Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast to leave a nice level of lacing.

Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a bready and caramel smell. Mixed with these aromas is a light hop smell of a citrus and earthy nature

Taste – The taste begins with flavors of bread and some caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances a light roasted malt flavor comes to the tongue along with some hop flavors of an earthy nature come to the tongue. As the flavor advances more to the end, it crisps up more as the caramel flavors diminish some and more bready flavors comes to the tongue. With these transitions more hop flavors of a light citrus nature come to the tongue as well and leave a lightly hopped crisp flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is very average. It’s pretty decent for the style as it is smooth and matched the crispness and light hop flavors of the brew fairly well.

Overall – A nice easy drinking and good session brew. It has enough hop flavor to make it somewhat exciting, but it still maintains an easy and relatively clean lager taste.

On-tap at The Boulevard, on to the beer:

Looks like the color of brass with a tint of amber. Head retention is fair, the lacing good. The nose is relatively soft, but does offer a few perks of aromas. There are quick bursts of piney and citrus juice notes, and a soft fruity background. The taste offers less of the fruit and a lot more breadiness. Slightly sweet tasting, with a kiss of hops. A twang of fruit breaks the mold, ye the beer remains balanced. It's a light medium bodied beer with a pleasant crispness, helping make Batch 19 refreshing.

Approachable American lager that's easy to drink. And coming from Coors, which is noteworthy, as I was told that Batch 19 was the name of the brewery, not a beer made by Coors.

A-Deep, golden with a nice head poured into a standard pint glass.

S-Light, malty and smooth smelling

T-Great balanced flavor, with a lot of different notes standing out. Maltiness, a hint of hop or a "sharp edge," but overall extremely smooth and flavorful.

M-Good smooth mouthfeel, not overly carbonated but not heavy either.

O-Great overall. I picked it up from a local grocery sore first, and have since been asking / requesting for it at a few local bars. No tap handles yet to be seen but a few places offer it in bottles.

Transparent golden color lager with thick head. Descent retention and no lacing.

Grainy, bread-like aroma with a hint of orange.

Whole wheat malt flavor. Assertive hop character, citrus and soap. Honey sweetness. Fairly well balanced and complex without many adjunct flavors.

Medium bodied and well carbonated. Slick in the middle and drying in the end.

Much more interesting that most brews that come out of Coors, both in flavor and body. Hardly seems like an adjunct lager at all. I'm impressed.

I was given a 6 pack of this as part of an Xmas tip from one of my favorite customers.

Served in a dimpled mug while intentionally attempting to be needlessly verbose and slightly pretentious with unimpressive literary references.

Golden copper body like the color of a Domani' merchant's skin, with an off white head, 2 fingers in breadth, and a rather weak penchant for retaining its stately form, much like a college freshman whose boyfriend recently ended their love affair without a warning nor sign of love's failing.

This reminds me of a BMC amber lager in aroma and flavor. And in regards to the light, thin, highly carbonated body.
Very sweet-- but a cheap, artificial or adjunct sweetness with a touch of sweet and grainy malt.

Overall-- I don't hate this. I don't revile or loathe it, but I will not be replenishing my stock once this 6 pack expires from consumption by me, my guests, or my kitchen sink.

I feel this beer is aimed directly at casual craft beer drinkers, much the way fork-root tea appears to be aimed directly at Aes Sedai. This feels like a beer that many people will only buy once because they "fall for it" and beleive this to be genuine craft.
We have seen the future of BMC tactics, like a general taking prisoner of the opposition's messengers in time to discover their strategy--
BMC shall be hitting us with pseudo-craft brands.
Don't be fooled. Tell your friends.
