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.

Eye Candy: Transparent straw yellow.

The nose knows: Let Blue warm, then smell it. It smells like vomit in a bottle.

Tongueland: The taste gives me the creeps. I actually have gagged while drinking Blue.

Bender Factor: Blue light is a better alternative, Molson Canadian is the best choice. Everyone here in Buffalo thinks that Blue is the the sheezy, I say it makes me queasy. Labatt Blue is a sad excuse for a beer. It should be put out of it's misery. I feel bad for Canadian citizens who are exposed to Blue on a daily basis.

Continuing my series on drinking disastrous brews, Labatt is something I have attempted a few times when I was younger, but was never able to finish, due to the awful carbonation.
So let's see. The nose is pure stink. The pour is sparkling wine like, with an ugly, bland colour.
The taste is pure crap. Just an embarrassment. Nondescript, lightly malted water, with no aftertaste. Very gasy.
If this is beer, what do you call actual beer? Canadians ought never to make fun of Americans for their beer while Labatt is one of their best selling weasel pisses.
