COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Labatt Select is brewed to be light, and has a unique taste with only 99 calories per bottle and 4.2% alcohol by volume. Fermented longer at lower temperatures to give a smooth, clean taste, Select uses unique North American aromatic hops that impart a delicate flavour and aroma. Lightly roasted specialty malt contributes to the overall body and balance of this unique product, providing a delicate hop aroma and flavour that is complemented by a soft finish.

I guess for low carb it isnít bad but.. Pours a nice yellow with a head that disappears in seconds. Way over-carbonated, which distracted from the taste.

That lovely light beer yellow color, really carbonated and watery. Doesnít have a whole lot of taste. This one said it was low carb, probably the only thing good about it.

Been out of the area where this crap was sold for a couple of years. Sad to see it has been given the gold watch that is usually given to reitred workers. From what I remember, it was pretty much a fake tasted Blue Light. That being said, still manhadles any shit from Coors.

It pours a light golden color. Itís very clean and clear with a good amount of carbonation that makes a big white head. It has lots of big bubbles that leave great lacing on the glass. A light cereal, like rice chex makes up the aroma and flavor. There seems to be some faint grassy hops in the flavor as well. Fizzy carbonation gives it a bit of a bite on the tongue. The finish is quick clean and dry. Overall I would say that it has the most flavor of the low carbohydrate beers.

one of the better tries at getting a "helpful low cal drink this and dont get fat" brews. id still rather drink beer with flavor and have to run/work it off.

Bottled, Not much really to say it has really no odor or no taste. Verythin for my taste. Not the worst thing I ever drank but itís not that good.

Very unoffensive, I suppose. Not sure what else to say about it, since it doesnít taste or smell like anything, doesnít look like much, and is as thin as water. If you want to drink alcohol but want to keep the carbs and calories to a minimum, this fits the bill. If you want "beer", get something else. At least Miller Lite is a decent compromise, since it is nearly as light as this but still resembles beer in appearance and flavor. I got this as part of a mixed Labatt case, thinking some non-beerheads would drink it, but there was a bunch of Select and Blue Light left over, so I had to try it. Maybe Iím being ectra harsh because I had a couple of Labatt Canadian Ales before sampling the Select, but it only qualifies as beer in a technical sense. At least it isnít as ridiculously carbonated as some ultra lights.

The aroma was week, but had hint of metallic smell to it...Which is odd since it came from a bottle. The apperance was light yellow, the head was thin white and faded quick. Flavor was thin. Pretty poor over all. If I hadnít read the label I would have thought this was just another thin American Marco light beer. Oh, well.

I tell you what..........if I had to "select" a low carb, or low alcohol lager, this would be the one. That said, I donít anticipate having to "select" one to drink any time soon. So, ultimately, I wonít be "selecting" this one any time soon. ALmost too poor to rate. Pale, fizzy, cardboard, corn in all areas. Rough.

Given the type of beer this is (macrobrew/ultra light) this beer is excellent. Donít expect a Blue/light flavor - this tastes more like a lite version of Labatt Crystal. If your choices are this, Mic Ultra, Bud Select, Miller lite, etc, go for this.
