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.

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

This has a very classic old-man beer taste. This tastes like your great uncle Ted smells. It’s like an Old Milwaukee, but a little lighter, resulting in a fizzier feel. Honestly, it’s pretty good and quite refreshing.

From the neck of the bottle: B19825 08:08"

Appearance: The body is a light straw color with a short white head. The head has a creamy texture on the surface and it has very good retention.

Aroma: There is a light herbal hop aroma and a bit of a sweet smelling honey and cereal grain aroma.

Taste: There isn't a lot of flavor here. It has a very light hint of herbal hop character but it is more present in the aftertaste after the cold of the beer has left the mouth. There is a very light presence of malt sweetness that is only enough to let you know that it is there.

Mouthfeel: The body is light with a wet finish. Average carbonation and no bitterness. It is easy to drink.

Overall: It is a clean beer that is made well and is easy to drink. It lacks flavor but it is still a good beer overall. It's not a beer I would recommend looking for but if you want to pick up a few Pilseners then this would be a good choice.

Pale burnished gold, not a lot of smell or taste — Of anything, but sometimes that exactly what you want. Light. Crisp. Easy drinking on a hot day.
