Batch 19 comes across with a fair amount of carbonation and bitterness throughout. It does have a beautiful light amber color but otherwise is pretty much an average nondescript lager. If you like lagers this will replace any one you drink. Now having written all this, I just noticed this was a Coors product (so now it all falls into place).

OK, so this isn’t terrible. It’s easy drinking, has a light hop presence that’s slightly astringent. Light hop nose. Golden pour with off white head that persists at least twenty minutes.

Cool bottle. Interesting brew. Pours an amber lager with a bit of white bubbles here and there. Nose is caramel, sugar substitutes, some banana, a little grain - nice nose. Flavor is nice and smooth lager - reminds me of a munich helles and is slightly sweet and woody. Easy drinking. Medium bodied with lower carb and a nice semi slick finish. A surprise from a giant - a really drinkable beer. I would order this occasionally.

Misc.: Best by March 17, 2014
Poured a honey golden clear color with two fingers of frothy white head. Some noticeable bubbles coming up from the bottom. Sporadic foamy spots of good lacing on the sides all the way down. Good retention on the top as well.
Smelled caramel, honey, Cheerios, corn, sourdough bread and grass. Much better though than the average AAL.
Tasted a lot like the smell. Got corn, wheat grass, honey, caramel, metal, cereal, toast and sourdough bread. Not quite as good as the smell, but still pretty good.
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish.
I have to say, for the style, this beer was much better than I thought it was going to be. Definitely a good alternative to the Bud, Miller Lite, etc.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly drinkable beer. Poured at a good temperature with a thick, cream-colored, medium size head that settles after a bit and some lace. Color is a clear medium amber with a few slow bubble trails. Aroma is a tad perfumey, malt, grass. Flavor’s like nose, tang and mild sweetness up front, bitter in back. Not too complex, but drinkable. Body/carbonation decent. Finish is like flavor, on the short side.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear, golden/copper with an off-white, half finger head.
Aroma has notes of bread, caramel, and some slight floral hops.
Taste mild but balanced. Starts out with some bready caramel malt then moves a bit more bitter and ends slightly weak and metallic.
Medium body and carbonation. Fairly crush and clean in the mouth. Not a lot going on.
Overall not bad. Ok aroma and texture but the flavour could be a bit better without the harsh finish. Cheers!

Not bad, sessionable but not too much flavor otherwise. Little head and an offsetting aftertaste. On par with coors.
