August 22nd, 2013 - Is Coors Batch 19 a clumsy appeal to craft beer drinkers? Or something else? I'm going with "something else". While the color is a nice basset hound brown, the smell and taste give very little for the picky, internet crusading beer reviewer to go on. The aroma is generically sweet and nutty, like peanuts, but tainted with an off-putting urine smell. This face-wrenching note also appears in the aftertaste, after a sweeter gulp of the peanut flavored sugars and a very, very busy carbonation. This beer was left on the tasting room table for either a waiter or a drinker far more desperate for a sip than me.

12oz bottle into a pint. Thanks to Eric for continuing to spoil (?) me with a bunch of beer I would otherwise never get to try because I refuse to buy this sort of stuff. It appears in my glass a color of artificial caramel coloring that is perfectly clear with some yellowish hints around the edges. A mildly off-white cap resides atop and refuses to die in the glass. It paints some patches of lace on the glassware and honestly doesn't look that bad even by american adjunct standards.

The aroma is immediately reminiscent of a bunch of bad nights chugging coors original aka banquet beer in my pre-legal years. It smells of sweetness like caramel candy coupled with toffee, corn and buttered popcorn. There is a trace amount of herbal hops that try to break things up, but for the most part this smells like a dirty sugary adjunct brew.

The flavor of this brew is somewhat like buttered popcorn coupled with a bit of caramel to candy toffee flavoring. A faint amount of herbal hops are present that break up the sweetness of the malt but are not present enough to have any distinct flavoring. The aftertaste is minorly carbonic and includes some sulfur and hints of that almost artificial tasting caramel or toffee with herbal hops.

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. In the past year I have had several "pre-prohibition brews" that were very enjoyable. This however was not that enjoyable. It tastes like coors original/banquet beer but with a dirty caramel flavor and a touch of herbal hops.
