Beer added by: Todd on 10-22-2001

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.

Defines what I dislike about light beers. Pours out very light yellow, almost watery which carries over to the flavour. While I dislike normal Blue, the light version washes even more of the flavour away, no scent to speak of either.

Extremely thin in the mouth as well of course, and altogether unenjoyable to drink, so that category gets the basement rating as well.

I understand that these "light" beers have a bit of a following here in the States, but I wouldn't drink one of these if it was offered to me with a bribe attached. Utter crap.

Eye Candy: Transparent yellow-like, not even yellow..

The nose knows: let Blue Light 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 Light.

Bender Factor:If for some reason you decide that tonight is crappy Canadian beer night, Molson Canadian is the best choice. Everyone here in Buffalo thinks that Blue/Blue Light 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. That and the dude on hockey night.
