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.

Had many of these on Sunday at a friend’s... drunk from the can. Didn’t get sleepy at all, as a heavier beer would have done, so I’m 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.

This is not a superb beer. It's not even a very good beer. But it is quite decent for cheap beer. It's a good beer for camping and fishing. Most of my rating comes from the nostalgia factor. This was the first beer I drank, in 2002, while sitting in the boat in the middle of Whitefish Lake with my dad's friend when we were out camping. We didn't catch any fish, but it was a good day nonetheless. This is the beer I take out into the wilderness.

Pale yellow and sweet, goes well paired with some seawater spraying in your mouth. Cheap easy drinker lager better than Labatt or Molson.

Just because I’m on the Island! On tap. Pours a clear gold with moderate head. Aromas of corn sugar and grain. Flavors of same plus chewy malts. Maybe because it’s fresh and on tap - it’s not as bad as others rate. Can’t say it’s very inspiring tho... Definitely a pounder for after a round of golf on a hot day...

The only people who think this beer is an A+ are hicks and inbred’s. Not a bad beer but not great.

I’d been eyeing this one at the liquor store for awhile, wondering (or perhaps dreading) what this cheap lager may taste like in comparison to the oodles of other cheap lagers I’ve tried around the world. It pours with a slightly creamy but rather crappy head and heavily carbonated body. Aroma is all corn sweetness, not overbearing or disgusting however. Flavour is soft caramel leaning slightly into cardboard territory with a dry finish. While certainly not great, this is not in the drainpour category and probably isn’t too bad an option for a cheap back porch brew that can be downed by the dozen.

Draft - Light sweet malts. Clear pale gold with a decent whitehead. Light sweetness and not much else. Lights and wet.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
Not necessarily a bad beer, just mass produced and generic. Aroma and flavour of wheats and grains, with little else going for it.

12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. A light bodied brew I would pound in college.

No real flavor, zero head, and slightest hops. Pretty gross stuff IMO. I literally found this under the seat while borrowing an alcoholics car. I'm glad I didn't pay for it. Disclaimer: I put it in the fridge, drank it in the house, and did not drive after. Can't say the same for the previous 5 from the pack unfortunately.

Well it’s a Canadian legend. Not not all legends are great in the end, just look at Lance Armstrong. This beer is like Lance in that it pretends to be something it’s not. Is it a lager? sort of...
