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.”

DiarmaidBHK (3726) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours dark red with some khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Fairly malty on the nose. Bigger hop notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but not spectacular.

Rich copper colour, tastes very caramely. Highly enjoyable, and very quaffable.

Scopey (9030) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle at home. It pours deep red-amber with a decent white head. The nose is toasty, spicy, malt-driven, bread, leaves and earth. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, toasty, toffee, dried fruits, spice, earth, leaves and bread and not a whole load more. Medium body and average carbonation. Fairly simple stuff, but not all bad.

JDBaker11058 (1538) - Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2015
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.

Beerdedone (2956) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours ruby red with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, earth and had a touch of fruit. Flavor was slightly sweet with caramel malts, light fruit, earth and bread.

solidfunk (5291) - 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 (3241) - 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 (3341) - 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 (1424) - 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.
