Day #140 – Lucky Buddha Beer

May 21, 2011

I know I’ve said it before that sometimes you buy a beer solely on what the bottle or label looks like.  Well this is definitely one of those times.  After seeing what the bottle looked like on this next beer, I couldn’t resist but to get it.

Lucky Buddha Beer

This beer is somewhat of a mystery to me.  The box says it was brewed by Lucky Drink Company, but when I check out their website and it doesn’t exist.  It also says on the packaging that it is imported from China.  Some further research reveals that it is brewed by Hangzhou Qiandaohu Beer Co., Ltd. which is actually based in China, while the Lucky Drink Company is out of Australia.  Haha, kind of takes away from the authenticity I think.  It’s also a pale lager at 4.8% ABV but the bottle rocks.

This beer pours a very clear golden color with a fizzy head that disappears quickly.

Aroma of corn and sweet grains. Some metal but absolutely no skunk. I’m shocked. Doesn’t smell too bad.

Has a sweet grain taste with a mix of lightly bitter malts, corn and slight copper. This actually is kinda smooth. I hate to say it but pale lagers come in 2 categories, awful and above awful and this one is above awful. (meaning it’s rather tasty.)

Cheers!

  1. I found Lucky Buddha to be a refreshingly light lager for the sweltering Houston summers. I think that it is as good as many of the pale lagers on the market. The rather low ABV and conversation starting bottle help to make Lucky Buddha a perfect beer for socializing.
