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 is number two....gonna drink it with my left over pizza. The beer pours a clear yellow color with an intial foamy white head that dissapates to nothing. The smell and taste is typical...grain with mild hop just enought to attempt to balance the beer. The mouthfeel is light and carbonation is big. Overall is typical....drinkable....but not notable.

A - super clean straw color. soda like fizz with a small quickly fading head that leaves no lacing

S - there really isn't one. a bit of grain, kinda skunky.

T/M - there is a really off putting sour graininess to the nose. light and clear with little flavor.

O - when you've gotta drink something, drink something else.

Appearance – Clear pale yellow colour with an above average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is almost no lacing. The head didn't hang around for long.

Smell - Grains, bread, corn, malts

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation. I can taste malts, light hops, and lots of corn. There really isn't a whole lot of taste going in here.. just grains/corn. It ends with a grainy slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall – It's odd that this beers slogan used to be 'If I wanted a water, I'd ask for it'.. it's actually pretty watery and tasteless It also has too much carbonation. Not something I intend on having again, but I didn't turn it away when someone offered me it.
