COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky SOB is an Irish Red for those whose lives always fall into place…and also for the rest of us who curse those blessed bastards. Brewed with real four-leaf clovers, it is perfectly poised to bring the “Luck of the Irish” to those who drink it. With a rich amber color, its toasted and honey malt flavors are balanced with a subtle hop bite. Not to mention that its clean and refreshing finish is the perfect accompaniment to chants of “Erin Go Braugh.”

Appearance: deep, clear orange red with a finger of creamy, soapy near white head that slowly shrinks to a thin collar, leaving decent lace. Aroma: caramel, brown bread, earth, brown sugar. Taste: caramel, toffee, brown sugar, light cardboard, and a general bitter hop character that was a bit of a surprise. Finish: lasting bitterness in the earthy-floral-piney vein; there’s some toffee sweetness too, and a bit of astringency. Notes: Not my favorite version of a style I’m awfully fond of. A little too bitter. Would have liked that more restrained. It was ok… Bottle from Ye Old Spirit Shop in Frederick, Maryland.

solidfunk (5159) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Rusty with lots of mash malt. Pours red with creamy he’d and lacing. The look of this is probably the best part. Sour aftertaste that stays with you even after drinking some water to rinse. Bottle.

The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Apr 2015 - Short shitty review at a social. 330ml bottle, 5%. Reddy orange, slight haze, small foamy white head. Aroma is bready, leaves, background toffee. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is toffee malts, a little earthy, soft bitterness. Fine, basic.

Frank (3292) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2015
I might call this an ESB or something, maybe an American amber. It is really pretty red w/ a huge, long lasting head and tons of lace--very impressive appearance-wise but the nice visuals are unfortunately wasted on a less than steller brew. This is mild and sort of malty w/ a firm earthy bitterness that is altogether ruined by a strong metallic off-note. At least it is not too sweet so it is kinda drinkable despite this. Still, not exactly the most pleasant beverage on earth.

hershiser2 (1357) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours brown with a small off-white head. Smells of leaves, copper, caramel, and sugar. Taste is caramel malts, crayons, and wheat. Bitter.

Cool_Bond (1978) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
Sweet, malty and creamy flavor and aroma. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Slightly bitter makes me like it anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2015
12oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a warm caramel with a light clove grit. As it settles, apple and pear - like fruity aromas appear with spicy nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as a herbal touch. The beer is a clear red amber with a fuzzy, off white head that retains a dirty surface and moderate ring. The taste is a medium, balanced bittersweet. It’s oily with a flattish foam carbonation and amedium body that’s flavor profile includes notes of caramel, nuts, and spice. It finishes spicy and roasty with an aftertaste that’s light and clean.

On tap at dog and cask. Faint malt and wine aroma. Good lookin dark mahogany with tan head. Roasted caramel malt with hops and a bit of clove. Great drinkability. Well done.
