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 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from 350mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium-light gold with no haze, a strong effervescence and a frothy white head which seems to be dissipating pretty quickly. Par for the course.

Smell: light malt with a bit of sweetness, the promise of some noble hops, and a little bit of plastic. Not the best adjunct lager out there, but not the worst.

Taste: bland malt flavor, pretty much nothing in the way of hops, and a light bitterness. Not terrible, but pretty uninspiring.

Mouthfeel: light body with a big fizziness that doesn't translate into creaminess. It's OK.

Overall: eh. Not a huge fan of this, although I've quaffed quarts of it during band practice. Good rehydration beer.

Serving type: bottle
