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.

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.

Batch 19 neatly occupies a space between typical American macros and the hop heavy craft beers that have sprung up like wildfire in the last several years. Its aroma is true to the flavor-somewhat neutral with a noticeable but not at all overbearing slightly sweet hoppy character. It pours darker golden if not light copper with a cheap lager lacing and carbonation. This beer is fairly middle of the road, but never offensive to the palate, lighter than say Heineken, but more substantial than Bud.

Tap. Clear light copper pour with white head. Not very good honestly...at all. Blah blah blah.

bottle. light amber with small head. Solid crap-market beer. Not bad for what it is, but not exactly an outstanding beer either.

Pours a yellow-orange. Smells fruity. Made by Coors so it has a similar flavor but with a little fruity taste attached.

Well Ill go ahead and admit that I was expecting this to be awful. Well, its not awful but its nothing great either. Some of these other projects the macros have been experimenting with have been flat out repulsive compared to this. I could actually see myself killing alot of these on any given night, too bad this isnt what they brew instead of coors banquet or anything of the sort.

Bottle gift from SJ. Probably the best Coors beer. Still thin, but some actual hop and sweet malt detected. I would never purchase it, but it wasnt terrible.

Thanks Ian! Clear burnt orange fluffy white head visible bubbles. Aroma of cracker grains and light hops. Sweet malt cracker and dry bitter hops. Good macro offering.

Bottle looks like one of Trojans more interesting models. Clear, darkish gold. Muted, slightly sweet, slightly cidery, cereal malt aroma. Pleasant, crisp, refreshing, a little herbal hop, pleasing bitter. Biscuity-dry. Effervescent, starchy body, long aftertaste where the bittering hops wear out their welcome. ABC, Betton.

The bottle is pretty cool, but the beer is mediocre. For some reason, I am getting a hint of beef jerky when I drink it. Not bad but not preferred. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
