2.58/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Poured with a monstrous two and a half fingers of head that produced lace but didn't sustain itself. The body is fizzy like a soft drink and is slightly darker and more towards gold then the generic adjunct yellow.
Smell: It smells like wet fermented hay and warming doesn't help it's case. It's subdued enough to not be offensive, but that isn't exactly a good sign.
Taste: Pretty much how it smells. It starts with an excessively fizzy incredibly mild corn taste and then turns to a wet grass/hay taste backed by a chemical taste that reminds me of MSG. Once again, it's not offensive but it's not what I would call good.
Mouthfeel: No aftertaste, which is good but the carbonation isn't really doing much for me and it tastes like there is something unnatural in the beer trying to make it seem more impressive then it is.
Drinkability: Yeah, it goes down easy and it's meant to be drunk en mass to get you drunk. It's a macro, it's the only thing it has going for it. Still, it sits a bit heavier then it should and leaves me a bit gassy.
Final Thoughts: Labatt Blue markets itself as the good stuff, however unless you are comparing it to a buck a beer, good stuff it is not. Unlike in the states where Bud and Coors seem to be the Macro standard, up here in Canada it's Molson Canadian and Labatt Blue. This is representative of what Canadian bulk brewing has to offer, so yeah...

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%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5
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
