12oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
Reddish amber with half a finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity and moderate carbonation.
Toasted bread, toffee and caramel. Hints of brown sugar and cocoa.
Toasted bread and biscuits. Toffee, caramel and dark candy sugars. Dusted cocoa, brown sugar and hazelnut. Light touches of honeydew and underlying noble grassiness. Has a really clean yeast character.
Medium bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing.
This has really surpassed my expectations. As a beer touting that it's brewed with 4-leaf clovers, I was a little skeptical. Forget the clovers, this is a damn good Irish Red!

Real clover in the boil, really cool. I didn't get any clover (not that i'd be able to identify the taste of clover) from the beer but interesting for sure. Beer poured a nice deep reddish hue and super clean / clear. Really nice tight 2 finger head that remained for the entire drink. The first sip was really nice and smooth nothing overpowering anything else. The malt and hops played nicely with each other. I could drink this all day. Really nice carbonation and medium bodied.

Flying Dog : Lucky SOB
LOOK: Reddish light amber, white foam and a bit of lacework. Has the look of a firey Irish red.
SMELL: Lightly toasted malts, caramel, buttery bread.
TASTE: Caramelized malts lead the way. Balacing the hearty malt profile is a mild herbal, coarse, leafy bitterness. Über clean, simple, and thoroughly enjoyable.
FEEL: Medium bodied, crisp and clean.
OVERALL: Solid all day Irish ale, compliments to the brewer on this one. Spot on.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear amber in color, with a nice two-inch head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Toasted malt, herbal hop note
Taste-Toasted malt, nice little kiss of hops, tangy spiciness(could this be the 4-leaf clovers that supposedly used in the brewing of this beer?) Who knows? That being said this ia a pleasant, drinkable Irish Red.

Pours an nice red amber and very clear pour with 1 finger head. Slightly fizzy and decent retention.
Smell - some malt and some metallic scents. Not off-putting but not the best.
Taste - Very mild and sessionable beer from Flying Dog whom is known for some harshness. Slightly sweet caramel and malty start with a crisp dry finish and slight hop bite, but very balanced. Good Irish Red style.
Mouthfeel is very respectable for the style.
Overall - Irish Red Ales usually aren't my favorite style, but this one is pleasant and an easy flavorful drinker. Recommended for a sampling by all.

S: Very toasty malt, bread crust like. Hint of roast with soft floral notes.
L: Very burnt orange, bordering on red. Crystal clear, 1/16 inch creamy head with ok retention
T: Toasty malt with a prominent earthy hop flavor. Medium earthy bitterness with some grainy sweetness with additional prominent spicy hoppiness. Finishes semi-dry with graininess and a slight hop bite.
M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.
Really solid example of the style, a little more hoppy than usual. Not sure what the 4 leaf clovers contributed besides being a marketing ploy.
