Notes / Commercial Description:
Labatt Blue is the best-selling Canadian beer in the world. Introduced in 1951 as Labatt Pilsener, it was named for the colour of its label by fans of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers football team. Blue was the first brand in Canada with a twist-off cap and won the silver medal in the International Lager category at the 1998 Brewing Industry International Awards. Labatt Blue, brewed using specially selected aromatic hops, is a well-balanced, fully matured, full-flavoured beer with a fruity character and a slightly sweet aftertaste.

24 Oz Can poured into glass
Look - very clear almost like water. light straw color. Medium foam head and some lacing on glass
Smell - smells like yeast, water, hops, and barley and some adjunct perhaps
Taste - It has a metallic sweet taste. Very crisp and refreshing. Quite carbonated. Not bitter really at all but just a small touch of hops. It's pretty simple but its not a bad beer if you just want an ice cold average beer.

Grade is B-

My maternal grandfather drank the hell out of this, pleasant bitterness and just the perfect level of carbonation.

Labatt Blue is a solid Canadian pilsner. Easy drinking and refreshing. Crushable on a hot summer day after yard work. Always have enjoyed these. Makes it’s way into my regular rotation. Cheers.

an always-reliable fallback beer; doesn’t taste like much, but it gets the job done. however, it is impossible to drink just one
