Served from tap into a shaker. Poured copper with a one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, spice, and grain. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, earth, and subtle spice. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly average brew. Nothing on this one really stood out if I'm honest. I would like to give them credit for trying on this one but I really don't know why they felt the need to do so. Worth ticking if you get the chance, but that is about it.

A - Pours a deep golden, looks a little fuller than your standard domestic, yields about 2 fingers of white pilsner foam from a hard pour. Decent retention, and surprising lacing on the glass.

S - Touch of a pilsner honey scent, mild grain scent. Mostly smells like a sweet, malty pale lager.

T - Sweet malts up front, honey notes and slight grain presence. Reminds me of a pilsner in a lot of ways, but thicker than I expected. Pleasantly surprised by how good this is, think sweet pilsner with a thicker body.

M - Lager body, but with a little more presence than your standard light lager. Thick enough to be interesting, but still potentially refreshing. Better than anything alse I've had by coors.

O - I would drink this again. A nice attempt by the big boys to bring something with substance out of the woodwork. Still, it's been done better before by better breweries that need the attention.

Coors Batch 19 has a medium, foamy, off-white head, some thin lacing left on the glass, and a clear, bubbly, amber appearance. The aroma is of citrusy hops, sweet brown bread, and mildly-roasted malt. Taste is of sugar, sweet brown bread, roasted barley malt, and a pleasant, pronounced hop bitterness throughout the middle-to-end of the sip. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Coors Batch 19 finishes dry, refreshing, and pleasant. Overall, this is a fantastic, delicious, and eminently drinkable beer. I rate it most excellent.

Clear in color. White head.

Lots of corn and adjunct flavors. Bready and biscuity. The only thing I really like about this beer (it being an adjunct lager) is the hops. They are kind of earthy and spicy.

Crisp and clean, but I don't like the corn flavor it ends with.

Kind of cool to try a beer like this, but I wouldn't buy it.

A nice adjunct lager, solid malty backbone with good bitter hops, clean finish and highly drinkable. Sort of a watered down adjunct SA. My only issue was the price, in my area 9/six competes with many better beers. If Coors drops the price to a more reasonable level this one could make it.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tasting cup

Aroma - smells almost sweet. a bit of a musky odor after the first few sips

Appearance - head dissipates slowly and eventually dwindles. Amberish hues and a bit coppery when held up to the light. Looks quite inviting

Body & Texture - Tastes slightly sweet, a bit bisquity after a few sips. Definitely tastes like a Coors product after 5-6 sips. Their consistency is impressive. Not an overwheling amount of hops either, which makes it quite balanced.

Aftertaste - Agressive at first and then quite appealing afterward. Leaves a lingering sweetness on the tounge.

Overall - Does not have the best drinkability I've ever had, but definitely can have quite a few of these at 5.5%

Great reviews for a Coors product? I had to see for myself. The 6 pack was only $7 total. Hmm.

Pours a nice golden/copper with a huge white head into my glass. Very nice way to start and not what I usually associate with Coors.

Crisp with a good pine/citrus hop bite mated to bready malt. It smells closer to an actual pils as well.

Sweet and grainy with buttered bread and light citrus hop notes. Doughy. Though not quite a pils, it tastes very close to one.

No "metallic" aftertaste here. Light and fluffy with lingering buttered bread and citrus hops.

I have to admit, I'm impressed with this one. I didn't think that Coors had it in them to produce such a drinkable beer. It's really quite a shame that pre-prohibition lagers aren't attempted more often by BMC. They might win over some new drinkers in the process.

Poured aggresively from bottle creates a foamy head that goes down slowly atop an amber beer. No lacing. Few streams of carbonation. Fruity aroma, probably from hops. Great moderate mouthfeel with good, but not overbearingly sweat or bready coating on the tongue. Taste is fruity with a citrusy IPA bitterness. Finish is dry with lingering hops. A balanced beer. Overall, a surprisingly satisfying offering from Coors.
