As a light summer radler, it's a reasonably good beer.

Can poured into a pint glass. Lives up to its name. Heavy on the grapefruit in the scent and very tart in the taste. Tartness makes it slightly difficult to drink, but it was 80 degrees out and it was drinkable enough.

So I got to try this at Joey's on Main Street in Rochester New York. The smell is quite grapefruit. Cloudy like as if it's unfiltered zero carbonation and almost no Laceing. Mouthfeel is quite thin but expected from a light beer. Overall it was quite intriguing I only wish the smell of the grapefruit would have transferred over better to the pallet. But it is the freshest light beer I've ever tasted.

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

Appearance: Clear golden until I disturbed the sediment, which then left it surprisingly hazy. A finger-thick bright white head rose up quickly but then almost as readily settles into nothing more than a collar.

Aroma: Bright grapefruit. It's seemingly authentic. A little malt backs it.

Flavor: More malt than the aroma suggests, with a dampened grapefruit character. Not unlike their Blue Light Lime, the acidity is kept in check, although I'm not sure how well that really works. A bit more tang might be nice, and then again it might be too much, but the aroma had me expecting a bit of zing. Regardless, it's balanced and drinkable with a bit of extra character that makes it more than a "light beer".

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

Overall: The aroma is great but the flavor doesn't quite follow through, although that can't be considered a flaw at all. It's otherwise clean, well balanced, and drinkable. Every beer has it's own time and place!
