COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

yngwie (17109) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a clear body, golden in color, and with a finger-thick white head. Quite pleasant aroma, with some piney, grassy and lightly flowery hops and a pleasant maltyness. The flavor too is quite pleasant, although it could use a tad more hops for bittering. Medium body, very soft on the carbonation. Bitter and fruity finish with a little touch of pale malts. Overall, certainly a nice surprise, hope lots of Americans discover this and understand that they have been fooled since the prohibition. 130804

brokensail (16609) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours a clear golden color with a short lived white head. Nose is fairly typical macro lager aroma of sweet grain/cereal, light esters, and minimal hops. A slight corn note is present. The flavor is sweet grain, minimal biscuit qualities, and no hops to speak of. A touch watery, some yeast and mild fruit esters. That’s pretty much it. Nothing wrong with it, just nothing all that great about it.

bhensonb (15514) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours orange gold with a creamy white head. Bold bready aroma. Med body. Flavor is bready with some nobel hop flavor. More hop than most American macros, so our predecessors were good at using hop. But it’s not all that hoppy. Worth the try to allegedly connect with a bygone era.

djd07 (15293) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
On tap at OTR. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is raisin malt and wood. Medium mouthfeel with a toasted grain and caramel with light bitter finish. A decent premium lager from Coors.

Draft. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate soft hop and grain aroma. Medium sweet flavor with a medium acidic sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Worth having once.
