Notes/Commercial Description:
Labatt Blue is the best-selling Canadian beer in the world. Introduced in 1951 as Labatt Pilsener, it was named for the colour of its label by fans of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers football team. Blue was the first brand in Canada with a twist-off cap and won the silver medal in the International Lager category at the 1998 Brewing Industry International Awards. Labatt Blue, brewed using specially selected aromatic hops, is a well-balanced, fully matured, full-flavoured beer with a fruity character and a slightly sweet aftertaste.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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
