On tap at Keegan’s in a pint glass. Caramel and brown in color with tannish head. Malty aroma with some nutty characteristics and subtle sweetness. Taste has qualities of caramel and toffee with a little bit of sweetness. Very thin mouthfeel. It’s still a good fallback option if you’re at an Irish establishment and they are out of Harp. Nothing to write home about. lobosaintori (89) - - NOV 13, 2015

Originally rated on 2/6/08- I consider smithwicks to be a good beer because its very well balanced, not overpowering in anyway in regard to flavor, smell, mouthfeel, ect without being watery . This is a good beer for people who dont drink much or have limited backgound in dark beers. Worth a try. beer_rookie (635) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Pre-pour notes. As I opened the bottle, the aroma from the aroma very clear. Very nice.Bcoble003 (291) - Jblm, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Aroma is nutty and roasted malt. It’s bready, ap I don’t know if that’s yeast or malts. But it’s very tasty.
Mouthfeel is pretty thin. It’s light, and crisp. It’s super drinkable. It has a little Guiness creaminess in there.
Overall, this is very good. I’m pleasantly surprised. I expected much less, and boy was I surprised. Certainly, this is a must try. Red ales, are not my favorite, but I could be persuaded otherwise with ales like this. Do try this. I’m glad I did.
A pretty good beer out of bottle... Cool October night. Now I must continue to watch the fire.

This is probably my Favorite beer! It's easy to drink and I love the roasted flavor in it. I have been getting this for a while now, I really need to try more Red Ales.

Draft in Ayre, MA. Creamy white head on charcoal brown. Soft sweet malt aroma. Smooth body, raisins and sweet fruity malt. Solid. Not a ton going on. Feels a bit under attenuated. andrewje41 (4153) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Draft pour pint at the Wilde Rover. Pours a dark brown color with a fizzy bubble head. Seemed firing to rate this for the first time in am Irish pub, though I would prefer to be across the pond and doing it right. I’ll pretend for now. Creamy body with a nutty malt flavor. Has little flavor, but not bad. Not bad, but not really that good either. brewgianlu (11) - - AUG 20, 2015
Classic red. For me it isnt fantastic. It is quite good. Surely in stile (it is guinness ) beauty to see, with aroma of bread and spicy.
