A nice alternative to Killians or other Irish Reds. Slightly hazy reddish in color. Thin head with very little lacing present. Nice taste, slightly fuller than Killians. Excellent drink-ability, goes down smoothly and very quickly was ready for another. No overpowering after taste. Definitely would drink again.

Hope this is the right brew...
A light malt aroma, light aroma all together. A medium red crystal clear brew with good head retention. It tasted of light caremel and a low carb and no bitterness. It was smooth and crisp id say a good summer brew. Worth a buy and maybe a few more.

Buona. Leggera. Gusto marcato e persistente. Retrogusto amaro quanto basta. Nel complesso ottima.

Not a massive dan of this. Great on the palate but overall not one I'd choose to drink on a regular basis

Pours a deep red-orange colour, with two fingers of head. Looks delicious. Smells of malt (caramel) and fruits. Taste is bready, with faint hop notes and a long, somewhat bitter finish. Pleasing to the palate and goes down easier than water for me! Also makes the best Black & Tan (or "Blacksmith") when combined with Guinness. Overall, my favourite Irish Beer.
[EDIT] - My 500ml can is 5% alc, but is clearly labelled Smithwicks Draught. Not sure if I have reviewed in the correct section, but I imagine they are close enough in taste!

Poured from can. Poured medium copper brown colour with good head. Looks great !! Mild malt aroma with slight sweetness. Tastes about the same. Nothing really memorable, but definitely a good quality. Easily drinkable.

caramel, grass, resin, red, brown, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, umami, light body, thin feel, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter, long finish
Really nice dark ruby pour with minimal white head. Aromas of sweet dark caramel are subtle with more green grass and tree sap pronounced. Thin bodied and lightly carbonated with a slick mouthfeel. Taste is more on the bitter side with some light sourness and sweet as well. Aftertaste is bitter and a light astringency lingering between sips.

De belles couleurs et fraîche à la pression. Un peu frustré, par son goût qui est présent, certes mais un peu trop doux à mon goût !
