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.

Sampled at the Artisans Craft Beer Festival 2012. It poured a light copper color with a white head. The aroma was slightly sweet with some grains and caramel. The taste was an earthy flavor with grains and sweet malts.

12 oz. bottle served in shaker (from Texas Market on Amherst- a gas station, no shit!). Poured a transparent darkened yellow with just a touch of pulled away from a bright light source, 1 finger white frothy head formed and laced quite handsomely. Aroma of hops, and some light oats. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt is just delicious-light on the feel but it still has mass when it sits on the tongue, middle holds up well, finish is crisp and a touch of acid from some hops. Snarky beer-bitches (formerly known as beerpayngers) hate this brew simply because it’s made by Coors-but it’s very well made. With as many poorly made beta-youpaythough-test beers out there, perhaps it’s time for the macros to start beating the micros at their own game with some tasty,well made brew... stranger things have happened...

Pours crystal clear copper with whipped, off-white head.
Scent is mild malt, hops.
Taste is slightly wood-bitter malt...
Bread, a little caramel.
Rather good for a Coors offering.
Not great, but well above the norm for the company.

on tap .Sweet grassy hay and faint herbal hop aroma. Malt-driven sweetness and moderate fullness of body, with a nibble of pilsy bitterness to finish. Tasty lager, dull beer

This beer wants to be good but I just can’t get past the gumminess. Its golden like Coors used to be, with lots of bubbles and a thin white head. The aroma is hoppy and weakly bitter with some wood notes reminiscent or barrel aging. The flavor is just so damn malty gummy. Somehow I’m still enjoying it though. But I wouldn’t order it again.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2012 On tap at Shooters. Pours a bright dark golden, almost a very pale amber with a pretty decent white head. Aroma is pale malt and hop flower. Taste is crisp clean and refreshing. Lots of sweet pale malt, grassiness, bread and hop spiciness. Good stuff, for a big macro brewer. ADDENDUM: Bought a 6 pack following my rating. This is not a $8.99 beer. It’s good, but not that good. If it isn’t reduced to $6.99, I think this beer will not be successful in the market.

Frosty schooner full. Pours a medium brown with a nice head. Nice flavor and pretty drinkable. Nothing really special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose and taste of corn, toasted grain and lightly sweetened corn. Inoffensive. Lighter body.

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of creamed corn, perfume. Tastes of a weird bouquet of pine sol and cheap perfume mixed together with some dry malt. Disgusting.

bottled, thanks to errl, orange colored pour with some sweet caramel notes in the aroma, flavor is sweet caramel as well, not bad
