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.

Labatt Blue Light has a thick, white head and a clear, bubbly straw appearance, with minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is light, sweet malt and sugar. Taste is of lightly-roasted barley malt, sugar, sweet grains, and just the slightest touch of hops. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Labatt Blue Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. This is an exceptional light beer.

I love this beer. It is affordable and gets the job done when needed. I live in Tennessee and am happy to find it at my local Krogers now. I used to only get it when visiting family in Michigan. The thing I love about going up north is that in the winter, we leave the beer outside and it is the perfect temperature. I love it when it is slushy.

as the crappy light mass market stuff goes, i dont hate this in a bottle thats ice cold. drafts and cans of this are almost intolerable, but the bottle can work on a hot day out in the boat or something. golf course maybe. pours watery pale yellow like so many beers like this do, decent head though. smells like basically nothing, just some weak generic malts. flavor is refreshing at least, but it has nothing intersting to call out. quick snappy finish probably helps it sell as well as it does. mouthfeel is very light and a little too carbonated, but i will give it high marks for drinkability. overall its a step up from a budlight, but so is everything. only when i have to...

Poured from can into glass.

Appearance: Almost clear. Slight hint of yellow. Too much light white head that lasted seconds with heavy lacing on the glass.

Smell: Almost no smell. Maybe some sugars and alcohol.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Very light bodied and drank like water. Hints of some malts and other grains...maybe rice. Alcohol taste was the strongest flavor and that was light.

Overall: To be honest, do not care for this beer. However I could enjoy it on a very hot day with no other drink available.
