bottle. Poured clear pale amber with a quick vanishing white head. Aroma of adjunct grain. Mouthfeel is light, with smooth carbonation. A sweetish alcoholy grainy flavour. Doesn’t stand up to the original Blue.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally rated September 2005. Bought a 40 oz. bottle of this stuff as it came cheaper than buying the big can. This is the stuff my girlfriend would drink at bars when she was young, to get a kick faster and on the affordable side. Glad she liked it, so she could help me with this big bottle. Pours a golden pale yellow colour with a nice white foamy head. Retention is decent, but no lacing is left at all. The nose is composed of sweet malt for the biggest part and some bitter hop thrown in there. Medium bodied brew. The taste starts off slightly bitter, then goes sweet in the middle to then end on a grainy finish. The aftertaste is mildly dry and the grain lingers for a while. Very nice and smooth, without any taste of alcohol at any time. Recommended if you like the grain malt, a buzz and a stronger lager without a burn.

Very little taste, like its sister Labatt Blue. Unfortunately, it tastes a little more than its non-dry counterpart, but the taste that comes out is that of alcohol, which is not what I’m looking for in a lager.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
"Blue Dry". 341 ml twist off bottle form Manitoba.
It pours a clear gold with a fizzy white head.
Smell is corn, rotten fruit, and alcohol.
Taste is corn, metal, sweetness, not really that dry of a finish but I would think some corn syrup was added. No hops.
It is like a glorified malt liquor, it isn’t awful and has a great mouthfeel actually but it is still an adjunct laden brew.

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.

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.
