Notes & Commercial Description:
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.

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.

Had a can of this and a can of Michelob Light at a Bluejackets game. Back and forth I went between the two, back and forth, Labatt and Michelob, Michelob and Labatt. There literally was no difference. Both had next to no aroma or flavor. Both sucked sour frog ass. Taste tests between two crappy beers are not fun. At least they were free.

Despite being thirsty and there being only this and hard liquor, I regret trying to swallow even one mouthfeel. It has no head, is yellow, and smells like beer and soap detergent. The taste is acidic water. Metallic ugh! aftertaste.Fizzy carbonation, watery.

I'm not even gonna break down each catagory. Everything that could go wrong with a beer is present in LBL. It tastes bad, smells a little like something spoiled? I dont even know what, but the taste is yucky. How could a respectable brewer put this product on the shelves? Light beer fiends that don't belong to BA probably love this stuff. They think it saves calories so they immediately buy it and pretend to like it becuase they think its healthy. Overall, I'd buy keystone light over this any day of the week, which says a lot about how i feel about LBL.

Okay this is simple, imagine Labatt's Blue which is relatively lighter american style lager, now imagine that same beer watered down. I don't know how they can get away making artificial beer, this just isn't beer. It smells of a mild malt sweetness very faint, no sign of hops here just chemical ridden stench. This is one poorly made beer that just over did it on the water and left out beer. Appears yellow and very fizzy (artificial carbonation), with a very thin head even when I poured it straight into the glass with no tilt. The bubbles are still rising from the bottom of the glass much like seltzer water, which also explains the mouthfeel of this beer. In the taste it is a very nasty watered down flavor that isn't sweet and isn't bitter it's just straight gross and unappetizing. There is no finish to speak of here, just blandness absolutely no flavor. You may have to take in a keg IV of this on to get a buzz, it is that watery. I don't ever picture myself drinking this beer ever again, no matter what.

The website says, "Crisp, clean and delicately balanced in its flavour delivery. A hint of aromatic hop with slight sweetness and fruity character." That really sums this beer up perfectly, not. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Almost no aroma, very light malts and yeast. Watery body with almost no flavor. It's drinkable, but so is water. I think I'll have a water.
