Notes/Commercial Description:
John Labatt Classic was introduced in 1983 as Canada’s only national domestic “premium beer”. It is Krausen-brewed (slow, low temperature with a secondary fermentation process) and has a longer cold-aging process. Classic uses all-malt and a unique blend of western-grown North American hops, providing a smooth, full flavour product with a true malt taste that is slightly sweet.

This beer poured out as a clear golden yellow color with a fizzy white head on top that leaves a very light scattered lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer has some grainy aromas as well has some moderate hop aromas too. The taste of the beer was average to say the least, it had some sweet grains to start then it went into a dry bitter finish. The mouthfeel of the beer was carbonated nicely and was very drinkable at least. Overall this beer was ok, I can't really find much to rave about over it though.
