hops and malt and a finish of sweetness like honey, but the sweetness faded by the end of the glass.

Aroma is toasted malts and malt grit. The flavor is malts, a hint of sweetness and a clean and mildly hoppy finish.

Pretty snappy beverage. Pours to a full head with a golden body. Just a hint of carbonation. Faint piney aroma after the pour but it didn’t last long, giving away to a hint of fresh bread. There is a nice balance on the taste with hoppy bitterness on the entry and a shade of sweetness on the finish. Worth trying if you can track in down.
