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.

Is this new?? I'm not sure. But the barkeep at the Irish pub where I first ordered this pronounced it, "Smiticks". Certainly an enjoyable Irish Ale. Nice amber color, a certain roastiness to the palate. Sweet and slightly flat-tasting. Overall, not half bad. A nice alternative to the more typical Bass or Harp!

Has a nice amber color with a thick white head and a malty smell. Taste is sweet malts and finishes with a medium bitterness. Overall a very fine beer.

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 (9953) - 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.

guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2004
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.
