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.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a pale, clear color with two fingers of bubbly white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Minimal spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Average-to-below average retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled corn, skunky malts, pilsner notes, honey, grass and cereal.

Tasted similar to the nose. Got honey, corn malts, sourdough bread, grass, cereal, light banana and faint Circus Peanuts.

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, somewhat skunky finish. Somewhat refreshing.

Not a bad American Adjunct Lager, but not great.
