I really like this beer. Not to strong in taste and never have after effects that I get with other brands. Was A Kokanee drinker but for the price and the taste I have switched to Lucky.

My rating is purely nostalgic. When I was a kid, my dad would drink this stuff. The bottle caps had puzzles, like the game concentration. I would get super excited to figure them out. I used to even uncap his new bottles while he was at work so that I could do the puzzles, and then recap them. Needless to say, my dad had a lot of flat Lucky Lager. Also, when I was in college, you could get a case of the 11oz bottles for like $3 which is was fantastic when you have zero dinero. Sure, it doesn't taste all that good, but it did the job.

Im sure this isn't the same as the original. Im also sure it makes little to no difference.

pours clear and pale yellow with minimal fizz that dies quickly.

Nose is full of corny type adjunct lager smell. typical.

Taste is exactly what one would expect. Cheap adjunct lager. It is what it is folks.

Mouthfeel is the same as every other macro lager.

Drinkability is high, as all carbonated water plus corn brews are.

Overall, this is a macro ladies and gents. You knew what you were buying, so don't act all pissed off about it. It's not terrible beer, it just is what it is. People love to hate. But you know what. I like all styles of beer, as long as they don't taste like shit. This doesn't taste like shit, it tastes like...macro beer. Fairly refreshing, and easy to drink anytime.
