3.18/5  rDev +46.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Tallboy can picked up at the LCBO. This is the Canadian version, made by Labatt... can says the abv is an even 4.0%. Never tried this stuff before, but I haven't reviewed a light beer in a while so why not? Why not indeed...

Pours a familiar pale straw colour, topped with a finger of fizzy white head that wastes no time in fizzing itself right out of existence. To be blunt, it looks like every other macro lager, except maybe even more effervescent if that's possible. The aroma reminds me of limeade, with the actual 'beer' smells (of which adjunct is the only one I can comfortably identify) struggling to be detected through this overpowering, artificial odour. It's not unpleasant... it just makes me feel like I'm about to drink a flavoured malt beverage instead of genuine beer.

Despite the cynicism in the last paragraph, this actually tastes alright - for a macro light beer, anyway. Once again the lime flavouring is pretty dominant, but not obnoxiously so - it provides a pleasant tartness to what is otherwise a very generic brew with almost no flavour. I would be lying if I said I could detect anything beyond rice adjunct and artificial lime. The aftertaste reminds me of Trix (sorry to snipe this from an earlier review but it really is disturbingly apt). Thin-bodied, highly watery, and heavily carbonated with plenty of bite. Crisp and fairly refreshing.

As far as light beer goes, you could definitely do worse than BLL. I am generally not a big fan of fruity beer, especially when it's artificial fruitiness, but I still find this to be drinkable... perhaps even enjoyable with the proper weather and situation. At the very least, I can say I like this more than regular Bud Light. Reasonably inoffensive - a serviceable light beer option.
