Well... This is a unique one. It's apparently beer that is flavored with lime. I don't really get the taste of beer coming through.

This is like Corona that comes with lime already in it, except it's an interpretation by Labatt. It has a nice scent to it.

The lime flavoring tastes a bit artificial but I'm guessing they just put the type of lime juice you'd find at the store that comes in the green plastic lime bottle intinto it.

Not the best but not the worst. If you like Corona with lime, you might like this.

Pours very pale yellow with a 2 inch white head. Moderate lacing.

Strong aroma of lime, smells sweet.

Taste is lime, not much else.

Light bodied, thin and watery. Very little carbonation. Dry, slightly bitter finish.

Not bad for a light beer albeit, not as good as Labatt Light grapefruit.

(24 oz can, B058... purchased cold... poured into a 28 oz mug)

L: polished-clear, pale yellow-gold liquid; tons of white foam on pour, tight, cottony pad... head fizzles out rather quick; not really any lace, the lil boogs slip away

S: good bit of lime aroma dominating its scent, almost smells real; really smells more like Sprite with a lil (corn-fed) beer mixed in... smells alright for what it smells like, a shandy

T: not gonna lie, a relatively delightful flavor at first: lime-infused, lightly-doughy malt base; clean and dry on the outflow, though the finish has the faintest color to it like a mix between a lime sweet-tart candy / lime air freshener... humming aftertaste of lime and cereal, like Trix; dry, doughy

F: very soft suds, pillowy texture and flow, disappearing finish... maybe a delicate touch of residual lime syrup slickness? who knows?... light and easy-drinking, even when drinking at cellar temp

O: tried it just to try it once... it wasn't too too dissimilar to a Mexican beer with actual limes shoved in the bottle (minus real citrus acidity); kind of surprising and thankful it didn't taste more glaringly artificial... maybe this is what light beers need - flavor infusion - so what...

24 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 6/22/2018. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a small fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a minimal spotty lace cap that linger. Light spotty lacing on the, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart lime juice, citrus peel/zest, cracker, corn, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of limes, pale malt/grains, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart lime juice, citrus peel/zest, cracker, corn, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, floral, grassy, zesty bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lightly tart lime juice, citrus peel/zest, cracker, corn, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of limes, pale malt/grains, and light earthy hop flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with no yeasty notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a nice fruited light lager. All around nice robustness and balance of limes, pale malt/grains, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and not too watery for the ABV. Great balance between vibrant limes and pils malt/grains; with solid earthy hop presence for the style. Not overdone on adjuncts. A nicely enjoyable offering, and great style example. Would be great for summer.

Not bad. Didn’t find the lime flavor overpowering. Tasted more at the end of each sip than at the beginning. Refreshing beer for a hot summer day. Very watery mouthfeel so it goes right down. Might have it again sometime. Update : I did have it again.Cheers.

Well, it looks like even Canadian brewers are jumping on the fad that is light lagers with lime flavoring. I went into this review knowing full well that this wasn't going to be a high quality beer that I'd be reviewing, but a part of me wanted to know how it would stack up against Bud Light Lime and its ilk. Why? Who knows, but that's just the way my mind works.

Labatt Light Lime pours a yellow/gold color. A fizzy, sudsy head (less than a pinky's worth) forms and thins out in a little under 30 seconds. There was quite a collection of fizzy "soda" bubbles on the side of the glass. The aroma was of sweet citrus and lime, with some light grain and vegetable smell. As mentioned, the beer is indeed fizzy, and overall feels pretty thin on the palette. The light citric/lime flavor is the most dominant note here, but the beer is still pretty watery even with that lime presence. There are some grain and vegetable flavors detectable behind the lime, but that's about it. The aftertaste is clean and almost non existant except for some non-descript dryness, and there is no alcoholic warmth at all in this beer.

Indeed, not a high quality beer at all. It is easy to drink, but I would say this is more lime than beer. Save for a summer day thirst quencher when you need something to whet your whistle and nothing more.

This is up there with the absolute worst beers I've ever had.

It pours like you'd expect, clear and gold, with a quickly dissipating head.

This smells so unbelievably artificial, like syrupy and saccharine lime, with corn syrup and skunk.

This honestly tastes terrible. It's revolting, with an overly artificial and unpleasant lime flavor, just out whatever the base light lager tastes like. I get some sweet corn and syrupyness This isn't even all that crisp, which is what the style is supposed to be.

This is just sad. There's no reason at all to drink this.

Labatt Blue Light Lime smell puts you in the mind set of lemon lime soda. Now for the taste , it is Lime, with some beer taste. This brew has a nice smooth lime taste to it. Not much else to say. The mouthfeel of Labatt Blue Light Lime, is Light , Smooth, clean and refreshing. This is a nice smooth brew to drink on a hot day. There is nothing overpowering about this brew.

Labatt Blue Light Lime | Labatt Brewing Company Ltd. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's head is non-existent, with minimal lacing,and a clear pale golden body.

I smell lemon-lime soda,basically. This is kind of expected per this style, as I review WITHIN THE STYLE.

Tastes like a less limey Bud Light with Lime. Not to say this is a bad thing per se if its in the high 80's with well over 50% humidity.

The mouthfeel here is light and crisp.

Overall, I'l give Labatt Blue Light Lime | Labatt Brewing Company Ltd. a 3 rating. Nothing great, but nothing awful for what it is.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
S: Light to moderate aromas of artificial lime are present in the nose. It poured with a thin collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
T: The taste follows the smell, having initial flavors of artificial lime but these quickly dissipated, leaving flavors of grainy malts.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer would have been more comparable to Bud Light Lime if the lime flavor didn't quickly disappear from the taste.
