0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Found in a 710ml can! Who in the hell makes a 710ml can? And why not 700ml, or 720ml, or 690ml? Am I missing something distinctly Québécois, eh?? What’s wrong with 500ml, or 499ml - this will always remain a mystery to me. So, furthering my exploration of dégustation for the ditch-dive homeless crowd of eastern Canada, I thought I would "déguster" Le six-point-un Labatt du jour, you know, to get a "bon conaissance" of what those on "chômage" might be drinking at any given moment... you know, the ones holed up over the metro air vents, taking in the warmth while they suffer from a city of cold. But enough of waxing poetic - this pours bright gold with that blindingly white head that all the Labatt stuff seems to have. There is a faint aroma of cardboard and burning tires. Flavour is rice wine mixed with diesel fuel. Smooth finish, though. Overall, I’m giving this one the lowest score I’ve probably ever given a beer - and it’s for good reason. If you need a bad beer to get wasted on, just go for the high-alcohol version of this! Why waste your time sipping the six-point-one percent stuff??!? It’s a major fail in both "dégustation" as well as functionality. A completely useless beer. By the way, as I come back from the bathroom, it should be noted: this stuff comes out in exactly the same colour as it goes in.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
341 ml bottle from convenience store in Levis, QC. Pours a clear lightish yellow gold with white cap. Vegetal corny aroma with some half decent grassiness thrown in. Sweet corn and grains in the flavour with little of the hoped for grassy bitterness but alcohol reasonably apparent. Quite fizzy. There are worse macros but this is still very bad.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
pours a pale yellow colour with a white head that quickly fades into nothingness. not much in the aroma. straw, grass, corn, typical macro. taste is terrible. especially if even slightly warmed. this beer is what most of my friends drink, and swear by. a disgusting beer if i’ve ever had one!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours pale gold into a shaker. White crackling head recedes to whisper rim. Sweet corn aromas. Crisp and sour upfront turning to a sharp, slightly pleasant alcohol burn before the lasting sour malt finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz - Purchased at gas station after a Habs game. I liiked it more than the straight up Blue, and if it was a higher percent I didn’t notice. Good, fresh beer with more intrigue than most American macrobrews.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle: Poured a golden yellow color lager with a small bubbly white head with no retention. Aroma of adjunct is quite powerful and repulsing. Taste is sweet with some foul adjunct and corn traces. Worse then I had imagined and way worse then the regular Blue.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow body with a tiny white head. Alcoholic grainy high gravity brew smell. Sweet dilute grain flavour, light alcohol and dilute grains. Average to thin palate. Poor.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Thanks Len Senior! Pours golden yellow with a blast of short lived white froth. End result is a thin layer of foam and a fine ring around the collar. Aromas are canned cream corn, lettuce, the vegetable isle at Loblaws, old fading hops. Tastes sweet and distantly hoppy, stale corn and paper as well. Not my cup of..........well.........beer. Finishes watery with lots of booze. Wow, what a shame its brewed a block from my house and I can’t get it.
