Awful. Just awful. At least other awful beers will get me a little buzzed. Tastes like I’m drinking beer flavored carbonated water. Why would anyone drink this.

Overall very close to water in the flavor and on the palate. Its mostly like drinking a carbonated water. This is probable the most flavorless, bland beer I’ve had. Its not so much it taste like corn and grain, just that there is very little of those flavors too. Just a faded hint of caramel with a hint of plastic. Very light caramel color. Actually this could be an alternative to seltzer/carbonated water and wanted to have a beer like taste. Wasn’t expecting anything good here, but interesting to see what the bottom of the barrel of beer is like after trying the top.

Cannette 355ml. 0.5%. Achetée une fois, pendant la prise d’antibiotiques....plus jamais. Horrible .5, arrière goût bizarre, pas bon. Pas une bonne expérience.

Also known here is Quebec as Labatt Bleue Pilsener Désalcoolisée. Both a 6-pack of this for a party and it was actually not bad from the can. Now the real test, poured in a glass. Decent foamy white head that has good retention and lots of lacing. The beer itself is pale golden with lots of big bubbles stuck to the glass. Very mild malt nose with notes of chemical hops. Same of the taste... a little grainy with hints of honey, but overall, quite mild. So, a decent no-alcohol brew for those times when you want to drink all night and drive home whenever.

(Note: reviewing this beer is the RateBeer equivalent of a kamikaze. Not the alcoholic beverage, but the Japanese plane "taking one for the team" by careening into a ship or mountain or other plane. Bear with me.) The color is a yellow, clear concoction. Lots of fizzy little bubbles floating upward like so much malty flotsam. Has a bizarre film at the top, much like a urine-colored oilslick. The smell is like someone poured a bowl of Rice Krispies. It is neither inspiring, nor vomit-repelling. What a subpar, malty smell. Come on Labatt, you’re better than that. If I were a Mormon I would probably be disgusted as to how weak this beer is. The beer smells like a Goya Malta, but has none of its swarthy charm. It’s really as if somone poured a bowl of Corn Flakes into a pint glass and forced me to drink it. This is the closest to cereal I have ever experienced from a beer. I think I could get more drunk off of Scope. This tastes like the worst brand of bland Chinese pilsner you could ever think of, without the advantage of being a social lubricant. Has about the same mouthfeel as a bottle of Snapple, sans the flavor. Did I mention that there is more alcohol in a Stridex pad? I could possibly be trafficking in hyperbole to call this the worst beer I have ever had. After all, I have had Beast Ice, Narragansett, Mad Dog 20/20, The Blue Bull, and even Bud. This beer might have been wonderful if I lived during Prohibition, when 0.5% ABV might have made me slightly randy, but in 2006, it’s utter crap. Worst. Beer. Ever.

The only non-alcoholic beer I have ever had....and thankfully the last. I’d rather drink...nothing than this. Tastes terrible, smells awful.

Retired? Oh god... so who knows how long this bottle was sitting around before I tried it. Anyway, it was pretty much what I expected. Strange, sweet corn and grain. Really quite bad.

[1371-20080518] 11.5floz. Fishy pond water aroma with a bit of creamed corn. Clear, pale pale tan body with quick white bubbles. More creamed corn in the flavour. Light bubbly body. Better cold and possibly my cheapest beer ever, though not quite the worst.
($0.89 from Premier Gourmet)

Bought this at the Sobeys on Kenaston in Winnipeg. Sold in 341 ml bottles, just like the real thing. The Label also looks a lot like the real Labatt Blue (with the exception of a large "de-alcoholized" label on the right hand side). The beer itself sucked. It smelled bad, and made me cringe as soon as the liquid touched my tongue.
