COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Lager was introduced to beer drinkers in 1934. The name Lucky was selected from a name-search contest. Fully fermented in Bohemian-style tradition and slightly darker in colour than regular brands, Lucky uses select ingredients and hops to deliver a slightly sweeter taste than most lagers.

Short version of the Lucky Lager story: the brand was founded by General Brewing in California. This was folded into a consortium led by three BC breweries. General Brewing later split off from the consortium and was eventually brought into the Pabst fold. The BC breweries later became Labatt's and thus there are two lines of ownership of the Lucky Lager brand. The brand is today more prevalent in Canada, especially British Columbia.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2005 Smooth malt taste with a mild nutty flavor. Not much to the aroma, but a very appealing american standard.

Youíd be lucky to find something else on tap. They say that this is 5% alc but I think they were drunk when they evaluated this beer, it seems rather watery. What is with the soda pop twist top?

Just the name brings back boyhood memories of the original Lucky brewery in Portland...Some traces of the original still remain: the modified "stubby" bottle and the puzzles under the caps...For standard "fizzy" beer, this is better than many...sweet bottom, considerable hop/carbonation bite...some good bang for the buck here...

Sweet corn like nose. Small white head with a yellow, bubbly body. Starts off tasting vaguely like a real pilsner but fades quickly into a watered down sourness. Some extremly faint fruity flavors and a bit of bitterness that I donít think comes from hops. This lager tastes extremly watered down. I believe itís worth drinking over a bud, coors, or miller, however.

Whatever...I must say I was not expecting this to be a good beer. Actually I was expecting this beer to be terrible. To my surprise this brew was smooth, UNSKUNKY, and didnít really hurt the pocket. I canít get this beer in the states, but if I could I would actually consider making a Luckyís drinking night. Nothing special by any means, but hey...Iím not that much of a beer snob yet.
