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.

This beer pours a super light golden color that looks like a beer cut with water. The head is 3 fingers, fluffy and foamy. Retention is actually fairly good and there is a little bit of spotted lacing.

The smell is almost non existent. There is a hint of grain and literally nothing else.

Taste is the same. Grainy throughout with some corn and then some weird off flavor on this finish that reminds me of cardboard.

Feel is super light and watery. Easy drinking, but then again so is water.

Overall gross. I can do some AALs and light beers from time to time, but not this one. And to top it off they screw you out of .5 oz as their bottles are only 11.5 oz.

Pale yellow, headless, odourless, characterless. Available everywhere in Ontario. Not offensive, but not much point in it either. Decent light beers are hard to come by and this ain't one of them. But it's not as bad as those things being flogged as low-carb beers either. Thank goodness for small mercies.
