1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Really crisp with no apparent malt flavor but a slight undertow (and not in the Tool definition of Undertow by any means) of hop flavor. Dry and finishes watery. Better than some macros but not very appetizing, even ice cold on tap.

Although there is a slightly detectable flavour there is no real finish, barely any body. They need to add some more hops to add aroma and palate. Great beer if you plan on drinking alot !

As far as the mass-produced standards such as Bud/Miller/Coors/Labatt/Molson, this is one of the better ones. Crisp, easy to drink with a slight sweet taste. A good beer to drink while watching a hockey game! People, the Labatt Blue in the U.S. is the SAME beer as in Canada. They don’t change anything in the recipe. The label on the bottle may be different, but the beer is the same.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Though very light in flavor it does have that little tiny bit of hop bitterness to establish itself as a beer in nature. This was my common fair as a frosh in college, cheap,availible, easy drinking and better than the likes of Bud and Coors...it’s a solid OK, but little more.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 This beer has to be drank in Canada. The Canadian version of Blue is a hell of a lot better than the American version. It is a great beer, never gives me gas the next day, and it never gives me a hangover. A true beer for all occasions(5/4/7/5/15).--- I figured it’s about time to re-rate this. 12 ounce can. The aroma is fruity, sweet, cidery with acetaldehyde. Not much else happening in the nose. Transparent yellow body with a small, quickly dissipating white head that leaves no lacing. Starts grainy and cidery with lots of corn and apple. Light bodied. Finishes with light bitter grassiness. Somewhat tart and astringent. Weird.

Without a doubt, this is my favorite beer. It goes good with just about anything.....chips, pizza, brats, burgers, wings, hell, even Doritos don’t kill it. For the record, I was so loaded once I actually had it in cereal instead of milk.
