12 oz. Can, pale yellow-gold pour with a white, quick disappearing cover, lots of carbonation, a little malt, a bit of malt/corn? sweetness, some corn with fusel alcohol on the nose, pretty much rhe same for flavor with less corn, hardly any bitterness but the tongue is left sort of dry (from the alcohol), this beer had a very light aroma and flavor, a beer that is ok to drink with pizza, etc., I find this beer easier to drink very cold as the fusel alcohol is more pronounced when the beer had warmed up, nothing special here.

I poured a 24oz can into a one liter mug. There was no decipherable freshness date. It cost $1.81 ($0.08 per ounce).

Appearance: Crystal clear, pale white gold hue. Plenty of carbonation visible. Initially pours to a large, fluffy, bright white head, but it fizzles away almost completely and leaves little lacing on the glass.

Smell: Muted, mild aroma of generic lager with some corn presence.

Taste: I probably should rate Labatt Blue Light a little lower than Iím going to since itís woefully bland. However, I prefer bland to offensive, and for a beer to score a 3 or worse for me, it has to be a struggle to drink. While there really arenít many redeeming qualities to this beer, itís at least easy to get down. I think Iíve built up a tolerance to adjunct macro lagers, as this flavor profile doesnít repulse me all that much (well, maybe the first swig or two).

This seems to have a smidge of true pilsner quality to it than most light beers of the caliber. Slightly sweet taste of pale grain throughout the swig. I do detect some toasted corn and a hint of metallic flavor in the aftertaste, but it all homogenizes quickly. What this ends up tasting like it exactly what it is: light fizzy yellow beer. The most prominent flavor here is its lack of flavor, or maybe an actual watery taste. While that may sound repulsive, I found it to be tolerable.

Drinkability: I thought it might be a challenge to get through an entire 24oz serving of Labatt Blue Light, but I found myself slugging it down rather quickly. Itís a thin body for sure, with a flat, watery texture. Though bubbly at first, it calms down fast and leads to a smooth finish. At 4% ABV itís exactly what youíd expect on all accounts. If thereís nothing else available this would at least would be drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 Description is misleading. "Crisp and clean" means the taste is gone before you can realize it was bad. "A hint of aromatic hop" means good luck detecting any through the corn. Not a good beer, but at least itís not repulsive.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Cabin fridge rate. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a nice one finger fizzy white head that actually left a bit of lacing. The nose is pretty typical, just a light note of corn and a slight hay like quality. Not offensive at all, just boring. The flavor is much the same way, light corn, just a touch of light hop extract on the finish, fairly clean really. Thereís a slight sweetness throughout, but not so much that it gets in the way Light bodied and fizzy with a short crisp finish. This isnít bad among the general Macro Light category.

Bottle. Pours a perfectly clear light gold with effectively no head. Nose is slightly sweet with a tad bit of skunky in there. Taste is light and slightly sweet but with very little flavor. Canadaís Bud Light.

Can at in-lawsí over Christmas. Crisp and cold. Mild flavor is not completely terrible. I would not want to try this at a temperature above 38.

Can at Momís on Thanksgiving. Clear yellow pour with a huge white head. Aroma of malt and lager yeast. Malty and watery flavor with lager yeast before a crisp finish.
