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.

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 (2007) - 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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Serving: Draft at the Nova Brewfest. It pours a clear gold with minimal head. The nose is grainy with a bit of cereal and not much else. The flavor seems to be all grain and no hops. I get a lot of cereals and it has more flavor than your typical BMC product, but it still lacks complexity and depth. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a short, grainy finish. Not worth revisiting.

BeerandBlues2 (10451) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Sampled at 4th NoVA Summer Brewfest. Pours clear amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, toast, grain), light spicy hops, an a clean lager character. Flavor is malt dominant with light hop bitterness. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation with a sweet finish.

BVery (7387) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Tap. Clear amber pour. Pretty much malt all over everything. Not bad for a standard lager, but certainly not terribly exciting.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Amber body with a medium sized off white head that is rather sort lived. Huh, they must have forgot the head stabilizers. Rather dull nose with a touch of grainy malts and a slight mineral note. The taste is lightly sweet, with a light bitterness. Flavor is mostly sweet malt, some caramel, light herbal and grassy hops. Decent. If this was in $10 30 packs, I’d buy a few.

On tap with Carla, Sara and Natasha. Pours gold with plenty of white foam. Tastes pretty sweet with hints of lemon.
