COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I can?t get enough of this beer. It is a smooth ale no after taste. Tastes the same from start to finish. I like to make Blacksmiths tastes great with Guinness.

toscanoigor (88) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JUN 3, 2016
Do tap: É uma bela cerveja, precisa ser dito. Vermelha, clara, com boa formação de espuma. Aroma de caramelo bem leve. Sabor de malte, caramelo, um pouco frutada. Tem um corpo leve, desce suave, boa carbonatação. É uma cerveja decente, quase ubíqua na Irlanda, disputando com a Guinness.

Pumpkin87 (227) - - MAY 21, 2016
Pours clear coppery brown with small-medium off-white head, which goes quickly but leaves some nice lacing and small skim. Big caramel nose with yeast and some nuttiness. Palate follows suit, with caramel, burnt toast, slight fruitiness that tends toward pumpkin plus a touch of hop bitterness on the finish. In no way is this complex or nuanced, but it’s a delicious session beer that’s gone before you know it.
