Smithwick’s Pale Ale is a quality beer with a fuller taste, craft brewed with 100% pale ale malt and aromatic hops.

bottles from gormelys centra. citrus on the nose. crisp pale flavor . nice head and lacing throughout. a decent session beer. although not overly complex and too dry for my liking. giving you a very dry aftertase that lasts. must try brew with Amarillo hops and recreate similar myself.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l. Clear dark golden color with creamy white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of grassy hops, fruits and biscuity malt. Smooth and rich malty flavor, pretty well balanced and finished with pleasant and long hoppy aftertaste. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Better than draught Smitty’s ale...

sawmill2188 (21) - Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 Decent beer, nothing to write home about. Full bodied pale ale, with fine drinkability, slightly bitter. Again, nothing fancy going on with this beer.

SanfordBrewer (1382) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Translucent gold with a dense white head. Thin body with high carbonation.

Aroma: pale malt, fruity floral hop like goldings.

Taste: grainy pale malt, shrubby hops like pacific varieties, fruity esters, and a grainy cereal note.

Lorenasa (153) - Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Poured from tap. Pours a golden color with a thick white head made of tiny bubbles. Aroma of hops. A complex flavor starting smooth and water-like but quickly transitioning to a sweet corn middle to bitter and hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (2393) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2012
Half a pint from tap at McHugh’s, Belfast. Clear golden with a white head. Light fruity and malty aroma with some hints of metal and soap. Quite dissapointing. Slightly fruity but not much flavor or bitterness.(2011-06-10)

At McGann's in Doolin. Plain looking but some lacing. Kathy says you pronounce it Smithicks or you get a blank stare. Nose is great citrus and pine. Piney malty palate. Pretty decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
