Love drinking beer but hate hangovers? Thankfully, there is an alcohol-free beer for that. Read my Lucky Saint review to find out more!

Lucky Saint review summary

This is the perfect alcohol-free for lager lovers, designated drivers, pregnant women, lunchtime diners, and abstainers. It has the body and mouthfeel of an alcoholic lager, yet none of the hangover. I simply wish that Lucky Saint expanded their range so that more people can enjoy their alcohol-free creations!

My experience: The pros

I’ve been drinking alcohol-free beers for some time now and Lucky Saint is one that I purchase quite regularly. Now let me tell you why.

It tastes like beer

Lucky Saint is one of the only alcohol-free beers to actually taste like the beer it is imitating. This means you get the taste and mouthfeel of a light and refreshing lager. It’s a simple ask, but many other alcohol-free beers fail to pull this off.

You may still notice that it isn’t alcoholic, but it does have real body to it. So when you sip away you will get the feeling that you are drinking a lager. And there is no strange taste at the end of every sip, something I’ve noticed from most other alcohol-free beers.

They say it is because they brew the beer properly first before removing the alcohol using a nifty process called vacuum distillation. This basically means they are able to remove the alcohol at a lower evaporation point, in turn maintaining the flavour of the beer.

It is a healthy alternative

Most people who are looking to cut out alcohol are also looking to make healthier choices. With Lucky Saint, you can do just that because their alcohol-free beer is only 53 calories, sugar-free and 100% vegan.

You can enjoy a few of these in the evening and they won’t make you super sluggish like alcoholic beer does. And unlike many other alcohol-free drinks, these are packed full of sugars to make the drink tasty. Instead, they rely on the great taste of fermented barley, hops and yeast.

It is widely available

Not only is this a great alcohol-free beer, but it is also widely available. I’ve found it in many different supermarkets as well as a load of restaurants and pubs. This means you have a reliable alcohol-free beer to fall back on whenever you are out and about.

I personally really enjoy drinking a Lucky Saint when I’m at a restaurant. It pairs nicely with most Asian food and pizza too. And because it is alcohol-free, you won’t leave the restaurant feeling sluggish.

I also like having a few of them in my fridge at home to enjoy in the garden after work. It gives you the feeling that you are having a pint after work, but one that won’t leave you with a hangover for work the next day.

My experience: The cons

I really enjoy drinking Lucky Saint, it is without a doubt one of my favourite alcohol-free beers. That being said, I would love to see more from this company.

Limited selection

At the time of writing this, you can get one type of Lucky Saint, and that is their unfiltered alcohol-free lager. You can buy it in bottles or in cans. Unfortunately, they don’t have any other alcohol-free beers and if they did, I’m sure they’d do them really well. So I really wish they had a wider range, say a few ales and maybe a stout.

The company is still relatively young, so I’m sure we can expect to see new alcohol-free beers in the future.

My verdict: Lucky Saint is good!

I’ve tried a lot of alcohol-free beer and most of them fail to achieve the mouthfeel and body of an alcoholic beer. This is something that Lucky Saint have mastered. Whilst their beer may be a little lighter than your average alcoholic lager, it is the closest that any brand has come to replicating it.

The beer is refreshing, tasty and light. It feels like beer in your mouth, rather than just watered-down shandy (which most alcohol-free beers taste like).

I personally find these to be the perfect alcohol-free beer for taking to parties and for enjoying down the pub. It makes you feel like you’re involved in all the drinking fun because it doesn’t taste too dissimilar to the real thing.

At 0.5% it won’t get you drunk, no matter how much you drink, but it will make you feel rather smug the next morning. This smugness always appears whilst I’m drinking it too. And it has become a feeling I rather enjoy.

Whether you are looking to fill up your fridge with some alcohol-free beers or you want to know what drink to order at the pub, then I definitely recommend trying out Lucky Saint. With only 53 calories and zero sugar, you won’t regret it!

You can buy Lucky Saint in various places both online and in shops. I would recommend ordering from Lucky Saint’s website to make the most out of their subscription offer which gives you 10% off your purchase. Alternatively, you can add some to your next Amazon shop.

Frequently asked questions

Here are my answers to all your FAQs.

What is Lucky Saint?

Lucky Saint is an alcohol-free lager that contains 0.5% alcohol. It is a light and refreshing drink that has been brewed using traditional beer-making methods before the alcohol is removed. It is unfiltered, sugar-free and completely vegan.

How many Lucky Saints does it take to get drunk?

With 0.5% alcohol in a Lucky Saint beer, you won’t be able to get drunk. In fact, you’ll be just as likely to get drunk from eating bananas, which can also contain 0.5% alcohol. The same goes for a slice of rye bread. You would have to drink a lot more of their beer than your body could probably consume before feeling any effects from the alcohol.

This does mean that you can drink their beer throughout the day and you won’t feel any effects from the alcohol.

Can I drive after drinking Lucky Saint?

The amount of alcohol in Lucky Saint is minimal and won’t affect your blood alcohol content. This means that you can safely drive after drinking it. Making Lucky Saint the perfect beer for designated drivers!
