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.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Tap: deep amber body with really nice clarity & a surprisingly long lasting, bone-white, frothy cap that leaves decent sheets of lacing in its wake. Aroma is somewhat underwhelming; twinge of grains, malt sweetness, metal, musty Noble hops, very faint breadiness. Taste has notes of citrus & lemon zest, grain, subtle hop bitterness, a mild wheat-y character (even though this beer isnít made with wheat), & a touch of finishing, stale hops. All around, a better product than I expect from Coors, but still not enough to make me want to revisit.

Its 8.99 a six pack Coors. Not my cup of tea. Drank them from the bottle. Drinkable but not much going on in any aspect.

Nothing in particular really stands out about this beer, but itís not unpleasant. If youíre just looking for a straightforward beer, I feel you could do worse than this. Not amazing, but still decent.

Meh! Nothing special here. Coors once again pretending to be something other than a macrobrew. Bland and uninteresting. Darker than normal for a lager, but aroma and taste are weak malt. Small creamy head but all else is average.

Drinking from bottle picked up single at wine store. I love a lager but this one is not to my taste. After taste in mouth hangs around too long, earthy

Bottle from local store. Poured a fizzy amber color with a small white head. Aroma was notes of light, sweet grains, some light yeast and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor was sweet grains, light notes. A bit thin, but servicable. If this is what their regular Coors/light tasted like, I wouldnít cringe when offered one at parties.
