Can. This is almost sickly sweet, but I would rather this then a Budwesier, I think. Tastes of corn syrup all the way through and finishes with a very sweet aftertaste that coats the tongue. Tolerable.

Labatt Blue pours a light golden yellow with a big foamy head. It has good carbonation and clarity. The aroma is light with rice cereal malts and grassy straw like hops. The flavor is delicate with some sweet cereal malts up front that turn dry with a crisp citrusy bitter finish.

Very faint fruity taste part of the reason I like this beer is because it leaves a nice aftertaste

From the archives. Was looking through pictures and noticed that I had a pint in Niagara Falls. Noted, that this is simple pale lager. Drinkable.

On tap. Clear dark golden with no head. "Flavors" are corn syrup and cardboard with fruity and minerals notes. Medium body, lively carbonation, thin texture.

Transfered from BA review on 2-17-12 - Poured from can into pint glass Appearance - Pours a light golden color with a billowy white head with huge carbonation bubbles entrapped within. The head fades quickly leaving a very light amount of lacing. Smell - Corn is the main aroma detected with a slight hint of caramel sweetness in the background. Taste - A sweeter taste first meet the tongue. Mainly corn in nature. The flavor however slowly bitters as time goes on and leaves a rather subdued taste in the mouth; not a bad one just bitterness. Mouthfeel - A bit on the thin side with lots of carbonation. Nothing to shout about. Overall - It is very easy to drink. Its subtle flavor profile and light body and aromas make it very easy to down; like water. Likely would be good on a very hot day when served very cold, otherwise nothing to pine over and just pretty ordinary.

I just recently found the notes on this one as I’ve had this more than enough times over the years. This was poured into a pilsener and a pint glass at various times. I’ve had this in the bottle and from the can. When this is poured, the appearance was a transparent golden yellow with strings of carbonation seen rising at a drastic pace. There is a one finger white foamy head that fizzles within seconds and leaves no lacing. The smell is weak through super light corn and rice adjuncts. The taste is mainly just corn sweet with a crisp corn/rice aftertaste and no finish. On the palate, it sat extremely light for the style and had a carbonation that is fairly smooth. It did have an extremely good sessionability about it. Overall, though not exactly my cup of tea, I understand this enough to say its not bad for the style but its not one I’d generally seek out. Probably shotgun one at a party if it was served, but other than that, it is what it is.

Great shotgun beer challenge choice. Goes down easy and is cheap. Really cool promotions.

Drinking labatt for nhl playoffs. Its a canadian version of Budweiser. Would recommend if you plan on drinking heavy.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Nose is... Aromas are malty, with a hint of citrus. High carbonation, light body. Quite refreshing, especially on a birthday night ! :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
