I try very hard to enjoy Smithwicks, only because it’s made by Guinness. In the end, it just doesn’t live up to the majesty of a good Guinness Draught.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy dark copper/orange/brown color with a one and a half finger white mushroom cap of a head. As the head died down, there was some nice clingy somewhat foamy lacing gracing the sides of the glass.
The smell had a fairly rich dark nutty aroma with light gestures of caramel and toffee notes to blend and sweeten.
The taste was sweet with a light nutty caramel/ toffee toastiness going on in there on the side.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat there but showed a decent smoothness to pervade throughout.
Overall, for the style, this one is good for me, not bad at all. Pass the fish n ’ chips.
