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.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with off white head. Toast, toffee, malty aromas and flavors. I haven’t had this beer in 7 years; probably won’t have it again for 7 years.

blackflag321 (477) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Draft with a meal. Dark amber with a too large foaming head running all over the table (what the hell?). Sweet, malty, slight hoppiness. Okay, but just okay.

poured from a 14.9 oz. can into an english pint glass. warm smell. almost a color between a dark ginger ale and a light cola with micro graphic bubbling. minimal foaming once poured. wierd, maybe, but i like the ale’s tastiness better outta the can than outta the bottle.

radio_nowhere (795) - Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Draft at Hardtimes Cafe, served in a pint glass. Clear deep amber color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and slight fruity yeast note. Taste is sweet roasted malt, slight graininess with slight fruity hop note. Light body, moderate carbonation, light with clean finish. Another Irish Ale down the hatch, still a boring style to me.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of bread, grain, dirt and sweet malt. Tastes of semi-toasted malt, apricot and sweet bread. Sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
