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.

Draft pours a copper gold. Not much head. Tastes smells malt wheat sweet a bit bitter finish. Kind of skunky. I’m not sure. Just plain boring. Not that good.

Taboada (328) - Compostela (Galiza), - SEP 11, 2014
Tasted several times. It has not intense aroma or taste but the combination and the balance between the components is really good and made a nice and refreshing beer. Next one please!

On Tap @ The White Horse Pub, Sarasota, FL. Weak & watery. Not much here. Almost taste like fruity dishwater. "Not my cup of tea".

Bork (164) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Essentially flavorless malty ale with an annoying tartness in the finish. Good looking but does not deliver.

vadie (704) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Ambré avec un tête petit et beige. L’arôme du malt et du caramel. Le goût à plein de malt et un peu du caramel avec un amertume léger dans la finale. Facile à boire avec la carbonatation doux.

BrewGoblin (300) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
Really no complaints here, nothing remarkable though. Pretty nice orangey-brown colour with a fizzy off-white head. Smells and tastes of honey, light leather, caramel and brown bread malts. A medium mouthfeel on this Paddy makes it a really easy drinking pub classic.
