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.

A: Very clear light yellow, Good head when poured but does not last long, very little lacing. S: very little maltyness but not funky either. T: bland and generic, really can't taste any malt or hop. M: good carbonation that doesn't over fill the mouth, dare I say crisp. O: Better than Bud and less expensive in my area than Bud.

I personally love labatt blue. First beer I ever drank. Definitely my go to for aal. It's as cheaper than bud where I am, and tastes better. It has a taste that never gets old.

Didn't smell great, but the flavor was ok for a adjunct lager.

By far my favorite Canadian AAL that I have tried so far, and the only one that merits the extra cash. I often find this in convenience stores in the pint cans.

What you see is what you get - run of the mill, easy to drink, easy to turn your nose up at but it is perfectly fine as an adjunct sipper in normal circumstances

A very clear, light yellow color. Smells fine with no funk. Tastes smooth and crisp. Very refreshing on a hot summer day. I can drink this all day long.

Priced similar to other macro lagers. $2.99 for a tallboy (24oz) at Walmart.

Less skunky than Moosehead. I prefer Molson Golden for my go to Canadian beer. Although after a few this beer can grow on you. So give it a try. Update: Just had it on tap. So good. Give this beer a try.
