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.”

Poured into a dimpled mug. Maroon-red color with a modest, short-lived head. Big nutty and toasty aromas on the nose with a more vague earthy hop presence. Still smells sweet. Light to medium body. Definite nutty and sweet malt character in the taste with a clean, dry hop finish. It certainly fits into the style as far as I am concerned.

Leafs93 (1987) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Pours reddish amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is caramel, bread and cereal, all malt coming through. Taste is mildly bitter. Light bodied and a decent Irish Ale.

Bottel from Beer and Wine. Nice dark brown body with medium head. Nose is sweet, malty, plummy. Taste is also plums, berries, malts, caramel. Really nice and enjoyable.

Great taste. One of the better Irish reds I've had. It was a perfect looking beer. Just enough foam at top and great aroma. Taste wasn't over barring which made it quite refreshing.

Bottle from Beer52. Dry, earhy hop aroma. Smooth and balanced. I couldn’t quite work out why I liked this, but I did, despite there not being much distinctive to it.

lokis333 (218) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - OCT 27, 2015
Clear deep amber color, Aroma of figs and dried fruit, bit of alcohol to it but weak. Palate, Light but full body and sweet. Tastes of malt and yeast mainly. quite plain. Over all i would say it was on the dull side and very simple, for the price wount say it is worth it.

StueyD (1549) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
A mid red orange coloured beer with a frothy yellow-white head. A dusty, biscuity malt aroma, hints of caramel and fruit in the background. Medium-dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off quite sweet, caramel malt and dried raisin fruit. Then there’s a mildly bitter hoppy flavour that adds a light refreshing element to the finish. Bottle from Beers of Europe.

DiarmaidBHK (3951) - 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.
