Good news? It goes on sale all the time and tastes like Blue, Bud, Canadian, Pil, Kokanee or any other mass produced Canadian Lager. Bad news? It tastes like any other mass produced Canadian lager. This is a beer that tastes good when you are thirsty. Really thirsty. Otherwise, mix it with Clamato. Or Canada Dry. Or lemonade. If you're buying a Canadian macro, buy this and save yourself some money.

If i'm thinkin' right,Lucky Lager was once famous for its 11 oz stubby bottles featuring a rebus under the cap.

From what i've heard,since the closure of the Tumwater brewery, this famous bottle has been discontinued...

I first tried this in Alaska back in 94' and it was a great lager then-drinking it while watching northern lights in Valdez & while playing guitar at the Bluegrass festival in Anderson that summer...i'm not sure if anything is the same about that beer now....

...not sure if anything in the world is the same as it was in 94' actually...some things are better,alot of things are worse...fortunately for us,beer (it's availability & diversity) with the "Craft Beer-Boom" is way better now than in 94'

...of course,the "bubble" is coming, they say...we'll see if alot of great beers soon go the way of the dinosaurs like "lucky lager" or not..until then,"Cheers".

Fun fact:

Brad Pitt in the movie "Kalifornia": "Adel, we are going to hike up that mountain that says Hollywood on it.We're gonna drink some Lucky Lager and howl at the moon...ow ow owww!"
