According to the back label, this beer should be 'consumed ice cold from the bottle'. Sure, best way to hide the foul flavour - as far as there is any flavour at all. Well, I suppose this one has marginally more hops than the lousiest beers of this lousy style - but that should not detract from the basic fact: This is CRAP! Jesus - I must stop buying these shitty and (in Norway) over-priced beers! You know I buy them just to get another rating!

Maybe I'm too used to drinking Molson Ice. I thought I'd switch it up this time and this stuff is horrible. I like regular Labatt alright, but this stuff just doesn't do it for me. The first wave tastes like canned corn with a little white rice mixed in. The after taste is hard to describe because it's barely there. It's sort of metallic and very hollow.

A: Golden color, clear, no fogginess at all. Almost no head at all.

S: Apple juice

T: Sweet grains, rice, some stale alcohol

M: Descent carbonation despite the lack of any head. A little dryness and bitterness to it.

O: Pretty average. A little more sour and bitter than most adjuncts

caned corn, a bit of hops and tons of suck, this is a beer that me and my friends pounded in colage and was the beer that was most ofen in the fridge in those days. i think that it has goten worse then when i drank it last. when i opened the bottle i smeled skunk and crapy malt, i just wished that was what i tasted. when i drank this my taste buds wanted to comit suiside. this is one you should run away from at all cost

Damn. Harsh stuff. Pours out to a motor oil yellow color with a short lived head. No lace. Medium low carbonation. Aromas of alcohol and malt. Ugh. Taste is sharply laced with alcohol and adjuncts, with a metalic aftertaste that stays on the palate. Not good. Mouthfeel is far from spectacular. Not a recommended brew. Thanks to Derek for teaching me about the less enjoyable side of Labatt.
