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.

Saw the sign on the wall and thought I’d give it a try without knowing anything about it. Had a nice amber color and a decent head. Was a very malty beer with a smooth hoppiness. Not much on the nose. It was decent but mothing to make me go ahead and order another. I went right to the alpha king following this. I like the attempt by coors and love the marketing as I jumped right in not knowing this is a Coors product.

Drank @ a bar while visiting DC a few weeks ago. On draught. Clear golden amber pour with a tiny head. Aroma was of grainy sweet malts with a small hop presence. Flavors were right on par with the aroma although there was an odd sourness in the finish, light bitterness. Decent hop flavors just a bit odd. One taste is enough for me.

RobertDale (3698) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Sampled at GABF on 9-18-2010. Comes a darkish gold with an average white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, malt and some hops. Tastes clean, refreshing and smooth. Nice balance. Nice effort.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2010
On tap at Well on Wells in Chicago. Pours a medium glowing golden with a small white head. Aroma of pale malt, some sweet caramel, grainy and a touch of honey. Flavor is much of the same, a bit of honey, pale grain and slightly bland. A fairly strong metallic flavor I wasn’t big on. Finishing lightly bitter and a touch of grassy hops. Light to medium body and a fairly high carbonation. Interesting what they are going for, though could have been better still.

Sampled on 9/16/2010 at the brewery. This Premium Lager pours a medium gold color. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is cereal and grain, with a touch of hops. A medium bodied Lager. The malts are cereal and grain. The hops are floral and spicy. Nice carbonation. Very fresh tasting, well it was sampled at the brewery. Crisp and clean. Touch of lingering hops at the finish. Its still a massively filter lager, but its very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Much more solid grain aroma then the other macros,like some of the better craft lager aromas,color a touch darker then your standard coors,flavor is noticable grain malts ,a definite bitterness of hopping in the finish,all grassy type hopping,flavors dont linger long,you really couldnt gulp this brew down because of its slighter fuller body,but those hops still make it thirst quenching. A well done surprise from a sample not to be resold bottle

kottonmouth (5) - Alabama, USA - AUG 6, 2010 does not count
I am not going to try and sound cool by rating the appearence or look. This is a damn good beer. It is not very strong in flavor compared to some other BS beers that people love. This is a good beer to drink any time. It is a lighter beer that is easy on the stomach. I love it but good luck trying to find it.

On tap at brewery. Pours clear golden-amber with a thin white head, very fine clinging lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, and a light earthy aroma. Light bodied, crisp, lively. Mild initial sweetness, fruity esters, very mild bitterness in the finish. Well balanced, mild, drinkable.
