"I have some import beer in the fridge downstairs". Great, Smithwicks. At least it wasn’t stella. Pours red, taste and smells kinda like beer.... Nobody cares. As pedestrian as your brother who can neither afford a car nor public transit. Scroll further down for a detailed review because i really couldn’t be bothered.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on-tap at Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. From what I can tell, this is a permatap over there and it comes at $4.50 a pint, or something like that.
Appearance: Nice red color with a small tannish head. Lacing is alright at the start, but spotty the rest of the way. Looks alright. (3.5/5)
Smell: Malty. "Red." Maybe a sort of hoppiness, but definitely malt-forward and grainy. Nothing special, average at best. (3.25/5)
Taste/feel: Blah. It has all the typical flavors you’d find in a red/amber, but this one has a significant artificial sweetener sort of aftertaste that I tend to get in cheaper beers and it turns me off to this a good amount. Grainy. Slightly below average. The mouthfeel on this one is a bit thin with a moderate/high carbonation. (3/5, 3.25/5)
This is just a pretty mediocre beer, and it’s about what I had expected, maybe a bit less than. Wouldn’t buy again, but I wouldn’t turn it down.

Aroma : faint malt. Appearance : reddish copper, big foamy head. Taste: like a middle of the road pale lager macro, not bitter at all. Palate: foamy, lager like. Very forgettable beer.

Certainly isn’t terrible, I’ve had better and worse... If you are looking for a "meh" ale, this is probably it.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with off white head. Toast, toffee, malty aromas and flavors. I haven’t had this beer in 7 years; probably won’t have it again for 7 years.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft with a meal. Dark amber with a too large foaming head running all over the table (what the hell?). Sweet, malty, slight hoppiness. Okay, but just okay.
