Labatt Blue Dry 8.1 (8.1%): a malt liquor from Canada. For some reason I was pretty sure I had reviewed this already (see the review for the 6.1 % variant here). Anyways I was in the mood for a 40, .... yes I'm a gangsta.

  • Pours a fairly light golden liquid. Carbonation is pretty high.
  • Has a slight cereal aroma. 
  • Definitely has that Canadian "metal taste".
  • Sweat corn-like aftertaste (not disgusting I must say).
  • Mega buzz , but hey it's quite normal with such a high ABV.
  • I don't know about that bottle design/label. Looks okay I guess.

Verdict: better than the 6.1% variant. Decent for that particular style. 

Grade: B-
