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.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Dark ruby/amber body, tight nitro-looking white head. Nice looking lace too. Aroma undetectable in the smoky bar. Flavor is moderately malty, a wee bit of hops squeezed in at the finish. Drinkable, but ho-hum in general.

Smithwicks on draft at WJ McBrides by the Kansas Speedway is a very nice Irish Pub. Food was good, beer was cold and delicious. Smithwicks was a very nice Ale. Would have scored higher with me but I felt it was a little thin for an Irish Ale. Smooth and Drinkable, its a solid beer. If you are by the Racetrak in Kansas City, good beer on tap is a beautiful thing.

Clear amber color with a medium off-white head. Very light earthy nut aroma and flavors. Very soft thin feel. Extremely watery.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Deep ruby color with a medium off-white head. The aroma and flavor were not impressive in any way...slight nutty tones, bready tones, and a gentle earthiness in the aftertaste. The feel was sickly soft and thin...semi-wet finish.

[email protected] in a hole. Small, thin white head; dark chestnut coloured liquid, clear, no lace--doesn’t look great. Light-medium body; light foamy carbonation; fairly dry. Aroma of wet paper, caramel; earthy; pale malts; apple. Flavor is musky; apple skin; light bitter finish; bready (wheat); raw yeast, lightly toasted flavor; plain malt profile: sugar, light carmel; yeast and hops provide most of the flavor: rich and full flavors in small amounts. VERY european; earthy, pale malts, mellow hops, dark and enjoyable.

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Very disappointing. This was one of the "better" beers at the bar I was at. Both cold and warm, all I got was a slight bitterness. A little hop bitterness but otherwise very bland. At least it was refreshing.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Had this during the St. Pats day rounds. Slight malt nut aroma, dry malt bitter taste a little sweet fruit in aftertaste at first, but it quickly dried out and became bitter. Probaly a good beer to go with your corned beef, but not interesting enough to reflect on by itself

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Deep clear ruby pour with copious offwhite head and decent lacing. Strong rich malty aroma. Flavors of dry bread, yeast and light caramel malt. The strong dry oak and bitter finish kind of bother’s me, but is probably typical for the style. Leaves too much of a bitterish astringent aftertaste for me.
