Well… it had to happen eventually. In compiling a list of beers I have consumed, Labatt 50 had to show up at some point. Considering I a) don’t live in Saskatchewan and b) don’t own a cottage, I have had much better options available to me for most of my life. Then there was the company Christmas party (yes Christmas, not holiday).
Poured it out and it looked like beer but it smelled like ass. The first sip was ok, then there was the aftershock of disgrosstingness! One of the guys from work (a real party guy) suggested we add a lime and try it that way, he called it a Canadian Corona. And you know what? It made it better. Not great, but better. I was able to finish the glass at that point.
After that, I switched over to rye for the rest of the night, just to get the taste out of my mouth… it didn’t work.
