Great aroma of roasted coffer. Good looking pur with big frothy head. Flavor is disappointing though. Just an ordinary ale.

Dark ruby/amber body, tight nitro-looking white head. Nice looking lace too. Aroma undetectable in the smoky bar. Flavor is moderately malty, a wee bit of hops squeezed in at the finish. Drinkable, but ho-hum in general.

Smithwicks on draft at WJ McBrides by the Kansas Speedway is a very nice Irish Pub. Food was good, beer was cold and delicious. Smithwicks was a very nice Ale. Would have scored higher with me but I felt it was a little thin for an Irish Ale. Smooth and Drinkable, its a solid beer. If you are by the Racetrak in Kansas City, good beer on tap is a beautiful thing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep ruby color with a medium off-white head. The aroma and flavor were not impressive in any way...slight nutty tones, bready tones, and a gentle earthiness in the aftertaste. The feel was sickly soft and thin...semi-wet finish.

Tap@toad in a hole. Small, thin white head; dark chestnut coloured liquid, clear, no lace--doesn’t look great. Light-medium body; light foamy carbonation; fairly dry. Aroma of wet paper, caramel; earthy; pale malts; apple. Flavor is musky; apple skin; light bitter finish; bready (wheat); raw yeast, lightly toasted flavor; plain malt profile: sugar, light carmel; yeast and hops provide most of the flavor: rich and full flavors in small amounts. VERY european; earthy, pale malts, mellow hops, dark and enjoyable.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very disappointing. This was one of the "better" beers at the bar I was at. Both cold and warm, all I got was a slight bitterness. A little hop bitterness but otherwise very bland. At least it was refreshing.

Had this during the St. Pats day rounds. Slight malt nut aroma, dry malt bitter taste a little sweet fruit in aftertaste at first, but it quickly dried out and became bitter. Probaly a good beer to go with your corned beef, but not interesting enough to reflect on by itself
