Notes/Commercial Description:
John and Hugh Labatt, grandsons of founder John K. Labatt, launched Labatt 50 in 1950 to commemorate 50 years of partnership. The first light-tasting ale introduced in Canada, Labatt 50 was Canada's best-selling beer until 1979 when, with the increasing popularity of lagers, it was surpassed by Labatt Blue. Labatt 50 is fermented using a special ale yeast, in use at Labatt since 1933. Specially-selected North American hops and a good balance of dryness, complemented by a fruity taste, provide Labatt 50 with all the distinguishing features of a true ale.

Drinking at the bar and I didn't got disappointed at all.
The look of it its more about a yellow brown look.
Nice carbonation with 1 finger of head that quickly disappear .
The smell of it is really nice. You have that corny smell.
About the taste you got that corny taste. Really different than the budweiser or the molson. The after taste is smooth. Its an easy drinking beer. I was really surprised.
So overall would I recommend it ? Of course ! If you see that the price is the same as a Budweiser or a Molson or a Coors as a Labatt 50 , take the Labatt 50 with no doubt or no fear. This is a nice refreshing testing beer, with that personal taste. I took one and I was surprised that I took a second one.
