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.

Bottle @ home in a Funkwerks tulip. Haha. Clear, copper appearance with an off white head. Somewhat toasty, light caramel, straw, grassy hoppy aroma. A touch nutty, mild caramel, fairly malty flavor with hints of straw and grass. Actually not too bad.

Slightly hazy amber color with a small, foamy white head. Aroma of cornbread and light hops. Taste is an acidic bite up front but then seems to turn watery shortly after. Finishes with a quick roasted bitterness that fades and leaves a vague cardboard taste. I had hopes for this one at the start but it actually gets worse the more you drink.

Draft. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate soft hop and grain aroma. Medium sweet flavor with a medium acidic sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Worth having once.

Draft at Ballydoyle. Looks like a healthy russet brown color instead of the usual piss yellow. Something like a Yuengling, although I haven’t had one of those since 2004. A thick layer of finely-bubbled foam on top. Smell shows some malt, but also a note of corn adjunct, which was in use pre-Pro. Corn note does not make this smell too sweet, though. The taste does offer some toasty malts, though again the corn puts it right on the edge of being sweet. The hops prickle the back of my palate with a German spiciness, and possibly some Northern Brewer for bittering. Malts get a little syrupy toward the end.

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.

12 ounce bottle that pouured a golden yellow. Arommas of malt, and grassy hops. Flavor matches aroma with a little hop presennce, decennt everyday brew to enjoy outside.

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.
