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.

A - golden straw in color, 1/8 finger very white head that dissipates in moments and no lacing

S - lots of grain, funk, very sweet malt, slight hop note and very breast

T - not bad, better than bud, very sweet, light malts, grains, some hopish notes and a bit of spice

M - light bodied, medium plus acidity, low complexity, no balance and low finish

D - very easy to drink, perfect for tailgates, lakes, beach parties and such. Not much going on but not terrible

Final thought - this is a great alternative to bud and the like. Only $1 a pop, not bad

A. A light pale yellow with a thin off white head that had a little lacing and retention and well carbonated.
S. Has the typical grains and malt smell that most mass produced Canadian and American commercial beers have.
T. The taste is a grainy and biscuit taste with some hops in the back to give your tastebuds some kick.
M. A very clean, crisp and easy drinking beer.
O. One of the very few commercial beers out there that I would buy again when I am low in money. The best AAL out there.
