Labatt Blue Royale Light brewed by Labatt Brewing Company Ltd with an ABV of 6.1% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. This brew has the look of an American style Lager. The smell is rich with grains and some sweetness. So far so good. The taste is not bad, it has a small bit at the end. This brew is smooth all the way around. The aftertaste is fruity but it is not bad. Labatt Blue Royale Light has a nice balance to it for having an ABV of 6.1% The mouthfeel is nice and crisp. They did a nice job with brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would buy this brew again.

Labatt Blue Royale Light has a very thick, white head, a mostly clear, yellow-gold appearance, quite noticeable fine white particles roiling about, and a surprisingly heavy amount of lacing clinging to the glass. Aroma is of pungent, sweet & sour grain (think Genesee Ice). Taste is of sweet, malt liquor-like beer, a bit of alcohol, and even a back-note of hops. Again, think of Genesee Ice. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Labatt Blue Royale Light finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing. How this is a light beer with 140 calories, I would like to know.

24 ounce can, I think I bought this at Kroger or some other grocery store recently. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Not much to the aroma, just smells like corn and grainy malt to me. I think it tastes pretty much the way it smells, but there's some sweet malt and a white grape flavor noticeable too. It wasn't too bad at first, but I was liking it less and less the closer I got to finishing the can. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's smooth and is well carbonated. I don't think I'd buy this again, but I'd drink it if someone gave me one. I've had far worse brews than this, not bad for being a "light" lager.

Poured from a blue 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of corn, some grains. Taste is mild, light grains, a touch of corn, a tad more flavor than your average light beer. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Huge 24 ounce can brewed and bottled where all great Light Canadian lagers are brewed, Rochester, NY of course. This is direct competition with AB's blue bottled Bud Light Platinum weighs in at a 6.1% abv. Pours into a glass pale straw color completely filtered with creamy white textures, fine speckled lacing. Aromatics corn, cereal malts, clean somewhat clean aroma nothing like those malt liquors that normally come in these 24 ounce cans. Flavor fortified sweet flaked corn and cereal notes, cooked veggies, grainy husk notes, mild generic hop burps pretty blah at least it was brewed at High Falls Brewing aka Genesee Brewing. Mouthfeel highly carbonated seltzer water with some slight residual sugars tying all of this together. Not horrible but definitely leaves a lot to desired, What's the guy doing with hoser beer from Canada...I would have thought that Molson Canadian would cease and desist letter for this beer being labeled as a light Canadian Style lager.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger head of pure white foam and tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. The head fades very fast leaving only a trace level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is mainly of a corny and bready nature with some hints of a grainy smell as well as some fruity smells of apricot and peach.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter corny flavor mixed with a lighter level of a bready and doughy tastes. The doughy flavors quickly lose ground leaving only a bready flavor on the tongue that is overall very-very light. The corny sweet flavor fade toward the middle then resurge at the end where they are met with some other flavors of a more papery and light grape taste, leaving one with a somewhat off, but decently crisp, sort of wine like flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is quite high. The higher carbonation and thinner body create a more champagne like feel for the brew which actually matched very well the lighter and somewhat crisp flavors of the beer.

Overall – Not really a super tasty brew, but is has some odd dry champagne like characteristics that make it more drinkable in conjunction with its thinner body and higher carbonation. Too bad for the more corny and papery flavors or actually this may have been a much more enjoyable brew.

Today is a Blue day, what with my having just re-reviewed Bud Light Platinum, which also comes in a pretty blue bottle. I will admit to being a sucker for pretty things and this spent bottle will go on my windowsill to brighten my day as needed.

From the bottle: "Light Canadian Style Lager".

My agro pour netted two fingers of rapidly dissipating fizzy bone-white head with poor retention. Color was a washed-out light yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose actually smelled halfway decent, filled with adjuncts like corn, sure, but not in a sickening way like my last review. Mouthfeel was thin, light, ethereal and the taste was like so many of its ilk: slightly husky, some corn, relatively sweet. Finish was semi-sweet and mostly unobtrusive. This would be a great lawnmower beer. Me = damning with faint praise.
