Labatt Blue LightLabatt Blue Light

Brewed by:
Labatt Brewing Company Ltd.
Ontario, Canada

Style: Light Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Eye Candy: Transparent yellow-like, not even yellow..

The nose knows: let Blue Light 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 Light.

Bender Factor:If for some reason you decide that tonight is crappy Canadian beer night, Molson Canadian is the best choice. Everyone here in Buffalo thinks that Blue/Blue Light 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. That and the dude on hockey night.

Had a can of this and a can of Michelob Light at a Bluejackets game. Back and forth I went between the two, back and forth, Labatt and Michelob, Michelob and Labatt. There literally was no difference. Both had next to no aroma or flavor. Both sucked sour frog ass. Taste tests between two crappy beers are not fun. At least they were free.

Despite being thirsty and there being only this and hard liquor, I regret trying to swallow even one mouthfeel. It has no head, is yellow, and smells like beer and soap detergent. The taste is acidic water. Metallic ugh! aftertaste.Fizzy carbonation, watery.
