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.

12oz bottle, typical taste of a mass produced brewery trying to compete in the craft brands. This brew does have some potential though. Pours a golden yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma of typical average pale lager brew. Taste does hit some malty and even hints of hop bitterness in the finish. Some tweaking, this could be a good one.

Reviewed from notes. She pours a clear golden color and leaves the same colored body that yields a decent half inch white foamy head. Fast rising carbonation is seen. Some light lacing is left. The smell is basically just corn/rice adjuncts, malty. The taste is sweet from previously mentioned flavors. It leaves a sweet aftertaste and has a dry bland finish. On the palate, she sits light with some light harshness on the tongue, however theres a decent smooth feel coming through coating my mouth. Overall, this is actually not bad, wasnt what I was expecting for an AAL. Probably would come back to this only if served and moreso in the summer.

Free tap at Downtown--not the end of the world, better than most pale type of lagers. Gold color with a medium head, some caramel aroma with a grainy background. Some corn taste at first then some caramel as a nice surprise. Medium carbonation. Produce place.

Very fruity, both in taste and aroma. I like the mix of hops, well balanced by the malts. Very good for being a lager.

Bottle. Smells like a typical cheap beer. Pours clear, light orange, heavily carbonated. Tastes like a cheap beer. Did not know it was Coors when I bought it. Tried to look past it. Wife and I both poured it out.

Youíve got to give credit where credit is due. As someone who loves craft brews, I donít exactly rush out to buy the latest releases from macrobreweries. Still, I couldnít turn down the chance to have a "Pre-Prohibition Style Lager" when I saw a single of this in the cooler of my local grocery. I didnít expect much but was pleasantly surprised. The malt taste is simple but itís clean and satisfying. This is also hoppier than your average lager. I have mixed feelings about saying that I liked something brewed by Coors, but thatís the truth. Once in a while, an industrial brewer can get it right.

Tap at First Niagara Center. Pours amber lots of head. Sweet toffee and plums dominate and cereal. Low earthy bitterness. Medium sweet and low bitter. Fullish body. Meh.

It wasn't much worse than the Kona lager I just had. People make sure to rate it lower for being a Coors product, but I'm okay with that. That's what happens when you make a shitty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
