Beer Friday. Labatt Blue
Labatt brewing company. Originated and now headquartered in Beautiful London, Ontario in 1847. Labatt brewing has been going for over 160 years, what`s that "longevity" you say? With being that old you would think that quality would play a big role in this huge brewer. They had prohibition to fight with in 1915 (yes, Canada had it too) and had to sell 2% alcohol in Ontario to help stay afloat. The best contribution from Labatt came the twist off cap...There I said it. It happened and it was beautiful (for all the drunks who wet themselves, and could not find bottle openers)
Oh how proud they must be to have a pilsner in their line up named after the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. It`s touching tidbits like that about our Canadian history that bring tears to my eyes and goose bumps the size of marbles. I have had Blue before without complaints, therefore I am not too worried about the taste, as I`m sure the thirty four Labatt executives are who are nervously sitting in their office as I write up this review. I did not pour this as it is a bottle, the aroma from the bottle gave me a sense of malts, and hops which brought to the conclusion (are you ready?) Beer!!!! Oh, here I go with the exclamation points again! The taste is great. None of that dead cat in mouth aftertaste, this is perfect after a long day on the bike, or sadly after a long day at work, or maybe during work.
