All I can say is WOW ! That is a good beer . So my local liquor store gives me a sample of a beer and it is great . I buy a six and now I look at the bottle and it is made by Coors . Biggest surprise I have ever had . Coors finally got something right .
Batch 19 . Made from a pre prohibition recipe with Strisselspalt and Hersbrucker hops .
Had I known Coors made this I would not have even tasted it . Glad I was not told first .

I saw it once and had some at a local bar. No idea it was Coors, not a bad beer but not my favorite.

I've had it before, I like it. I was just as shocked when i found out it was a Coors product.

Just a bit of skunk flavor . Just enough to make it taste good but not skunky. My cousin came over and tried it and he really liked it also.

I tried it recently. I thought it was a decent beer, though not fantastic. A hell of a lot better than regular Coors, but still no replacement for a good microbrew lager. I'll probably never buy it again unless the only alternatives are Bud/Miller/regular-Coors.

I agree with the above post. I wasn't "wowed" at all, a decent beer (better than bud/coors/miller), but I would GLADLY take any craft brew over it. Or a Homebrew!

I had it on tap at BWW and I thought it was decent but kind of tasted like flowers. I Would get it again but nothing to go crazy over.

I go to the bar and ask what new or seasional beers they have.
They tell me prohibition lager.
I ask who brews it.
Coors.
I order a Blue Moon.
Sounds like I should have tried the new Coors brew...

I think we're gonna start seeing more and more of this as the big boys of brewing see craft beer take off. Why else do u think InBev bought out Goose Island?

The thing is that they kind of blow at doing it on there own. AB-Inbev's CEO is a genius at cutting costs and increasing profits but these types of guys just don't currently grasp how to make good beer at the moment. They will figure it out eventually, though. The good news is Torpedo and other SN beers are $7.50 now in my area, which is great. If they can compete with BMC's attempts (Shock Top IPA...lol) price-wise then even if BMC gets good at making flavorful beer, I still won't have to buy them.
