Can. Light golden amber color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Light aroma of hops and grassy malt. Taste is light citrus and slightly herbal hops. A brisk tingle of carbonation and a finish of dry herbal hops round it out. It’s a bit lighter on the hops than I expected for a pale ale but actually pretty decent.

On tap. The beer starts smooth, easy to drink with only a bit of aroma. Easy to drink. The aftertaste is flat in aroma, hints of sweetness, Slightly hoppy. --> Not a really great Pale Ale. 6/12/5/16

Ungstrup (30390) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 22, 2014
Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and dusty hops, leading to a bitter finish. The body is light.

Tall pint can, part of the "Irish Beer Discovery Pack" sold at the local Harris Teeter here in Huntersville, NC. Pours a golden color with a nice white foamy head. Aroma is of hops and some ale esters. Flavor is slightly sweet and a bit of the hops. Not the best from Swithwick’s, but it’s worth drinking during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.

RichardGretton (4420) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Amber beer with a strong white head. The aroma is lightly hopped with some toffee, and the flavour is bitter with some fruity and toffee'ness. Overall an average pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JesseMartineau (89) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 500ml bottle. Aromas of hop citrus, caramel, some fruits. Taste, like most Smithwicks, is lacking. Taste of caramel, turns bitter quite quick, carbonation is quite poor. The finish is bitter. It?s again, easy drinking, but not special. But it is the best of the brewer.

500 ml bottle. Thanks E!
Pours a golden colour with a small lacy head. Aroma of Goldings, heather and some malts. Flavour of sweet malts, British hops, cardboard, floral notes and pale malts. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bit harsh carbonation. Finishes malty and dry. Mild and bulky.

Can. Interesting. I was expecting a British style pale but this is more American. Not a fan.
