Smithwick’s is Ireland’s number one ale. Its exceptional taste, distinctive colour and purity of ingredients make it unique. Its rich, satisfying taste has earned it five gold medals in the famous Monde Selection Beer Tasting Competition. Smithwick’s is produced using the finest hops and special roasted, malted barley. In 1998 a new enhanced draught product with improved head retention was launched along with redesigned glassware.

Really really great looking glass of beer, when you get it served for the first time, like I did in a Dublin bar, but unfortunatly the flavor can not match the appearance, not bad though.

Looks really nice but that’s where the loven ends. No nose and the flavor is dominated by malts and water. Nothing I’d try again... unless it was free that is.

pours a dark amber color... sweet malty flavor but not much flavor... easy drinking.. not real impressed... I would drink it again.. but view it on the dull side.

Nice amber-copper color with a nice off white head. Malty with a slight hint of fruitiness. Quite light bodied and easy drinking, nothing special.

Pours a dark amber color. Body is very weak an watery. Lots of head that laces around the glass. Very bland taste.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
Bottle. Dark garnet with a one finger dense lasting head. Taste-tastes like I licked a wet dog-very malty, slightly thin. Decent use of hops with some wet cardboard on the back end. Malty slightly cherry nose. This is very very easy to drink and inoffensive, but it is incredibly bland.

After having on draft for 3 months before it was available in bottles it wasn’t the same. Poured dark amber, waterdowned flavor. Better on draft.
