Style: Light Lager

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 one pours a clear yellow, basically looks like water. Looks quite fizzy.

Smells metallic, and like not much else. Maybe some creamed corn.

Tastes metallic too, and maybe a little like creamed corn. It's kind of grainy, but the carbonation takes over the flavor, it's all you get. It's honestly like really gross metallic seltzer.

This one is really light bodied, with a very high level of carbonation.

Pass.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A very clear straw color. Looks like a light ginger ale.

honey malt and lots of corn and a starchy aroma. Almost has a wax smell to it like an unscented candle.

Very sweet with a little bit of corn. Sort of like frosted flakes with a tiny bit of hop flavoring thrown in.

Very light feel. Watery and high carbonation like soda.

For a major light lager, it's not bad compared to some of the others. It lacks flavor. Just mostly sweet and light.
