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.

Corn nose. Crystal clear amber, thin fizzy head. Medium body, light sweetness, fizzy.. Still tastes of corn, but does finish with mild grassiness. I had hoped for something a bit less macro-ish. Maybe beer sucked before prohibition.

Drank it from the bottle.Smell is like a lager. Tastes like a lager but a touch hoppy. Easy to drink. Pretty decent. Clean not yeasty.

Keg, Southern Hospitality, 9th Avenue, Hell’s Kitchen, 20/02/14. Pale bronze with a fast gone head. Nose English aniseed-sprinkled yeast and weak toffee. Gentle, fizzy and pleasant with wet dough, aniseed, caramel and egg custard touches. Could be Greene King. Decent enough.

The Bradley Center (Admiral’s and Bucks games) serves Batch 19 in a 16oz cup that holds it’s Kräusen ( frothy head ) to nearly the bottom of the cup. This is a classic arena beer, great aroma, rich hop flavor, and can be slammed, or savored until intermission. It’s worth visiting the beer garden on the south concourse as Batch 19 is only available there. Any other beer offering at the Bradley center will only disappoint.

12 oz bottle purchased from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Despite the fancy bottle and the dressing up, this remains pretty true to the recipe of a plain old Coors. The bitterness is probably from ill prepared hops.

Pour clear amber. Rising carbonation lasts for several minutes after poor. Malty smell and like flavor. A little dry and none too smooth on the palate. Great with burgers.

330 ml bottle in Pompano Beach FL. Pours a dark amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is spicy fruit and malts. Taste is real let down and ends like wet cardboard. Palate is a bit rough. Not a great one.

Little to no aroma whatsoever: light malt. Flavor more or less unidimensional, dry. Tastes a bit like dirt. Light bitterness. Very light body. Can drink it in a pinch but there’s not much else to say about it.

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.
