Nothing special but I liked it. The bottle itself is pretty cool looking. It's a thirst quencher that I'd like to try again on a hot summer day. I have a feeling the bottle will go down smoothly and relieve that yearning for something cool, unsweetened and wet to give that get up and go kind of vitality you need when you're, say, mowing the lawn. Nice.

Trying the Batch 19 at the UGS Lounge at Dulles Airport...The beer poured a nice clear copper with thin white head that is not leaving a lace. The scent carries bready malt with hint of bittering hops. The taste is very nice and smooth...there is a definite malt which provides a biscuit punch then finishes clean with slight bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbontation. Overall this is a solid lager and was worth the try and the bottle is pretty unique as well.

Since I was born 40 years after prohibition started I'll take Coors word for this being a "pre-pro" recipe. If it is true to the time the pre-prohibition years weren't all that bad and prohibition sucked in more ways than just banning alcohol manufacture and sale as it led to even lighter lagers post pro.

A - Poured out a very deep golden color with a 1 finger head that receded into some nice lacing.

S - Malt and cereal with some hop note and subtle fruitiness.

T - Great balance between the malt and hops with a slightly fruity finish.

M - Excellent carbonation level resulted in a rich mouth feel.

O - This is a decent enough beer that I will certainly buy again.

This is a fabulous medium-bodied, full-flavored lager. That really doesn't do it justice. I like IPAs when it's cold and Corona's and Beck's when it's hot. In other words, I like the hop flavor - not a sweet, malty beer guy. So, Coors reaches back into the archives and delivers a lager, which like it or not is what most Americans want to drink, and adds a lot of hop for this style of beer and still manages to pull off a malt flavor without being sweet. In my opinion, this is like a hoppy Sam Adams Lager. Now, I said I like IPAs and I know what I'm talking about here. This is not an IPA. But for those who want a really nice lager beer with a complex, hop taste this is the ticket. My biggest concern is that this just isn't going to sell enough to keep it on the shelves.
One more comment. Everybody has their taste preferences. I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest and have probably tried more microbrews than most people think exist. Within the caveat that everybody likes something, most microbrew stuff is bilge. I like good beer whether it's a global brand or one cooked up in the neighbor's garage. If you're in the camp that says the big brewers can't possibly make great beer, well, as the saying goes, "no man is as blind as one who refuses to see" or taste in this case. The big brewers weren't always big which is still irrelevant. But, prior to prohibition they all had great recipes. Every once in a while they bring'em back and batch 19 is one of them. AB has done it in the past as well. So, if you're open-minded, not quite ready for an IPA but like a complex, hoppy flavored lager that will go great on a hot or cold day, give this a shot.
