12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a deep gold with a medium white head, good retention, light lace.

S: Lots of sugary malt, smells a lot like a macro amber lager, shades of Yuengling.

T: Sweet bready malt, almost an Oktoberfest like flavour. Some grassy hops at the end.

M: Light-bodied, crisp, clean, pretty well made.

O: It's weird comparing this to other adjunct lagers since this on another level; really this is a beer to compare to the amber lagers and the Euro lagers of the day. Drinkable, a little to sugary, but a solid effort.

From the bottle into a pilsner glass results in a very appealing slightly hazed golden body with a nice one inch fluffy head that slowly recedes into a thin cap and lacing on the sides a cascade of champaign like bubbles rises continuously to the top keeping things lively.
Aroma is bready cracker, grain with just a touch of floral hops. very clean smelling, nice
Taste is just right for the style, grain, cracker, a slight corn sweetness followed by a subtle hop bitterness, this brew begs to be chugged, it is refreshing in the extreme. Medium bodied for the style, but still a great thirst quencher.
Overall I'm impressed, Coors CAN produce a tasty lager, they should do this more often.
Recommended, I will certainly buy again.

A - Dark for the style. Slightly hazy. Nice little foamy white head with a smattering of dish soap lace.

S - Mildly flowery on top of some creamed corn notes. There is a strange and slightly "off" note of medicinal herbs, but I like it.

T - Caramel, creamed corn, butternut squash, and some herbal tea hop notes. Chamomile.

M - Wow. This is a solidly built beer.... especially for the style. Big carbonation leads to a hint of cream before flipping a switch over to desiccating dryness. Lingering grassy and limey hops.

I cracked this thinking it would be a gimmick, as in "let's bottle some slightly thicker 'Silver Bullet' and market it as something historical." Well, turns out that this is actually a really good brew! If this is what macro lagers were like back in 1919, fire up the DeLorean and take me back!

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!
