Notes/Commercial Description:
Labatt Blue Light was introduced in 1983 as a lower-alcohol, lower-calorie version of Canada’s most popular brand. Blue Light uses specially selected North American aromatic hops and the same strain of lager yeast as the one used to produce Labatt Blue. The result is a crisp, clean and delicately balanced beer, with a slight sweetness and citrus-like hop character.

Labatt Blue Light has a thick, white head and a clear, bubbly straw appearance, with minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is light, sweet malt and sugar. Taste is of lightly-roasted barley malt, sugar, sweet grains, and just the slightest touch of hops. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Labatt Blue Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. This is an exceptional light beer.

When I had Labatt Blue light it was on tap at a bar. The coloring was a light yellow/clear and I had the aroma of corn in it for sure and a little malty. The taste was a little blan probably because it was light and not just Labatt Blue. It was also medium carbonated.

I love this beer. It is affordable and gets the job done when needed. I live in Tennessee and am happy to find it at my local Krogers now. I used to only get it when visiting family in Michigan. The thing I love about going up north is that in the winter, we leave the beer outside and it is the perfect temperature. I love it when it is slushy.

Poured into a pint glass the beer looks like vinegar. There is a minor head but it vanishes in seconds.

Stale wet bread is the first thing that comes to mind, but it's also very reminisent of the dreaded Saturday morning after party urinal scent. There's actually underlying hop notes, but for the most part this beer just smells kind of like morning after.

Taste and Mouthfeel:
The beer is super light as is indicated on the can. It's pretty crisp with minor wheat notes. It doesn't necesarilly taste bad but it doesn't taste like much of anything. There's a terrible beer aftertaste which is my major gripe with macro lager. There just isn't really much to say about how this beer tastes or feels without getting blatantly mean so I'll hold my tongue for now.

Once you get a good buzz going and look past the lack of flavor you could probably drink about 20 of these. Would you want to? I know I wouldn't. There's only so much urination I can handle in an evening.

Bottom Line:
Surprisingly better then other macro lager beers, but I'll stick with my PBR or Schlitz when money gets tight.

Batty Blue Light
Big Can
Recent brewing, happened 11/06
Medium pour in a shaker

Poured a clear bland yellow with a large frothy mostly diminishing white head.

Smelt of moderate cooked corn and grain.

Taste was upfront moderate sweet fruit-like hops (orange, apricots) and light flour biscuits followed by a moderate bittersweet fruit flower hoppiness. Palate was light bodied, watery, fizzy.

Overall, as far as light lagers go, this is surprisingly tasty. That's all I got.
