Notes / Commercial Description:
Labatt Blue Light was introduced in 1983 as a lower-alcohol, lower-calorie version of Canada’s most popular brand. Blue Light uses specially selected North American aromatic hops and the same strain of lager yeast as the one used to produce Labatt Blue. The result is a crisp, clean and delicately balanced beer, with a slight sweetness and citrus-like hop character.

Not sure why everyone hates this beer but it's probably because I am a woman that I love this beer so much. It is light and flavorful. Could drink this anywhere, anytime. Easy to drink and doesn't make me feel as full as other beers. Would not recommend eating this with food since I don't think it would bring out many flavors. Perfect for tailgating or spending a day watching sports at an arena. Would highly recommend this for women.

labatt Blue Light is very good beer. I started drinking this beer back in 1985 and i will continue to do so. Blue light has a smooth refreshing taste and enjoyable flavor!! Still brewed in Canada unlike Molson. Cheers!!

Good beer for parties and very light. Perfect for drinking games. Very clear color and good taste for a light beer. Way ahead of Miller Lite.

Labatt Blue Light has a thick, white head and a clear, bubbly straw appearance, with minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is light, sweet malt and sugar. Taste is of lightly-roasted barley malt, sugar, sweet grains, and just the slightest touch of hops. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Labatt Blue Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. This is an exceptional light beer.

First off Labatt Blue Light is my go to beer. I love this stuff. Overall I am trying to keep and open mind compared to higher end micro-brew beers, that I have recently started enjoying. This beer was out of a can. I have noticed a taste difference in the past between bottled and canned versions of this beer. (Bottled is always better, right?)
Look-It's a light colored beer. The beer had a big head that took about 5 minutes to dissipate.
Smell-The smell of this beer is not all that pleasant. It smells like malt, bread, and hops. The hops seem more noticeable the more and more I smell it.
Taste- It is a light tasting beer overall. It tastes of corn malt and very light hops. It's an incredibly smooth beer. It's definitely watery but what do you expect from a light name brand beer. It's a great tasting light beer.
Feel- It's a great drinking beer if you plan on drinking 6+. Good beer for just about any day.
Overall- It's an easy drinking beer that is easily comparable to a bud light or coors light. It is not a bottom of the barrel beer, but it's not expensive. Overall it's a great bar beer and it's one of the top ones on my list.

When I had Labatt Blue light it was on tap at a bar. The coloring was a light yellow/clear and I had the aroma of corn in it for sure and a little malty. The taste was a little blan probably because it was light and not just Labatt Blue. It was also medium carbonated.

LIGHT BEER - good solid one at that. Certainly not Awfu.. however it is a drinking beer, some of you might not know what that is.. for when you drink a bunch of beers . some may hype it up with the term "session" ..... no surprises on this canadian mass market favorite. easier than Miller Lite, less sweet, same for the nasty silver one . more flavor than Budlight, less carbonation, no joke great Sat Sun afternoon beer when in bonus time. i.e. Daytime Hockey Playoffs ... also got a free hockey stick opener.

I love this beer. It is affordable and gets the job done when needed. I live in Tennessee and am happy to find it at my local Krogers now. I used to only get it when visiting family in Michigan. The thing I love about going up north is that in the winter, we leave the beer outside and it is the perfect temperature. I love it when it is slushy.
