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.

Tap. Some hints of caramel on the nose -- no hoppiness here. Raven to caramel colour, good head. Aromas are subtle but very present. Refreshing. Nice thirstquencher.

Septic (2) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2014 does not count
Very refreshing after a long hard day. Very smooth and unique taste gives this a very palatable taste. Dark yet light tasting, something not to be taken lightly. Although bubbly not too carbonated to make one gassy and full feeling. A good session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at O’Hara NY. Light brown color with thin foam. Caramel aroma is almost not there. Not much taste hits you. Easy to drink.

swesson (296) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a medium brown-red and makes a foamy white head. Aroma is faint, but smells of malted barley. Tastes of malt, caramel, and sugar. This is a session beer, nothing too remarkable, but decent ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maltman53 (432) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - OCT 20, 2014
From a can, it pours a dark copper. Gentle maltiness on the nose. Lightly caramelly, but mostly watery coca-cola and tea flavors coming through on the palate. The finish is watery malt w/o bitterness. Overall, it translates less in a can in the U.S. than at a pub in Dublin.

this would make a decent session ale, but nothing i’ll go out of my way for again. pours a brickish red, with decent lacing. the toffee maltiness is nice but a little simplistic. not bad & not great."
