This was the first beer I have ever drank. It's not bad for a corn brew. Although I heard it could be rice as well. It does have that 'labatt's' taste under tone to it. Which I taste in pretty much all of their beers.(maybe they shouldn't use the same vat for everything) It is an okay beer for a widely available commercial brew. I got the following from a friend of mine who really wanted to rate the beer.
Nate (4296) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2002
'Tonight I am sampling 12 bottles of Labatt's 50, this fine beer features preservatives and 5.0% alcohol. Twelve of them usually gets you drunk. It has a nutty/ass flavor, and after 3 or 4 will eventually go down smooth. It's well complemented by cigarettes and internet porn. I would rate this x out of y. It is beer in the most ambiguous sense of the word. I'll probably sample more tomorrow, for to truly know a beer one must sample many batches over several years. It's a wonderful excuse to take up alcoholism.'
Standard macro aroma, but with a little more malty, citrusy sweetness. No head. Light straw color. High fizziness and light watery body. Pretty bland in taste. Bitter adjunct finish and after. Doesn't have much to offer in taste or enjoyment. Crit (4057) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2002
Golden with. grainy nose and taste. Very brief.............................. Brewmaster88 (53) - Petrolia, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2002
This is definately the worst beer I have ever tried here in Canada. I gagged and almost puked off the first drink. UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 4, 2002
Uh, I guess this is slightly worse than regular Labatt's. I don't know why. Maybe it was what I ate with it, or when I had it, or something. I just didn't like it. Then again, I like to eat french fries with mustard.

As opposed to many of the comments, I actually like this common beer more than most Canadian brews. I can't help but think of sitting in a cold arena bench watching a Junior "AAA" hockey game in Chicoutimi. A good backcountry beer... whatever that means? mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2002
this was better than I expected, but being a labatt product that doesn't say much. somenice grainy flavours and a moderately dry finish. tourette (225) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2002
Not too bad. Its better than Labatt Blue, and its usually the same price. Why isn't this their most popular beer? MarshallMac (143) - West Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2002
just another lager............................................. PhillyBeer2112 (2895) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 Yellow gold, large but fading head. Light haze.
Some buttery pale palt with a slight aroma of herbal and spicy hops.
Straightforward and clean, with med malt flavor and a good dosing of spicy
hop flavors. Finish only lightly bitter. Surprisingly not bland or
watery, but still rather middle of the road in all respects.
