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.

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.

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

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Deep clear ruby pour with copious offwhite head and decent lacing. Strong rich malty aroma. Flavors of dry bread, yeast and light caramel malt. The strong dry oak and bitter finish kind of bother’s me, but is probably typical for the style. Leaves too much of a bitterish astringent aftertaste for me.

I don’t get anything in this beer. No malts, no hops, no flavor, nothing much interesting at all.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Nice looking copper colored brew with a creamy two fingered head and excellent lacing. Mild aroma-slightly acidic and toasty. Light bodied and dryish with a hint of caramel and a faint roasted note in the malt and a citrus peel bitterness. A little thin but decent tasting.
