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.”

From bottle pours an amber brown colour with fairly sizable tan head. Smell is sweet caramel malt with some red berries. Not much in the way of spice. Taste initially medium to high sweet which is luckily balanced with mild bitterness to stop it getting too cloying. Nice texture, not too thin. Overall this is above average but nothing to get too excited about.

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2014
bottle - Pours amber with a one finger light tan head and an aroma of toasted caramel malt. It tastes mainly sweet with mild toasted character and a hint of hops. It’s medium bodied and overall average in every way.

wyzzywyz22 (2036) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle, Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Poured a reddish amber colour with a middling foamy white head. Very muted aroma, vague fruits and cardboard. Flavour was sweet malty with notes of grain and metal. On the thin side. Disappointing. The great Steadman artwork is worthy of a far better beer than this.

Bottle from the Beer Heroes stand at Nantwich food and Drink Festival 2014. Pours a mid brown colour, nice malty aroma which follows through to the taste, some red fruit on the finish

niquillis (1194) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours red brown with off white head. Very malty for it’s style, kills everything else. Prefer my reds to be spicier. Ok though.

culchiem (2621) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
Draught at Against the Grain. Murky red with a thin head, excellent lacing. Aroma of sugary hop. Flavour is marmalade, berries and a light bitterness.

AshtonMcCobb (2923) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle from Appellation Wines Comely Bank. Appearance - amber with a nice creamy head. Nose - a touch of red fruit with some smoky spicy malt. Taste - caramel and bran cereal. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet dry texture and a fairly balanced dry finish. Overall - a good Irish red ale. Great prose on the bottle.
