Pour from a 12oz bottle. Lager look. Smell of grain, corn, mineral water. Taste is lightly sweet grain, corn, a bitter / mineral taste in the finish. Very light. It is what it is.

Wet hay, rice, sawdust and corn to the nose faint hops somewhere. Flavor not dissimilar. Not my favorite 0.5.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle @ home tossed via courtesy of BlackIPA. Tasted during the Pussypete presents Molson/Labatt Grand Tasting 2013 in my parent’s basement. Cheers! Titled Labatt Blue Non-alcoholic. Less than 0.5% abv. Pours a golden appearance with no head. Really bland and watery, a bit corny, nothing aroma. Lemon watery, super bland flavor. Not offensive but watery and bland as fuck. No boost offered.

Ah. 0.5% grocery store beers. Takes me back to my deranged childhood where 3 of us 12 year old neerdowells purchased 2-24s of these, and deduced that we could get drunk by pounding 15-20 of these. The result was well-watered fir trees in a public park. Oh yeah, you want me to rate this. Watery blue. Points for colour.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
341 ml bottle from Save Easy. Pours a clear yellow/gold with small white head and lots of big bubbles stuck to the side. Aroma is rather nasty graininess. Flavour has a chemically grain taste. There are definitely better low/non alcohol choices out there.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Single can from a Hull convenient store. Pours a light golden colour with a white cap that leaves tiny bubble lacing and a decent ring around the collar. The nose is grainy with notes of honey. Same for the taste with hints of watered-down molasses in the aftertaste. So, does not taste like a pilsener (nor beer), but is not as light as expected.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Found at an Iqaluit supermarket - possibly the only time such a thing would happen! Has a very light seven-up yellow body with heavy carbonation and very little head. Aroma is bad lager instead of bready non-alc, so it gets a point for that. Flavour is light water with a hint of bread and sourness, overpowered by heavy carbonation. This isn’t the worst non-alc I’ve tried - that’s about all I can say that’s positive about it.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
341mL bottle from a Forwell’s Variety store. Pours a clear yellow with a white surface film. Aroma is actually not revolting, reminds me of how boiling wort smells, that nice sweet barley aroma. Flavour is identical, finishing quickly and fizzling out like Perrier. Not overly sweet like most low alcohol beers are. This is actually drinkable, though it doesn’t hold a candle to Labatt Nordic.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2011 340ml returnable twist-off. It was not called this rather "Labatt Blue Non Alcoholic Malt Beverage"
The flavor has a slight bit of hops, malt, and metal coin.
It is better than soda at least.
