Overview Labatt Blue is the flagship brand of the Labatt Brewery (though Budweiser, produced by Labatt for the Canadian market, is the top-selling beer in Canada). Labatt Blue and Molson Canadian have a long rivalry for the title of best-selling Canadian beer. But Labatt has a special place in the heart of many a Canadian—and for good reason. Even if this beer isn’t sophisticated, it’s fun, easy drinking.

Flavors and aromas It was nothing special. But isn’t there a place for nostalgia? Our tasters uniformly panned this beer as weak, lacking in flavor, and watered down. The thin aroma was particularly singled out as lacking in charm. But, in a pinch, it’ll get the job done.
