COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky SOB is an Irish Red for those whose lives always fall into placeand 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.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2015 Always down for the latest local brewery offering. 12oz bottle into pint glass, reddish-amber color with thin creamy off-white head. Aroma of heavy caramel/toffee noted malts and thats it. Taste is much the same, somewhat bready with very minimal of hop taste. Medium palate, low carbonation and clean finish. No aftertaste. Not complex (per the style) and straight forward.

Thisis12ptfont (1154) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Aromas of dark grain malts, caramel, honey, oats and barley. Pours a dark brownish amber with heavy lacing and thin white foam. Taste brings heavily carbonated caramel, crisp yeast, wet cardboard, grain malt, oats and faint hops. Overall, pretty basic but better than macro irish beers.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Bottle. Nose is malty, dirt plus caramel, lightly sweet, touch of fruity ester and honey. Pour is halfway between amber-brown and tawny-golden, meeting in a sinister dull orange, head is cola-like and fizzes itself out. Taste is medium-sweet with light-medium bitter, gets a biscuity-woody resolution that makes up for some of the naked metal and "dirty" earth, otherwise the light honey and subtle toasted/caramel are very welcomed. Light-medium body but never watery, and this is pretty drinkable. Dirty soda, how fitting! :) [2017.03.09: 2.9]

superspak (5303) - Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 7/1/2016. Pours crystal clear deep reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Awesome appearance. Aromas of big caramel, honey, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, light pepper, light plum/apple, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, honey, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, light pepper, light plum/apple, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, honey, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Low levels of diacetyl are noticeable, but not out of line for the style. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Irish red ale! All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable and well done style example.

rondphoto (4350) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2016
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of raw malt. Clear brown cvolor, three-finger beige head that stays, globs of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that adds medium fizz on the swallow, balanced by light hops. More a malt brew than a hop brew. A little heavy in the belly. Decent, but nothing memorable here.
