1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
473 mL Can. Pale straw body with a frothy white head that settles to a clingy layer. Corn dominates in the aroma with grassy and floral notes and accents of old socks and bread crust. There is something else that stings the nose; Iím not sure what it is. Oh... Itís chemical. Sweet corn dominates the taste, there is some grass there too. The hops are a whimper at the most. Remarkably smooth in the mouth followed by a very clean finish; the only aspect that truly stands out in any way. OTOH I count myself Lucky to be alive and knowing Iíll be sampling far better beers.

Pours golden yellow with a very tall foamy head. Aroma is dull and light with a distinc corn aroma. The flavour is light and unoffensive with a sweet malty tang. This is a suprisingly good beer considering the price point. Way better than Canadian and much cheaper.

Hardly any smell at all, just a hint of malt and bitterness, but it doesnít really smell like hops... a nice bit of head on pour that quickly fades, hardly any lacing. Actually tastes -good-, which means non-offensive, which you learn to expect from cheap clear lagers. Its actually fairly smooth, a bit of bite at the end of the sip, probably that bitterness you smell at the beginning. Not too bad actually, for what it is. I donít mind drinking it if thereís nothing around but other peopls idea of beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Extremely pale with fake foamy white head. Clean and bland aroma of noble hop and malt/wheat/corn. Tastes wheaty-sweet at first and later develops a very unfortunate tinny and soapy feel and aftertaste. I guess there are hints of grape and lemon and sarsaparilla before the train-wreck finish sets in. My teeth actually feel sticky now. Gross!

***review from canned swill night 2 years ago***
Yay! Cheap crappy beer! All hail drinking a six pack of beer cans out of a paper bag... Excellent very pale gold beer with crowds of happy oversized bubbles, unblemished white skim level head.Wonderfully oversweet swill, appealing skunky demeanor, cruddy malts, fine rice, sourness. This is great! I cannot wait to devulge into the awaiting burst of exotic flavors. Watery, sharply bitter and an after taste that will remain in your memories for minutes to come. Great rice tastes with value-priced hops and wheat. Value priced! The V is for vonderful. Incredibly this gets better when warmer - go figure. Itíd drinkable and if you are lonely and/or living on a bed of discarded tires.

One of Canadaís ílegacy swillsí, not as popular (?) as Blue or Canadian but every bit as good and a bit cheaper, too! Iíve not had one of these since the early 70ís, and Iím not disappointed as I wasnít expecting much. Drinkable and non-repulsive. ps - one of my fatherís beers from decades ago,

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a piss yellow with a forced carbonation head. Aroma is SWEET! Oh man Iím probably not going to like this... Dextrose (not that I can identify it specifically, but Iím going to go with it), corn grass and other sweet notes on the nose. The taste... is well... appalling. So sweet I canít even decipher specific flavors besides corn and alcohol. Mouth feel is typical of cheap forced carbonation beers. Man this is bad... And down the drain it goes.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"Oh dear god it has come to this, Iím doing the lucky lager review, I must mentally prepare for the on slot of taste and feeling Iím about to put my body through. Pretty standard light gold body, and a surprisingly large head was produced on the pour from the can. The cap seemed to have good retention what was very shocking, not a bad looking beer really Iím shocked I just said that. Smooth malty smell maybe a slight metallic sourness, and what the hell I swear Iím smelling some banana, weird the aroma isnít nearly as offensive as I thought it would be itís pretty mild and not pure crap. Aw here we go in the taste this beers true nature is revealed, bitter malts, egg yolk and a whole lot of bread, lots of bread, I think I just drank a loaf of bread. Taste isnít really that offensive but it still leaves a lot to be desired. Beer wasnít nearly as bad as I thought it would be, this would make a great camping beer if you where 16 years old but itís not worthy of a yard work beer unless you live in a trailer. P.S. drink ice cold or it becomes almost undrinkable"

A nice cheap, easy drinking lager. Donít drink because it is refined, drink to get sauced. Cheap and goes down quite easy, donít knock this brew too badly, you get what you pay for. Worth every buck.
