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.

Eye Candy: Transparent straw yellow.

The nose knows: Let Blue warm, then smell it. It smells like vomit in a bottle.

Tongueland: The taste gives me the creeps. I actually have gagged while drinking Blue.

Bender Factor: Blue light is a better alternative, Molson Canadian is the best choice. Everyone here in Buffalo thinks that Blue is the the sheezy, I say it makes me queasy. Labatt Blue is a sad excuse for a beer. It should be put out of it's misery. I feel bad for Canadian citizens who are exposed to Blue on a daily basis.

Labatt Blue is a very clear, very pale straw colored lager with a thin white head. The aroma is of cardboard and fusel oil. There may be a dusting of grassy hops in the nose. Very light bodied and watery in the mouth. It's like water except that water isn't a touch gritty. It tastes like chemicals. I would not identify this as beer in a blind taste test. Holy crap! This is worse than I expected it to be! There is a touch of sweetness at the end... then that poison flavor lingers. Did I get a bad bottle? This is intolerable!

From my brother-in-law's fridge. Offensive and detestable on every level. Carbonated brake fluid with infused mushroom juice -- that just about sums up this putrid macro swill. I can't remember any beer that has ever brought to the point of anger after consuming it. This one nearly has. Labatt Blue...a Canadian icon...a national shame.
