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.”

planky84 (2105) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle from Costcutter, Hither Green. Copper coloured pour with an off white head. Aromas of red berries and orchard fruit which segue nicely into the flavour. Malt heavy finish. Quite nice.

johndoughty (3979) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Reddish appearance and poured with a medium head. Quite malty with some fruitiness. Plenty of body considering its pretty reasonable strength. A good example of this style.

jmgreenuk (4337) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear reddish amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, light metallic hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt, resin hop light citrus bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I don’t like red ales normally, but this one had some body and a little flavour.

Burgers (322) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Clear amber with thin white head. Aromas mainly bread and cereal with trace of caramel malt. Taste mild bitter and sweetness. Finish slightly too sweet. One of Flying Dog’s better beers but it’s a triumph of presentation over content.

snowdog140 (36) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
A beautiful ruby colour with a primary but not overpowering hop aroma. A mild taste with a hoppy aftertaste makes it very drinkable and one that would work as a session beer.

spacecube (835) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
330ml bottle, pours clear amber with a small white head. Toasted bready malt with caramel malt, not much hop favour but bitterness coming through at the end. This pretty standard fare. Was hoping for a bit more character. It’s not bad.

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A red-amber coloured beer with a rich malty, red fruit and burnt toffee flavour followed by a sweet, creamy toasty warming finish.
