Lucky's Irish Red ale is so perfect in it's simplicity, yet incredibly pleasing to the pallet. The blend of specialty grains lends a nice malty sweet flavor and aroma. Like most Irish Reds, the hops are very subtle, and almost non non-existent in the flavor and finish. While this beer starts off sweet and malty, it finishes a little dry on the pallet creating a quite complex beer. This is a perfect beer to serve year round, to you craft fans and non-craft fans alike. Turn around time can be quite short with the beer also making it a great one to keep on tap. Give Lucky's a try......and may the luck of the Irish find you!
