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.

I drank this at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI, then I went to the hospital for 4 days (completely unrelated to the beer). This is the last beer I'll have for a little while, and I'm kinda bummed it was this one.

Bottle. Aroma is funky. Grass, dirt, bread. Taste is same funky. Flavor is weak, all grass, metallic. Not that good imo, but better than most main stream beers.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon zest, grain, butter, and grass. Flavor of grass, grain, butter, earthiness, and florals.

Strange taste. It's as if it wants to be hoppy but it really isn't. Thanks to a guy at work he gave me a case for free. Otherwise I don't think I would buy it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Miller Park. Brewers vs. Nationals. Great seats right behind first base. The beer is hazy and light brown with a half inch of light khaki head. The aroma is adjunct sweetness, sweet caramel malt. Smells macro all the way. The taste is just shitty. Theres really no other way to say it. I try to rate to style, and I dont expect an adjunct lager to have the complexity of a gueze or big imperial stout. That said, this beer tastes like syrup, artificial sweeteners, fake fruity crap. There is no integrity in this product. This beer was designed for commercial purposes only. Gross on so many levels. Avoid.

Light gold pour the white bubbly head almost completely gone before I could get through half this review. That was fast. In a hurry to find a sampling of six new brews had me lunging for this cool label and interested in checking out a brew bragging on its "pre-prohibition" style lager. If I had the time I would have read the bottle more closely, at that point I would not have picked this one up. Im definitely not a huge fan, but Im glad I was able to try it. Coors actually didnt do a bad job but I must say I came very close to running away from this when I discovered the brewer. Still, this is much heavier a lager than I expected, a little yeasty, but crisp. I am not enjoying the aftertaste, however, as it seems really bitter and slightly metallic. My take is that this is not worth the price, but a damn sight better than a regular Coors.

Coors should return the beer recipe for this one back to the archives. A beer which is way past its prime...

Pours clear gold with small white head on tap at coors brewery. Aroma of orange and malt. Malt flavor with hint of hops and corn syrup. Not a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad but leaves an after taste that im not a fan of. Not much of a smell but I would say its decent.

Clear yellow/orange pour with large fast dissipating white bubbly head. Sweet malt and sort of syrupy smell. Also some yeast. Definite corn syrup for taste, also some bitter but not hoppy. Watery and not too high in carbonation. Way sweet. Not bad but not a fan either.
