Bottle from my buddy Jon- Thanks Jonny! Deeper shade of gold pour with a creamy white cap. Nose of grains and bread crust, a bit of lemon and grassy hops. Sweet grainy taste with some fruitiness and white bread. A bit of a citric bite leads into the finish. Ok. Thanks Jon!

This beer smelled AWFUL. It smelled like a skunked heineken and it just had a very plain and dull taste. Haven’t found a "blonde ale" that I’ve like yet.

A decent but standard golden ale. Aroma was so so. LIght honey, bread and pale malt. Pour was a light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was nicely carbonated and a little bland. Biscuit and light malt with a dry and flavorless aftertaste. So so beer.

Bottle - Pours a light golden color with a small white. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor is grain and herbal hops. There is a little more flavor in this beer than the regular Blue. Not much, but just a little more. Worth a try.

Pours light amber with a white head. Has the aroma of grain and malt with a hint of caramel. The flavor is somewhat grain driven with little malt backbone. Surprisingly smooth. I think this is the first labatt beer Ive had that isn’t too watery, YES!!!!!!!!

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Bottle from sampler case at Sams Club. Poured clear light amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Light grassy citrus aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a bitter finish of short duration. Drinkable summer brew.

Straw color with a moderate yellowish off-white head. Grits and light greens scents. The more I sniff the worse it seems to get, so I stopped prior to this getting a 1. LIght herbal honey start. Some herbal and slightly minty hops in the middles. Cloying, funky sweetness in the finish that like the scent drags this one down. Not refreshing. Reminds me of a bleached blond that has spent way too much time in the sun.

I know Canada sucks, but come on. This tastes like corn water mixed with aluminium. Seriously. And this is supposed to be a special import?

Golden in color with a corn aroma. Some sweetness and alittle more body than the ’Blue’. Crisp.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Thick rocky head, bubbly, golden, good retention. Decent grassy aroma along with some corn, honey palate, along with grain, somewhat bland in the taste department, but a gritty feel, some alcohol showed through, decent body, thanks for trade Ron!
