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.

fidelis83 (2364) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours a light, old gold with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Aroma has a decent malt presence, a little toast, cereal, hay and light seedy nut notes, some floral and grassy hops. Flavor starts off with some nice cereal and toasty malt notes, but takes on a somewhat metallic, mineral taste after that that never goes away, some light tree fruit, more seedy notes, and sweet floral and planty notes come in later. Light body, with a slightly slick and oily entry, light, but very sharp carbonation and dry, but still slightly oily finish. Not good, but ok for a Pale Lager.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is a good blend of hops and caramel malt. The taste is big on malt with a hint of hops a surprising flavor from Coors. I really enjoyed it.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is of earth tones, some floral hops and soap. Flavor is floral and citrus hops with a finish of the earth tones and that weird soap flavor.

Oh, it's Coors. Maybe good for a hot summer day. Slightly sweet and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Coors. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like musky cereal malt, corn, and some citrus hops. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like cereal malt, musky corn, and faint citrus hops.

elamericano (34) - Moscow, USA - AUG 29, 2015
I dont understand why this gets such high ratings. Must be the well-designed label, the pretty bottle and the Coors name. I for one am not a fan. Weak tasting, over-carbonated, with a very light body and very little palate. Very skippable, and certainly not worth $10.00 for a 6-er.

coyforce (684) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Marginal at best. This seemingly mix between a traditional marzen beer and a pilsner style lager leaves a sweet aftertaste but hits the palate strong at first.

HighlanderOne (1296) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Poured from bottle. Smells like malt and ocean. Not bad lookin Amber gold with white head. Getting some lager notes in flavor, along with sugar, grass and cereal. Syrupy aftertaste. Its like a blend of three or more beers, and way too sweet for a lager.
