Labatt Brewing Company Ltd.
Ontario, Canada

Style: Light Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

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.

From my next door neighbor.

Poured from a can into a mug, served at fridge temp.

yellow with 1 finger white head that disappears. No lacing.

aroma hops & yeast.

mouthfeel: thin

taste: malt with some corn sweetness, not much hops. Faint mustiness on the aftertaste.

notes: this is product. weak, insip, boring. hated it. Amazingly this beer sells like crazy here in Rochester which makes no sense as Genny is much better, and a lot cheaper.

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.
