I tried this beer on July 26, 2008 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. This is probably one of the palest beers I have ever seen. It is a very translucent yellow with almost no head. The aroma is vomit. The mouthfeel is watery, thin bodied, and highly carbonated (40 minutes after pouring, there is still effervescence in the glass). The taste is very grainy and not much else. Only Milwaukee's Best has been worse.

what can i say about lucky lager, hmmm you get what you pay for. it looks like piss and tastes like sour metallic water. I only bought it cause i was broke and wanted some beer, but next time i think ill stick with water. It smells like it tastes absolutely terrible. Labatt should cease to make this so called beverage as it demeans beer.

This is the worst offender on the beer scene today. The type of beer a guy with missing teeth and a grungy old ballcap pickes up because he's "a goin' fishin' with ma buddies", and he ends up back at your liquor store for another case later that night, all wobbly and smelling of piss. Some people from Victoria still drink it because they claim it's "a Vancouver Island staple", but what they fail to realize is that it's brewed by Labatt's in Edmonton and right across Canada with a slurry of adjuncts that barely resemble beer. Never, ever drink one.

Pours a clean pale yellow color with a small white head. In the aroma, well, nothing, wait a faint smell of lager, but really nothing. In the taste, faint lagery tastes, and a dry banana peel. A small bite and alighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dryness to nothing in the aftertaste. The banana throws me for a loop, but really not that good at all.

My buddy’s "cottage lager" when he’s supplying the beer...its cheap....that’s all I can say for it. This was foul tasting urine when I tried it in the US and Labatt can’t do it any justice either. God help you if you ever take a swig when it gets warm...all the raw edge of the under cooked/under aged adjuncts comes through. Pours pale yellow, no head, over carbonated in the bottle, aroma of boiled corn sweetness. starts gravelly on the palate then departs a cloying adjunct taste balanced with a rough edge from poor aging. Tastes like unfinished adjunct swill. I rate this a notch above "wildcat" as Canada’s worst beer.
