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 one of the best beers i've ever had, I can't believe some of these reviews. This is my favorite beer, this and moslon canadian. Defiently my beer of choice. Pours a nice golden colour, with a nice tall frothy head. This is a great beer hands down. I love it in a cold glass, in a can, I just love it. My absolute favorite beer, if you are looking for a great beer this is it. Two thumbs way up. This beer is definetly recommend, these reviews are messed up, this is a great beer.

A - Decent head that melts away pretty quick. Light yellow/straw in color.

S - Nothing setting your nose on fire here, simple.

T - Taste is very good too ME, for what it is anyway. A very nice balance, nothing over the top, yet it still has decent body that tastes like beer... not to watery.

M - Above average for a macro.

D - I can drink these all day (and never seem to get a hangover if I do). Great beer for the weekend BBQ or watching the ball game.

Labatts Blue is one of my all time favorites. To me it has a much better taste and body then your average domestic beer (i.e. Coors, Bud, etc.), which drives it's drinkability in my book.

S: Smells like it has a slight caramel malt taste, but not an over powering one.

T: Smooth, non-heavy beer! This beer definitely stands out among most beers! Great taste!

O: Definitely a beer to try. My good friend tried it, and labatte became his all time favorite beer. This has always been my favorite! A distinct taste with this beer! Great and amazing taste of Canada!

24oz can into a pint glass

Light golden color. Head fizzes quickly, then dissipates with good lacing.

Not much of a smell going on here. Really can't pick up anything.

Taste is refreshingly mild. Not overly sweet, not bitter. And surprisingly not extra corn-filled. It is pleasant.

Mouthfeel is thin, with the proper amount of carbonation. Not overly bubbly, which is a good thing.

Overall, this is a quality Canadian Lager. Anyone who appreciates a simple, yet refreshing brew can appreciate this. No need at all to bash it, as it does indeed have its place in the beer world.
