Had it on tap. Didn’t really have a distinct smell. Felt a bit watered down.

Nicht besonders intensiv im Geschmack, aber sehr süffig. Schöne Schaumkrone und tolle Farbe!

The best Irish Red Ale I’ve had. Lots of roasty, sweetness. Tons of malt and barley. The color is really awesome. As far as big beers go, this one is actually really good. There is a ton of flavor and big roastiness to keep it interesting

Smithwick's Irish ale tastes like an average beer to me. It does not seem to be especially different from some U. S. Beers, and I was somewhat disappointed.

Brownish clear pour with foamy tan head. Cereal/cardboard aroma. Very sweet, caramel, malt flavor, plenty of carbonation. Slightly metallic malt finish. I used to like this ale a lot more, spoiled myself with better tasting brews over the years. Drinkable though.

12 oz. bottle from Cost Plus. Pours a reddish amber with a lasting off white head and plenty of spotty lace. Flavor of caramel malt with hints of honey and a pleasant dry finish. Clean and refreshing. The body is medium thin and lager-like, but with a creamy mouth feel. Not particularly complex but it’s not supposed to be. A really nice 4.5% ABV session ale.

12oz bottle from Kroger in Grandview: Copper orange pour with thin white head. Aroma of sweet fottee, nutty. Tastes of the same and little herbal. Little watery in the light palate. Not bad, but not anywhere near good.
