Labatt Bleue DryLabatt Bleue Dry

Brewed by:
Labatt Brewing Company Ltd.
Ontario, Canada

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Labatt Bleue Dry, the second addition to the Bleue family, is brewed with the same care and attention to detail as Labatt Bleue. Labatt Bleue Dry is mashed longer than regular beers to leave less carbohydrate (sugar) in the finished beer, giving a clean, crisp finish. Using select aromatic hops and a blend of the finest quality North American barley malts, this lager is clean-flavoured with no aftertaste.

Labatt Bleue Dry bought a 12 can for 14,99$

Look: Golden yellow clear color.

Smell: Grassy malt.

Taste: Same as the smell but with a newspaper touch.

Feel: Very offensive even for a dry but a 6,1% it doesn't help

So overall would I recommend it ? No

Poured from the 740 mL can (I suppose this is Canada's version of the A-B "1 extra oz" cans) into a pint glass. Immediately this produces a 1.5 inch head full of medium sized bubbles. However, the head dies off quickly and we are left with a small ring of foam and continuously rising bubbles.

Smell is typical of a Canadian Dry Beer (think basic U.S. malt liquor, such as Colt 45 or Coqui 900).

Taste is a bit sweet, bready, and crisp. Not much on the hop note, but it wasn't made to be anything close to a hop monster. Mouth feel is smooth and leaves a dry finish. There is nothing off-putting about this and it would be a great go to beer for mowing the lawn or grilling some burgers and dogs.

Reading week in Quebec. Got it from the grocery store. Drank just to get drunk. Likely will never have it again.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

A: Golden yellow. Weak little head.

S: Wet grass clippings. Not good.

T: Same as the smell with a odd skunky hop bite that reminds me a lot of Budweiser. The taste stays which is not supposed to happen with a dry beer. I find the finish offensive. Wors part of the beer.

M: Again the taste stays when it shouldn't. The carbonation is nice though.

O: Almost exactly the same as Budweiser, but maybe even worse. Im drinking this in Montreal as we speak. Molson is a much better Canadian beer, but I prefer good ol' American beer overall.
