2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
starting drinking beer with (labatt) "50",as did most people who grew up in the same part of montreal.
maybe good high school memories are getting the best of me,but i do not find this all that bad;still think it would go fine after a hockey game or playing poker with friends.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Not bad, the kind of watery beer that is totally okay and not unpleasant after a long day. Yellow pour, grassy-fruity aroma, light malty taste with a light hop finish and good balance. Great townie bar beer.

My friendís into craft beer and this is his favourite macro. Iíve tried to like this, I really have, but it has the strongest cardboard flavour of any beer Iíve ever tried. Maybe it would be good fishing? Seems like the flavours would mix well with a fish gut aroma.

Looks like Iím one of the few people that likes this beer. I was always told to stay away from this beer, because the 50 in the name refers to the minimum age to drink it. Iím now 52, so I tried it. just kidding. When OKeefe went out of business, I was forced to find a new ale, I tried both Molson Export and Labatt 50 and while I prefer the Molson, thereís nothing wrong with this beer. A nice ale with a mild bitterness.

12 oz. bottle @ Reubenís (not the nice one). The waiter warned me that it was an old manís beer. I guess old men like terrible beer because this tastes all sorts of funky. Glad that I can just check it off.

The Beer Store 473ml can: Pours a golden color with an OK looking white head. Aroma is pale malt and some sugar. Taste is way better than I was expecting. Light and it goes down very smoothly. Inoffensive and uncomplex, but perfectly drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml brown bottle. Golden pour, white head with light lacing. Fruity nose, some slight lemon- citrus there. Taste is grainy, dry, light bitterness at the end. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Not terribly exciting, a macro through and through, but a nostalgia brand for me as my dad used to always keep this beer around the house.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally rated July 2005. Old-timer-beer-gone-popular-again-with-the-young-c Pours a golden colour with a small white head and medium retention. The carbonation is active and the lacing is minimal. The nose is strong with bitterness and has a mild scent of malt thrown in there. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. The taste is pretty mild with grain malt and light bitterness. Goes down very well. This is the go-to beer I usually take when I go in bars, and has a better hop finish than all other macros found. One of Labattís better products for sure (and I still drink it regularly nowadays in 2012).

Not horrible. You can actually detect some hops in the flavour here, then a sweet bready aftertaste. Inoffensive.
