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.

3.03/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Single, 11.2 oz bottle just copped from Total Wine and More in West Orange...
Pours a bright, golden-hue with a decent-sized foamy and frothy head that lingered on for a bit before quickly receding...
Faint, unassertive, macro aroma with hints of grains, corns, slight wheat, and rice...
Crisp, clean, refreshing taste... Definitely not bad for the style... Average, light-bodied mouthfeel along with a pretty good level of drinkability...
Not at all a poor selection for the style, yet nothing above and beyond...

This beer was just okay for me. It was not my favorite beer. To me it did not taste good, it was ok but I have had better. The aroma was ok as well. I personally could just taste the alcohol more than the flavor in thos beer. I do not know maybe I got an old one but this was just me. But I am not going to try to put down any beer. Because everyone has their own taste and likes.

2.39/5  rDev -9.5%

This is the epitome of average in terms of beers, remarkably lacking a body or a real strong flavor and feeling like a domestic beer playing dressup in imported beer's clothes. The beer, as a whole, is surprisingly very flat and doesn't bear much taste, although I wouldn't say it isn't drinkable and likely easy to session. I will try to see if I can pick up other Labatt flavors throughout the rest of the year (Light, Royale Light, Lime, Max Ice, etc) , but these beers, after the disappointing flagship brand, will be one of the last I seek out, especially since finding single bottles of some of them proves to be a grating challenge and I doubt I'll be able to drink a six or twelve pack of these before they expire, if they're anything like regular Blue.
