11.5 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, yellow body with steady effervescence feeding an already tall, white head tha-- oh, nevermind, it's dissipating at a steady if sad rate.
Smell: Mild blend of pale and pils malts with a hint of fresh-steamed veggies served up with a ramekin full of light corn syrup. Not exactly an aroma that screams "DRINK UP!"
Taste: Sweet, disparagingly corn-laden flavor starts with some simply pale and pils malts. A tad husky initially and growing huskier by the minute. Blue is nearly entirely lacking in hop flavor and bitterness, though it does eventually dry out on the lightly husky finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: A dreadful product, really, that's both unpleasant and unrewarding and should be generally avoided.

I drank this straight from the bottle just to enjoy and relax after work today.
It was a clear golden color- what you'd expect from your typical macrobrewery.
A very light smell, hard to detect, but some wheaty notes of malt are what caught most of my attention.
The taste was pretty average. Wheat, grass, malt. It tasted a lot more refreshing and clear than a lot of similar brews.
Pretty decent mouthfeel. Not as smooth as I'd like, and a little too much carbonation.
This was a decent beer. Nothing special, not horrible. I'd drink it again, it's perfect for a weekend, relaxing, or after mowing the lawn.

2.6/5 rDev -1.5%

Poured on tap at Syracuse's New York State Fairgrounds.
A: A nice golden color with a very faint amber tinge. Deeper than your typical cheap pilsner but still lacking in color.
S: Very minor aromas of citrus and hops on a yeasty boozy base.
T: More body than a Bud or a light beer but not overly strong of anything. Lots of bready flavor with a very mild hop bite. Not too noticeable but not terrible.
O: If you're near Canada and your options are domestic Lights and Labatt Blue, take the Blue. Otherwise get something else.
Serving type: on-tap
