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: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

Poured a crystal clear dark golden yellow with almost a hint of orange with a thin quickly dissipating white head.

The smell is thin, a bit sweet and bready with just a hint of grassy hops.

The flavor is a bit sweeter than the typical Macro Lager, has a light bready quality and a bit of corn flavor. No hop flavors at all to speak of, and no perceptible bitterness.

The mouthfeel is woefully thin and watery.

Your typical Macro Lager, nothing special here.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: thin white head on a clear straw colored body.

S: sweet corn and grains. Typical.

T: very very watery up front. Sweet corn comes in at the finish with mild hints of lemon. Mild grain notes throughout. Nothing offensive though.

M: light body and high carbonation.

Overall: not offensive but also lacking on flavor may it be offensive or not. Overall drinkable and about what I expected.
