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.

Pours clear pale yellow with a small white head with poor retention. Smells somewhat like corn and like nothing else. Talk about bland.

Tastes somewhat like corn and grain, but mostly like water. Why bother to make this? Why did I bother to drink this left over beer flavored water?

Thin bodied, average carbonation. Doesn't have much in the way of aroma, taste, or character. A failure of a beer in about every way possible.

Reviewed from notes.

Served in a bottle at Admiral's Club at YYZ (Toronto, ON)

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to a thin patch and thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: Very sweet aromas of adjunct malts - including both grains and corn - along with a very light hint of hops.

T: Again, the flavor follows the smell of this beer... Light flavors of adjunct malts featuring both sweet grains and malts. There are some slightly skunky hints to the flavor of this beer and a light hop bitterness in the finish.

M: Served extremely cold, the mouthfeel was very light and thin/watery with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: Very light an easy to drink and refreshing when it is really cold. Sessionable but not a beer that I'm going to go back to often - maybe best served when fishing. Definitely recommend drinking this beer when it is very cold.
