Labatt Brewing Co. "Labatt Blue Light Shandy"
12 fl. oz. clear glass bottle, production coded but without freshness dating

Appearance: Pours a just slightly hazy straw-gold body beneath a finger-thick bright white that drops steadily to a thin but solid surface covering. Slightly better than average lacing.

Aroma: Lemon and ginger. I don't know that there's any ginger there, it's not listed on the label, but I'm given the suggestion of it. It reads "PREMIUM LIGHT BEER WITH NATURAL LEMON FLAVOR AND CARAMEL COLOR ADDED". I could probably do without the coloring.

Flavor: Probably the dullest of the flavored "Blue Light" beers, it offers grainy malt and lemon. Not unlike the others, the expected acidity is held back (which may or may not be a good thing, we'll probably never know). It's balanced, and drinkable, but uninspiring. I guess it's better to err on the side of caution.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium in body with a standard carbonation level that gives a delicate bristle to the palate.

Overall: A fairly basic lemon-accented beer that retains the characteristics of a beer rather than becoming more of a "lemon drink" - so kudos for that. On a hot day my friend Cool Hand Luke and I could drink 40 of these each!

Labatt Blue Light Shandy | Labatt Brewing Company Ltd. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is absent, with no lacing, and a hazy yellow body.


Smells like some Country Time lemonade. Straight up!

I taste lemon seltzer water.

The mouthfeel I'm getting is very light and clean.

Overall, I'll rate Labatt Blue Light Shandy | Labatt Brewing Company Ltd. with a 3. Not one of my summer picks, but its new as of this writing&needed some attention IMO. This honestly would hit the spot on a scorching, asphyx-iatingly humid day.
