COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 10, 2004
On tap at Whitlow's on Wilson. Weak aroma, head left some nice lacing on the glass. Dark reddish color. Malty with just a hint of nut, almost as if it wanted to be a brown ale. Kind of average.

Good beer. Good malty taste, a little metal taste that ruins the beer a bit.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2004
On tap at Ned Divine's. Sparkling clear, ruby/copper ale. Mildly malty. Well-balanced with traces of chocolate and caramel. Light-bodied with a thin, resiny mouthfeel. Short, bitter finish.

Deep amber appearance with a decent, clingy head. Slightly nutty aroma but nothing to entice you. Mild, inoffensive taste similiar to Bass.

1/9/04: on tap @ the smokehouse.
almond colored with a slightly creamy head. lacing. tan-brown body with hints of orange. slight pils aroma. more malt than a budweiser, but the flavor is just about as weak as a bud/coors/miller.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Muted aroma, which was lightly fruit-sweet with dark breadiness. Nice looking mahogany beer with uniform foamy head. Moderately tea acidic, lightly sweet, woody, a little bit of cocoa. Lost somewhere between a bitter and a mild. Some minor flaws in the palate and finish -- some kind of chalk and water thing, but generally fairly crisp with a light hoppines that built. Pretty straightforward, and an enjoyable, if unpretentious beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2004
Draught, at McCarthy’s, Kenmare, Ireland.</br> Amber with a large creamy head, served extremely cold. Thin body and very little flavour. Slightly bitter but quite a forgettable beer really.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2004
This was an enjoyable pint - partly due to the time and place but, hey, that's part of it right? Great coppery mahogony colour with a rich creamy head. Floral and hops and caramel(?) aroma with a nice mildly bitter aftertaste. Preferable to many of the standard pub choices.

Copper pour with medium white head (Draft). Unable to determine aroma due to bar atmosphere. Caramelly burnt flavor with a nice bitterness. Very smooth to drink, a nice beer.
