Well itís a Canadian legend. Not not all legends are great in the end, just look at Lance Armstrong. This beer is like Lance in that it pretends to be something itís not. Is it a lager? sort of...

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Complete garbage that gets by purely on marketing it as some kind of sign that one is an "islander" (Vancouver Islander, that is).
Aroma? What aroma? Thereís simply nothing there - air tinged with a hint of grain. Appearance is about the same as a Budweiser or any other macro lager - pale yellow and not much else. Taste is minimal, like club soda with essence of beer. Palate is faintly metallic, lifeless wisps of nothing.
Overall, I cannot understand why on earth this beer is popular, other than as a "camping beer". Even then, thereís a lot better choices out there.

I hate the phrase " it is what it is" but it totally applies here. When Iím at the lake or have plans to consume more than a couple, this is my thrifty choice. I enjoy many other types of beer but it also comes at different price points .

For what it is its terrible... However since itís also cheap itís actually a good beer for the price and being a pale lager.

Cool logo, and iced cold from a tall boy drinkable. No real flavor, zero head, and slightest hops. I donít think Early Grayce would drink the Canuck version of Lucky Lager.

Known coloquially as "da luckies" e.g. Iím going to da store to get da luckies. This beer is shitty. 355mL Can, 5%, reviewed straight from can. Pale lager that doesnít even stand up to awful macros like Canadian or Kokanee. Taste like corn and malts left out near a hog farm.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have to write a review in defense of Lucky Lager since there is so much negativity here. I believe that most opinions of this brand are based on the price and lack of catchy marketing tactics. I pay less than $1 per can or bottle locally. However, it is on par with any product from the "mainstream" north american breweries and it far exceeds most. Itís certainly not my favourite beer but I always keep a case in the fridge for my big brand beer drinking friends. Try this beer with an open mind and perhaps even set up a blind taste test along side of bud, blue, canadian etc. You may be surprised.

355 ml. courtesy of Shane Bergman. Aroma is faint, some malt hops. Taste is faint- malt, little hint of grains, little to no hopes detected, and faint hints of cream corn. Watered down; nothing on the palate. Not a lot of flavor- but easy to drink. Better than most cheap, mass produced American beers. I come from a town (on the island) where people drink this stuff like water; so I tried to be respectful.. Just so little to this beer. I guess itís drinkable, but overall meh..

Had the pleasure of revisiting this at a bar in Victoria on Monday. Thanks for reminding me of the rancid think you guys do with water and have the audacity to name beer. It reminds me of my misguided youth and makes me want to run outside and see if there are any election signs to steal or fences to jump in seek of midnight trampoline jaunts. Iím feeling lucky. Are you, punk?
