Blue has a grainy aroma with notes of sweet grasses. The flavour is very mild, moving from sweet to bitter. It is extremely easy-drinking, though not tremendously exciting. Grassy and crisp are the first adjectives that came to my mind.
As Canadian macrobrews go, Blue is far from the worst. I have little trouble understanding its wide appeal. It's innocuous, refreshing, and unsurprising. While Blue isn't really this beer nerd's cup of tea, it fares well compared to its immediate competition. Plus it's one of the few macrobrewed Canadian pilsners.
