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.

Ungstrup (30977) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
A nut brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has light notes of nuts combined with hints of yeast. The flavor is rather sweet with a note of burnt caramel and toffee. An OK beer without being anything special.

yngwie (15613) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2007
Can. A clear, golden beer with a decent, off-white head. It has a boring, but not bad, aroma of mostly burnt caramel. The flavor is more on the malty side, but there’s some caramel as well. Thin-bodied boring beer, with almost no finish, just some vague grain- and malt-notes. Boring! (070213)

Draught. Dark brown color, brown tan head. Crisp menthol-hoppy aroma with touch of brown sugar. Light to medium-bodied. Smooth mouthfeel, also very carbonated. Not very strong palate: some malts, light hoppy bitterness in the finish. Cross-over of Newcastle Brown Ale and Kilkenny.
