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.

24oz can for about $2.50. Had straight from the can, so I'll skip the appearance -- based on what I've seen in pictures, it looks pretty blah.

Smell: A very faint grain and corn sweetness. Nothing skunky or off-putting, but there's not much going on.

Taste: Almost like nothingness... honestly. Really does drink like carbonated water, but there's a slight bit of grains and corn sweetness... VERY slight. I don't think I've had a beer with such little flavor. There's nothing off about it at least, which makes it really drinkable. Extremely light, but pleasant with its slightly sweet flavor.

No hops to taste, no malt flavors that you'd TYPICALLY get in a craft beer... just a mild cereal grain flavor, with corn, and subtle sweetness. It costs a bit more than a made-in-America adjunct lager, and it tastes basically the same. Still, I think I'd choose a Labatt Light over a Bud Light, Coors Light, or even Miller Lite.
