I was not a big fan of Labatt Blue the only time I ever tried it. While sitting around a camp fire for a field trip in Grand Marais, Michigan, I was given one of these beers. The smell of the beer was horrible, while the taste of it wasn;t much better. I may give it another try sometime, but i am not a fan of this beer.

Just what you'd expect from the Canadian version of Budweiser... A thoroughly average beer. Can't understand why people drink this as oppossed to cheaper American Lagers.. Just goes to show image goes a long way in beer. The same people (mostly preppie college students) who insist that Budweiser and Genny are "crap" will call this their favorite beer. Very perplexing. Try a Molson instead!!

So I am not really sure what the exact color of this one is cause well I refuse to pour it into a glass. There is not much you can say about this one it is a normal macro beer,heavy on the corn flavor, very mild hops. They are built to drink and drink a lot of them. All in all I would rate this one way above most of the American macro beers, well except PBR. But this will defiantly have a place in my fridge especially during hockey season.

Presentation: 11.5oz brown twist-off cap bottle. No freshness date.
Appearance: A very clear, extremly pale yellow beer that pours a thick, patchy, pure white head that trails down the glass and eventually settles to a creamy lace.
Smell: Some corn, light esters and faint grain in the aroma. Fairly clean and uneventful.
Taste: Watery, near flat -- low carbonation initially. Tastes like a beer that has been left out overnight. Mouthfeel is rather creamy and smooth, body is thin, light. There's little malt flavour, except for faint dextrins. You can taste adjuncts (rice, corn, maybe both?) and what little sweetness they lend, followed by a quick bitter twang. The beer goes tea-like in flavour with a slight "skunk" character in the back, sulfur, metallic and light herbal flavours. Finish is slightly dry.
Notes: Water anyone? For those of you that appreciate hardly any flavour, body, aroma or beers that you can suck down just like water ... here you go! Seriously, this beer is a great alternative to BudMillerCoors anyday. Not as clean as these other big boys, but it's different. So, if those are the sort of beers that you are into, why not make a switch to Labatt Blue for a change.

Labatt Blue is a Buffalo favorite. If you were to walk into any bar in Buffalo your sure to find Labatt Blue or Blue Light on tap or in bottles. Labatt Blue pours a light golden yellow with a big foamy head. It has good carbonation and clarity. The aroma is light with rice cereal malts and grassy straw like hops. The flavor is delicate with some sweet cereal malts up front that turn dry with a crisp citrusy bitter finish. "Blue" is light bodied thin and a highly drinkable Canadian pilsner. It's a great beer for watching hockey, [GO SABRES] or as an accompaniment to a traditional Buffalo style fish fry.

Poured a bright straw colored beer with a head that quickly came and went not unlike a soda head.
Smell is of some rice, skunkiness.
Taste is of extremely watered down rice, light malts, and maybe some hop spiciness but no bitterness.
Mouthfeel is more like a coca-cola than an actual beer. Very watery amd highly-carbonated with those big, burning bubbles.
Drinkable if you are partying and want to get smashed I suppose, like the purpose of any Macro Lager. Other than that, nope.

Borderline bad, not something I'd want to have to drink that often either even if it was handed to me at a party. A run of the mill cheap American Lager with a funny smell and a bland taste. There are so many other beers, even macro beers, that are better than this.

Another sampling from the "create a sixpack" at a local grocery. In college,many years ago, I thought this was a fine beer. It pours a very pale yellow body with an unimpressive white head that quickly vanishes without a trace. Aroma is faint, some herbal hops and a hint of skunk. Very light bodied, almost watery, but well carbonated. Taste is minimal. A hint of corn syrup and some grassy hops, nothing else to note. Nothing horrible, but nothing to recommend it.
