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.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Clear light gold. Small white head that lingers. Bubbly. It might be the light, but looks a little green.

Smell - Little bit of sweet malt aroma. Not really distinguishable from other macro lights.

Taste - Not as sweet as most macro lights. Dry and crisp. Light malty taste with just the tiniest hoppy aftertaste. Nothing complicated about this beer, but I like it better than the supersweet macrobrews of BMC

Mouthfeel - Dry and tangy. Clean. Watery. Average.

Drinkability - I like the taste a little better than most macrolights. But not enough to pay a few extra dollars a six pack. And it's Imported daily from Canada. wow.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

A - Average see through yellow with a massive white frothy head. Left little lacing.

S - Corn, rice, malt. Less than most light lagers.

T - Light corn, seltzer water, slight malt

M - Heavy carbonation with a medium body

O - Overall, this was a less than standard light lager that I wouldn't buy again. You can get a " Value Pack " at Kroger which consists of twenty cans for eleven dollars. This is something that you bring to a party for everyone else, That way nobody asks for ( And usually wastes ) your good beer.

Not a huge fan of light beers so I have to take that into consideration while reviewing. The color is typical pale gold/dark yellow. Perhaps slightly darker than your average light beer... Still pissy, though. Foamy hog piss head that disappears quickly and almost no lacing. Smells like metallic cheap malt with a touch of hops. Earthy as well. Tastes like a typical macro light but maybe a little more malt/hop flavor. Thin and watery and therefore easy to chug. Decent for a light beer but not very good for a real beer.
