starting drinking beer with (labatt) "50",as did most people who grew up in the same part of montreal.
maybe good high school memories are getting the best of me,but i do not find this all that bad;still think it would go fine after a hockey game or playing poker with friends.
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 Couleur blonde dorée bien limpide. Mousse éphémère. Nez sur les céréales. Assez ronde en bouche, un peu sucrée, notes florales agréables, carbo un peu trop puissante. Petite amertume en fin de bouche. Pas mal de l'industrielle.h stantheman (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2017
From a 740 ml supercan purchased at Denman Liquor Store in Vancouver. Pale yellow, lots of white head. Hopelessly sweet and lacking in hop and malt character. Bland is the operative word. 1.6

This is the beer that I started with in 1967 at 19 years old, and I honestly thought it was the greatest thing under God’s heaven. My, how times and tastes have changed! ...for the better I would say!
To tell the truth Labatt 50 was pretty classy compared to the 20 cent per glass draft lager swill served up in beer parlors back then. Now that was raunchy beer, and not in a good way!
Where Purchased: 335ml can labeled "Labatt 150" from the LCBO
Consumed: from a pilsner glass
Aroma: Smells sweet, malty and skunky.
Appearance : pale medium gold with lots of head that disappears immediately into no lacing.
Taste: malty and sweet with a bit of a soapy taste.
Palate : light body. Lingering sweet aftertaste. Great carbonation.
Overall: It was laking flavour. Too bland, other then the malts. Kind of what I expected from this beer ( i had it years ago). I was glad to try for Canada’s 150th but will not buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

From old tasting notes. Bright gold color with a foamy white head. Clean malty aroma with a touch of graininess. Flavor is dry malt and hops. Finish is slightly sour and gassy. thedudeenthused (22) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2017

Straight from can at Velvet Undergroumd while waiting for the Gaslamp Killer. Horrible dampness, like malts soaked in autumn rain for 3 months. Almost unbearable crap. Headache material. thewakingwest (16) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2017
This is a great beer to get at live music shows. Particularly Teds Collision, the horseshoe tavern and lees palace. laurenspoons (12) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2016
Not sure why the hate, this is one of mine and husband’s favourites! Light and crisp, pretty nice. Nothing like going to the tavern and having 5 or 6 of these. Listigovers (1264) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2016
Light blond beer, one of the only Labatts I enjoy. The dirty grain flavour is never stale, the hops are not bright but add some crispness, light bodied, a stiff and dry alternative to Blue/Canadian. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Bright straw color with storming activity. Slightly creamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with good legs. Flavors of sweet grains, barley, caramel, corn, faint skunk, herbal spices. Thick malt sweetness, a little syrupy, with faint bitter hops. Oily full body with moderate carbonation. Light finish, lingering malty cereal feel, sugar cane, and faint hops. Good freshness, the flavors are okay, although feels a little adjunct. Too much sugars and a bit flat. Seriously one of the best that Labatt can offer, with a tradition over here saying that it’s even drinkable at room temperature. Overall below average quality craft.
