Yech. Malt liquor. Not sure how this is classified as beer honestly... mostly a gross metallic alcohol taste over grains and malts. AgentAle (1783) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Aroma is light sweet malts and some strong carbonation. Taste is a basic sweet maltiness that is met by a bland dry bitterness. Appearance is a clear pale gold with a poorly retained pearl head . reebtogi (6326) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
355ml can pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is grainy and grassy. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a mild hop bitterness that does not please the palate. Just another crappy macro lager that is not worth drinking.

i expected just a bit different taste compared to lucky lager. i was wrong. same cruddy smell, same dull taste but with more suck. only thing its got going for itself is that it came out of my cold fridge. ration (2253) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2012
Pours light golden. Aroma nonexistant. Ditto on the taste. Can nothing taste bad?

Can. Woo! Malt Liquor tick! Woo! Pours clear full gold, 1-finger white head, somewhat persistent. No lacing. Nose is aggressive alcohol, very earthy, instant headache upon nosing this, I kid you not. Spicy and earthy in a most thoroughly unpleasant manner. Flavours of soft earth, some corn, this is admittedly less terrible than I had originally expected. Then again, I am only one beer removed from Minhas Boxer, the first beer I’ve had in AGES to take a run at Molson Canadian’s throne of tears as Worst Beer in the Universe. Now where was I? Ah yes, this blows, but nearly as hard as I expected. For a malt liquor, this could legitimately be much worse. Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2011
Pours clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Smells alright strong and malty lots of fille. Pretty cheap. Tastes terrible. Just plain sucks. If you were lookin to get trashed lucky extra would do the trick. Terrible beer. luckyextra (1) - - FEB 14, 2011 does not count
ahhbooyeah, great beer, live for this, lucky exxxxxxxxxxtra!!!!!! Sner (1) - - FEB 1, 2011 does not count
Look, if you’re a snob, pay the extra money and drink something else. As far as cheap beer goes, Lucky Extra is as good as you’re going to get. Rivals Alberta Genuine Draft for overall quality and sheer value (both are about $18 for 15); both are at the top of the cheap lager ladder.
Again, this is rating the beer for what it is - cheap and strong. Far superior to crap like Bowen Island Lager, Mountain Crest, TNT, etc. Doesn’t taste like someone sank a shot of cheap whiskey into the can. pintbypint (3723) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2010
355ml can. Golden colour, white head with no staying power. Faint ring of bubbles left around the edge of the glass. Sweet aroma, a bit of sweet apple. Flavour is grainy, sweet, a bit of alcohol comes out late. Corn and grain lingering in the aftertaste. Medium body, actually kind of syrupy, medium carboantion. Not as bad as expected, doesn’t knock you out with fusels.
