Continuing my search for quality non-alcoholic craft beer this week. I’ve had to resort to the supermarkets for now as I’ve ran out of my bottle shop NA craft brews. Lucky Saint is a beer I know fairly well on account that we used to sell it at the pub I work in. I only had it the once quite a while and thought it was a fairly decent NA lager. As such I’ve decided to try it again and see if it holds up.
Lucky Saint pours a slightly cloudy, but fairly clear, gold with a decent white head. The aroma is almost non existent on the beer. There is perhaps a touch of maltiness but that is all. The body is surprisingly solid and not as thin as expected. Combined with a good level of carbonation, pushing the beer around, it’s not bad drinking. Quite crisp and refreshing with maybe a touch of citrus.
A quick note on the bottle art: I quite like this label. It’s modern and clean and I’d argue becoming a fairly recognisable brand. I’d like to know the origin of the ladybird motif.
Overall I’d say this isn’t too bad on the low/no alcohol scale I have. I’m starting to discover that a lot of these beers have a very similar aroma and I’m curious to find out why that is. I was however surprised by a solid body compared to many other AF lagers or ales I’ve previously had. I think it’s a bit lacking in the flavour department but I wouldn’t be opposed to having it in the summer particularly as it’s not badly priced. My Mum was actually a big fan and said she would definitely have it again!
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
