Originally rated on 2/6/08- I consider smithwicks to be a good beer because its very well balanced, not overpowering in anyway in regard to flavor, smell, mouthfeel, ect without being watery . This is a good beer for people who dont drink much or have limited backgound in dark beers. Worth a try.

Pre-pour notes. As I opened the bottle, the aroma from the aroma very clear. Very nice.
Aroma is nutty and roasted malt. Itís bready, ap I donít know if thatís yeast or malts. But itís very tasty.
Mouthfeel is pretty thin. Itís light, and crisp. Itís super drinkable. It has a little Guiness creaminess in there.
Overall, this is very good. Iím pleasantly surprised. I expected much less, and boy was I surprised. Certainly, this is a must try. Red ales, are not my favorite, but I could be persuaded otherwise with ales like this. Do try this. Iím glad I did.

This is probably my Favorite beer! It's easy to drink and I love the roasted flavor in it. I have been getting this for a while now, I really need to try more Red Ales.

Draft in Ayre, MA. Creamy white head on charcoal brown. Soft sweet malt aroma. Smooth body, raisins and sweet fruity malt. Solid. Not a ton going on. Feels a bit under attenuated.

Draft pour pint at the Wilde Rover. Pours a dark brown color with a fizzy bubble head. Seemed firing to rate this for the first time in am Irish pub, though I would prefer to be across the pond and doing it right. Iíll pretend for now. Creamy body with a nutty malt flavor. Has little flavor, but not bad. Not bad, but not really that good either.

Classic red. For me it isnt fantastic. It is quite good. Surely in stile (it is guinness ) beauty to see, with aroma of bread and spicy.

Aromas .are mostly bready malt. Hop presence is very mild and nondescript.
Color is a dark reddish-brown, with a fairly large off-white head which dissipates fairly quickly.
Taste is fairly sweet with just a mild bitterness.
Body is medium; carbonation is average; texture is slightly thin. Finish is medium, bready with just a slight bitterness.
Overall this is a pretty unremarkable beer; mild and one dimensional.
