COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
John Labatt Classic was introduced in 1983 as Canada’s only national domestic “premium beer”. It is Krausen-brewed (slow, low temperature with a secondary fermentation process) and has a longer cold-aging process. Classic uses all-malt and a unique blend of western-grown North American hops, providing a smooth, full flavour product with a true malt taste that is slightly sweet. Editor's Note: Is this only available in the US?

I really liked this stuff, good and malty. Only had it during a long weekend in Toronto and haven’t been able to find it stateside. If you’re north of the border, have a Rickard’s and then switch to this stuff.

A great Holiday gift from Labatt to Beer Drinkers everywhere. Absolutely above par in every way. Came across it in a 'gift pack', and was won over completely.

Had been buying this beer for over 20 years. I am trying to find out why it was retired?
