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.

This is a great change of pace beer when I want to have a cheap full keg to
have in my keggerator . i wouldn't want to have it all the time but once a year
it works for me. BTW I try to only drink beer on draft since draft beer has a better
overall taste.

Serving type: on-tap

Labatt Blue Canadian Pilsner 24 oz can $1.49(OH)

Can poured into a stemless white wine glass. No freshness date. Look up the can/bottle codes on freshbeeronly.

pours a pale gold, almost straw yellow. A one and a half finger head that gives way to some lacing on the glass.

I don't smell much. light malts, slight hops, and a corny adjunct smell.

The taste is better than the smell. A light typical pilsner taste, light hops, very light malts. And finishes smooth and dry with a somewhat adjunct flavor. Better than the triple hop pilsner of M-C.

mouth feel is light but crisp. good carbonation, not overdone like other cheap brews. Leaves a light dry taste in your mouth.

Overall this is a brew that is simply OK. better than some other adjunct brews I've had. would i buy it again. Maybe , I have had it before and I am drinking it now.

Labatt Blue brewed Labatt Brewing Company Ltd. This brew has an Avb of 5% pours out a nice amber color with a thick white head. This brew looks like American style lager. Nothing good but nothing bad. The smell is good&has a rich smell of beer. At this point I'm liking this brew. Now for the taste. At first you get some richness but goes away fast. After that, it is just flat and than nothing. To me it tastes like flat bud light. It is smooth but ,the taste, there is nothing there. Mouth feel is ok it reminds me of a light beer. I can not tell the 5.0 abv. I feel if there was more of a taste this brew I would like it better. Overall, I'm giving this brew a 3 out of 5. Not the worst brew I had, but not the best.
