You’d 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?

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? There’s 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, there’s a lot better choices out there.

I hate the phrase " it is what it is" but it totally applies here. When I’m 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 it’s also cheap it’s 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 don’t think Early Grayce would drink the Canuck version of Lucky Lager.

Known coloquially as "da luckies" e.g. I’m going to da store to get da luckies. This beer is shitty. 355mL Can, 5%, reviewed straight from can. Pale lager that doesn’t even stand up to awful macros like Canadian or Kokanee. Taste like corn and malts left out near a hog farm.

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. It’s 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.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
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 it’s 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. I’m feeling lucky. Are you, punk?

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Originally from Vancouver Island this beer was the stuff of low budget youthful adventure.
I sampled this beer again in appropriate circumstances, in an icefishing shack selling christmas trees for a local charity, it was below -40C with wind chill.(poured from can)
Nostalgia aside: On pouring it has a small white head, it is a very clear yellow, it looks like a typical canadian lager. It has perhaps a very small malt aroma, I cant smell any hops. It tastes like not very much, a very slight malt flavour, not very forward at all, hardly any noticeable bittering from hops. It is highly carbonated and feels like it in the mouth. There is very little discernable hop character. I finished it, but it definitely reminded me why I like to be sure to pick up my beer before the liquor store closes and I am relegated to the vendor.
