Found bottled at Jubilation in Albuquerque.

Clear amber colored beer with a small white colored head. This is significantly darker than any current lager from a major American brewer.

Quite hoppy, you can smell it from quite a distance away. Scents of corn and toasted grain with a strong noble hop scent. Spicy hop with grass, hay and a herbal scent I can only describe as sassafras root.

Starts out mildly sweet with a sharp hop bite at the end. Pleasantly hoppy, not quite bitter though. Herbal hop bite tastes much like it smells.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a damn good lager! If Coors tasted like this I would drink it a lot more often than about once a year!

I'm the original anti beer snob, love craft, but grew up on Coors and still unapologetically stock it at home. So I was really excited to try this offering … I was not disappointed. Nice clear, golden brown color with an ample white head, the lacing still in my empty pint. I dig hops, and while subtle, the hoppy notes are clearly present in Batch 19. Good entry beer for anyone just getting into crafts and learning what hops bring to the table.
Hey Coors, put your name on this one proudly. Solid effort!

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber color with a thin white head, good amount of carbonation.

Smell: Sweet, sugars, rice, malts, and some hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light to medium bodied and very smooth. Taste sweet with hints of malts, rice and hops. Little bit of alcohol maybe.

Overall: Exceptional adjunct lager! I certainly was not expecting it to be that good, but I enjoyed every drop of that pint. If you see it, try it!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear deep golden color, with a massive, dense white head, which retains superbly. The carbonation is slight. The lacing is dense and complex, resembling alien hieroglyphics.

Aroma: Lots of grain with a solid grassy aroma., and a modest herbal hop aroma.

Taste: Opens with a solid grain backbone, very much like a Czech Pilsener, absent the classic cracker malt. As the taste progresses, fairly sharp herbal and grassy hop notes appear, these turn to a medicinal cast as the taste draws to a close.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, full, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very nicely done, Coors has upped their game quite a bit with this example.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

sickly-sweet, with a poor blend of flavors. The honey taste does not blend well, standing out in an awkward manner rather than enhancing flavor. As if Coors could not agree on an overall theme and tried to include all. Sweet/bitter/sour without distinction.
