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.

Decent run of the mill stuff. Would have one at a party if it’s all they had. Otherwise, meh.

Pours a copper from the tap. Aroma of caramel additive, sweet maltiness with some slight acrid bitterness in the background. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had it from the bottle this time. It’s crisp and carbonated. The taste is dry malt with a hint of bitterness and caramel. For what it is, it’s not bad. It’s sessionable and tasty enough.

4.5%abv. 500ml can. Pours a clear ruby/caramel with a one finger, eggshell head. Aroma has smooth notes of caramel, slight roast, dark fruits, bread, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Dry caramel, traditional hops, and a touch of roast and dark fruits at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall tasty enough but not a show stopper.

Draft. Very disappointing. Flat, muted nose. Flat, muted flavors. Pales in comparison with modern IPAs and even regular ales.

15th May 2015: 11.2oz bottle into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip at my daughters house in Orange County. Nice red hue to the chestnut coloured body, on top a blanket of beige foam.Malty lead in both the nose and taste, good bitterness and some fruit notes in the taste also. Very fizzy on the palate: over carbonated for me to be honest, otherwise a very pleasant beers.

English beer that is very popular. This is a decent beer but once again doesnt have that much to distingush itself.

Pours a whiskey dark brown with a rich pull-candy colored head. Caramel, faint bourbon, cola, and tonic on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied. Caramel flavor with a little cola and bitter tonic as well.

Pours clear orange amber from 12 oz with frothy white head. Faint malty aroma, caramel possibly. Grainy, semi sweet malt flavor with smooth hoppy bitterness, though overall fairly tasteless. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall an easily drinkable beer but not many complexities to appreciate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
