COORS : batch 19
Pre-prohibition Style Lager
LOOK: Pours a bright gold color with a chill haze. Frothy white head forms and leaves plenty of lacework on the pint glass. Good retention, but hazy for the style. Most if not all of pre-prohibition lagers were unfiltered, so at least this is historically forgivable.
SMELL: Ultra clean grain, menthol like hops smell that is medicinal and even soothing to the nostril. A bit of corn on the back end.
TASTE: Clean grainy malt flavor, mild leafy hops and a minute bitterness. A touch of earth and faint pine. Even getting a bit of wheat from this, but it could be the corn and possible rice playing tricks on me. It is one of the cleaner examples of this style I've had to date.
FEEL: Light to light-medium bodied brew, a bit of thickness to it for an American adjunct lager.
OVERALL: A stylistically exceptional lager that is very clean and well defined. Super refreshing, Coors should replace all of their standard products with this, most of their customers wouldn't notice the difference, but BeerAdvocates certainly would.

Sampled tonight on 3/19/14 though I had this once before back in 2012. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.
Pours a medium amber with not much a 2-finger white head that settles down to a thin layer on top. Lots of lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of different sweet hops and malts. Taste of like a corn sweetness followed up by gentle hops. Overall very enjoyable. If this is what some beer tasted like before Prohibition in 1919, then fire up the ol' DeLorean and lets take a trip 'Back to the Future" to taste some more early-type brews. Great job Coors!
