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.

Interesting. Slightly above average pour (darker yellow with slightly off white head). But lots of lacing on the glass. I mean a LOT of lacing. Impressive.! Nose is of roasted corn. Not sweet corn, but a deep roasted aroma. This is heaped in hops. But the nose is not floral at all, what-so-ever. A hearty, hoppy flavor with a VERY quick aftertaste. A little too quick, actually. But a big bitter taste lingers on the palate. This tastes a lot like Augsburger back in the day (before Point Brewery f*cked it up). This is also dry, with very little carbonation. Different, interesting, worth trying. I paid $5.99 for a 6 pack at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. So it’s no too expensive to give it a try.

Golden in color with a nice sudsy white head. Light pale malt sweet aroma. A nice, moderately hoppy light lager. Refreshing and surprisingly flavorful for a macro.

Milwaukee being a test market has given me the pleasure of tasting this lager on a regular basis. Slightly hoppy with a nice malt presence makes this one easy to drink. Don’t let the Coors name turn you off..

On tap. It is totally uninspired. Glad I only got a sample of it, it really blows donkey dick. If you want a helles beer or a "premium lager" go to germany.

Sampled at the NoVa Summer Beer Fest in Leesburg, VA on 6/25/11. Pours a clear golden with a medium sized offwhite head. Aroma of toasted malts and grassy hops. The taste is toasted malts, grain, apples. Medium bodied.

Guest tap at lucky monk. Quite surprised. Clean tasting slightly malty and hoppy lager. Not bad at all. None of the adjunct flavor like many macros. Serving: Tap

ryanfolty (2071) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Date: July 21, 2011 Mode: Draft Source: Miller Brew House, Milwaukee, WI Airport Appearance: Translucent gold with slight head. Aroma: Grainy. Flavor: Consistent with aroma and maybe a little sweet, carbonated and light. Other: Clearly better than most of the mass produced garbage, but that is not saying much.

Regular mass produced swill. Nothing much exciting and just a little bit of malt flavor.

Tap. I think the low marks for this beer come from raters who dont want to like a Coors brew. Pretend this was made by Dogfish Head or Stone amd re-rate. I’ll bet the score goes up. I dont like Coors but heres my objective rating: Light golden pour with a smooth white head that kind of looks like a nitro pour. Lacing? It COATS the glass! Spicy nose like a fruitcake. Taste is cardamom and allspice, well weaved with hops. Kind of sweet like a circus peanut candy but very good. Medium palate.
