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.

Draught at Riviera crappy pub. Caramel and slightly sweet. Not nearly as bad as I would have thought. Drinkable.

Pours clear pale orange with decent head and OK lacing. Aroma is lots of sweet malts and apple. Taste is apple, corn, sweet malts, very light bitterness in the end, and then a terrible (but thankfully short-lived) corny adjunct aftertaste. Not offensive, and goes down easy - but nothing to ever come back for.

Bottle from Total Wine, Alpharetta. Wanted to try the two "semi-craft" offerings from Coors. Pours a crystal clear amber with a 2-finger of-white head and remarkably large soda-like bubbles rising to the top, like this was force-carbonated like a Coke. Huge whiff of hops when the head rises up, and hops are present after. Very nice. Taste is somewhere between a Sam Adams boston lager and a Coors. Watery with corn, but some tasty malts peeping through. Very low bitterness, but the hops are there. Very close to Kilian’s here. Palate is typical for a pale lager: light, refreshing, watery. This is a good lager and I wish that all BMC products were like this, but one is enough for me.

Tap. Dark amber-brown with a small beige head. Light bodied. Really flavorful and drinkable for one of the big guys. I wasn’t sure, but I had strong suspicions since I bought it at a stadium. If only the more abundant macros to have survived prohibition were more like this...what a shame; this was a pleasant surprise.

Didn’t realize it was a Coors product while I was drinking it. Very very good flavor. Only complaint is that it’s on the watery side.

Served on tap, pours amber with a thin white head, but that thin cap lingers. Aroma is mostly hops on my nose, but that’s not a bad thing. Taste is pretty simple, decent malt and hop bitterness. I’m not tasting much in the way of citrus, floral, etc. Should entice a few "regular" beer drinkers.

12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Best by June 10, 2013. A - Dark amber body. Clear with loads of rising carbonation. A fingers worth of soapy white foam with...actual lacing and retention!!! S - Cereal grain, sweet corn, caramel malt and a touch of English style hops. Sweet and malty, light and pleasant. T - Cereal grains with an astringent corn finish. Oddly enough there is a light hop bitterness to the beer. A very confused flavor profile. The bitterness eventually fades away laving some bready dough. M - Light bodied yet creamy, nice carbonation. O - Looks great, smells nice, tastes a bit odd. Coors actualy brewed a beer that I sort of enjoyed, nice!

intrigued by Pre-Prohibition part, only later found out it was Coors. Just like eveyone else, i think this one is more of a drinkable beer than any other Coors. Other than that just OK.

Bottle. Pours a light cold with copper hue. Aroma is a very light malt/fruit/hop mixture. Taste is very slight malt upfront with a bitter hop behind it. Somewhat interesting for a Macro offering.

nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2013
The aroma is pretty simple: malty and slightly soapy hops. The appearance is golden with a small head for the style. The taste is like the aroma with sweetness up front and astringent hops in the back. The palate is typical. Overall drinkable but not outstanding, still a good attempt by a macro.
