Luckybuddha is a pretty unremarkable pale lager, but it was irresistible to me.  I saw it on the shelf and I had to have it.  The reason? Its amazing, possibly sacrilegious, green Buddha-shaped bottle.  This bottle is truly a triumph of marketing.  I have seldom been so tempted by a pale lager.

Luckybuddha is brewed by Cheerday Brewing out of Chunan County, Zhejiang, China. It contains 4.8% alcohol. It is a very pale straw-coloured lager with moderate carbonation and a wispy white head. It has a grainy aroma playing with a slightly bitter backing band. It has a crisp, short taste. The flavour is the innocuous pale lager archetype--mild grass and grain.

So cool!
Sexy profile!

This stuff is refreshing and clean, but nothing special. Though this beer isn't particularly groundbreaking or fascinating, it comes in a damn cool bottle.

Rating: 6.0 out of 10.
