2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
An aggressive pour yields a rock three finger head over a clear amber body. Suprisingly good head retention with a decent amount of lacing.
Aroma has a very metallic note that I donít enjoy at all. A little bit of light toast and caramel is in the background along with some spicy hops. It is all overshadowed, however, by metal.
The flavor is a little bit better with a decent amount of caramel and some hints of light toast. There is an overall sweetness about this beer that almost gives off hints of molasses. Mild bitterness with a little bit of wet grass towards the finish. Mouthfeel is sticky and too sweet for the style limiting drinkability.
Overall, this seems like less of a Classic American Pilsner and more of a poorly made amber lager. If the sweetness were dialed back a bit and the metallic aroma taken care of this could be a decent beer. If I want an older style American beer, Iíll take a Schlitz Gusto.

Oh, it's Coors. Maybe good for a hot summer day. Slightly sweet and bitter.

Draft at Coors. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like musky cereal malt, corn, and some citrus hops. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like cereal malt, musky corn, and faint citrus hops.

I donít understand why this gets such high ratings. Must be the well-designed label, the pretty bottle and the Coors name. I for one am not a fan. Weak tasting, over-carbonated, with a very light body and very little palate. Very skippable, and certainly not worth $10.00 for a 6-er.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Marginal at best. This seemingly mix between a traditional marzen beer and a pilsner style lager leaves a sweet aftertaste but hits the palate strong at first.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle. Smells like malt and ocean. Not bad lookin Amber gold with white head. Getting some lager notes in flavor, along with sugar, grass and cereal. Syrupy aftertaste. Itís like a blend of three or more beers, and way too sweet for a lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle pours a copper/orange with a very large off-white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, and stale citrus orange hops. Mildly sweet but slightly watery on top of malt with yeast and bland hops, light bitterness on finish. More going on then a lot of Coors but forgettable and bland.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
August 22nd, 2013 - Is Coors Batch 19 a clumsy appeal to craft beer drinkers? Or something else? Iím going with "something else". While the color is a nice basset hound brown, the smell and taste give very little for the picky, internet crusading beer reviewer to go on. The aroma is generically sweet and nutty, like peanuts, but tainted with an off-putting urine smell. This face-wrenching note also appears in the aftertaste, after a sweeter gulp of the peanut flavored sugars and a very, very busy carbonation. This beer was left on the tasting room table for either a waiter or a drinker far more desperate for a sip than me.
