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.

I was not a big fan of Labatt Blue the only time I ever tried it. While sitting around a camp fire for a field trip in Grand Marais, Michigan, I was given one of these beers. The smell of the beer was horrible, while the taste of it wasn;t much better. I may give it another try sometime, but i am not a fan of this beer.
