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.

355 ml can from LCBO. Pours very pale in colour, not much head at all. Corn aroma and taste. Refreshing only in coldness.

bottle. Blech, sickly sweet adjunct aroma and taste. All sweet corn. Its really cheap though, so thats a positive.

Spab (4218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear pale yellow gold with small white head. Aroma is corn heavy with maybe a hint of grassiness. Flavour adds a staleness that manages to make it worse than the aroma. Bit of a metallic finish. Bad.

Of the handful of locally available low-cost beers, This one is one of the more tolerable. Price wise, and taste wise. Leafy aftertaste, bitter and oily mouthfeel. But like I say, worth the few bucks that get you 6 of them in a pinch.

This beer is ok for the price. Pours ok and it has a bit of flavour but it is nothing special.

Tastes like every other lager you can get, clean, watery, mild in flavor, but the game under the cap is the clincher.

Its’ not that bad! don’t let others’ rating fool you. if you are in the mood for a cheap brew that tastes OK this will fit the bill.

Papillon (424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2010
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; I’m not sure what it is. Oh... It’s 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 I’ll be sampling far better beers.
