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.

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 (thatís what passes for "bold" hops in the macro lager world). Itís light bodied and actually not too terrible. Not that Iíd call it good. Itís 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.

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 didnít 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.

Tap pour or clear gold with a lingering white head. Only smell is of pale malt. Taste of smooth but bold caramel malt with little to no hops. Medium lively body. Very drinkable beer but not a stand out.

On tap at "The Tap" Sports Bar and Grill in Belmont, New Hampshire. It pours golden straw yellow with a short lived fizzy white head that turns into a ring. The aroma is of pale malts with a light but crisp and clean hop note. The body is light. The taste was grassy, bolder than some, with a slight hop bite and moderate bitterness at the end. It quite frankly reminded me of Coors Extra Gold with an elevated punch.

Draft at Hagan OReillys. Dark gold pour with a thick white head. Medium malt body with a touch of hop bitterness. Light hop aroma and a touch of sweetness in the aroma.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2012
tap at tylers in durham. Rusty water pour with a small ring of white lace. Nose is light grain, some grass, shows some slight promise. Flavor is more what you would expect from this brewery. A bit more chemical and plastic notes.

Tap. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is medium sweet and grainy. Taste is also medium sweet, grainy with a taste of orange. Watery, but clean finishing and drinkable.
