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 tried this beer in a bar because they didn t had much option

The smell of Labbat Blue smells like a Pilsner but the smell is not that great

The look the beer looks really light.

Now about the taste. Really disappointing. Does't taste like Pilsner at all. It's like a copy. This is not the real deal here. Labbat you can do better on this beer

Would I recommend it ? As a Pilsner ... No , but if you are at the bar with some friend you can always have a glasse of it.
