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.

Visited Ireland for the first time and fell in love with this beer. Couldn’t get enough of it. Haven’t had it in a bottle... as far as on tap, fresh Ireland, I would rate is as my number 1 beer there.

I have traveled the World and this is by far the best beer I have tasted. A group of us went to Irland a few years ago and we all fell in love with it. I amways make sure friends bring me back a pew pints when they travel to Ireland. I here it is now in the states but still unable to locate in Chicagoland area.

Best Ale in the world. Bass isn’t even close. It is available in just about every Irish pub and usually where Guiness is served... it is sweeping across the country by storm. The taste is smooth and just the right malty blend.

A darker amber color with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops with nutty accents. Flavor follows aroma, currently my favorite pint.
