Drink to get drunk beer. Not for the taste of it.

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.

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.

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 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?

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.

Had many of these on Sunday at a friendís... drunk from the can. Didnít get sleepy at all, as a heavier beer would have done, so Iím reminded a bit of why the pale lagers remain popular.
A bit tangy, but other than that this had very little flavour. Smells like corn. Reminded me a bit of a poorly made Italian pale lager. Really feels like it was made in a factory.

Straight from the can at a neighbourís house, and I only accepted it to be polite. Awful. Awful is too nice a word for this watery, bitter dreck. I worked at a liquor store once and have a memory etched into my skull of this picture-perfect jock slamming a 24-pack on the counter, looking me in the eye and saying íThis is -such- good beer,í with every iota of his soul. More evidence that North American lagers are brewed solely to console insecure girly men.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml can pours a pale straw color with a small white head that leaves no lacing as it settles. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is cheap grains and horrible hop bitterness which lingers. Below average macro lager.
