Serving style : 12 oz glass bottle, poured into glass for appearance

Appearance (3) : Medium body, fairly transparent. Can't quite read words through it but can make out most clear images. Copper-Honey colored. Minimal lacing that hangs around.

Smell (2.5) : Some sour malts, wet cement, kale, flowers. Powerful copper. Smells a bit like an amber lager. A pungent and sweet nose with quite a bit of sour. Interesting, nonetheless.

Taste (3) : A pinch too bitter for me (eye twitching, even...), but has some good robust flavor. It's quasi-Fat Tire but I'd definitely say it's better as the hops aren't as harsh and Batch 19 has a better flavor overall.

I'm getting aged wheat, lots and lots of malt, bitter tomato and rye notes, some sour mash, and a bit of leafy greens. Coppery dry finish. A bit like a much improved Busch Copper Lager (which is pretty abysmal). Impressive flavor - and really, that's all you can say about it...and it gets old fast.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : a great balance, both in hops/malt and in carbonation. Medium bodied. The carbonation is dull in a good way to accentuate the flavors and is not over the top.

Overall (3.03) : Not a bad lager. Again it's much like an amber and if you like Fat Tire, you'll love this beer as in my opinion, it is slightly better. Coors did a good job with this one, and I'm not quite sure what "pre-Prohibition" is completely about, but it's a decent beer nonetheless. Flavor is there, and in spades. Its just not my favorite style of flavor. This is a perfect example of me not liking a beer but respecting it for what it is about and the flavors it presents. This ain't your typical AAL. This is more along the lines of a copper lager or a harsh amber red.

I bought it because of the name and it seems to be a success. Not the greatest beer, but it's tasty enough!
