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.

Nice and dark, looked quite rich. It wasn’t. Smithwicks was quite watery and lacked distinct rich flavor. I guess this is Irish Budweiser. It’s not bad, but not remarkable.

Une bière rousse assez agréable, peu de mousse, gout de malt avec légère amertume.

6/24/17 (Chicago). 16 oz draft pour into standard pint glass. $5.50 @ NW Vaughn’s. Dark copper pour, light tan head and carbonation. Light, sweet malt aroma. Mild sweet malt and chocolate taste. Light mouth feel and texture, minimal carbonation. Overall good offering.

Got this one from the St-Pat’s promotion at LCBO. Strong taste for a ’light’ beer. Must be the barley. Tasty beer and easy going. I like.

Aroma is metallic, earthy hops, slight caramel, a little dark fruit, eh. Appearance is amber, light tan head, clear. Taste is light, earthy hops, caramel, watery, metallic, not great. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light, bubbly carbonation, earthy hop caramel water aftertaste. Overall, not especially impressive, but easily crushed.

Tap at Sweenys Bar, Dublin. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a long-lasting frothy white head. The aroma is light grainy malt. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light crisp watery light fruit, metallic hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

dark red color. Looked promising but failed miserably. There’s next to nothing going on here. Very light ale. If Budweisier made an Ale, this would be it. Wouldn’t get this again.

Pours dark red with a nice head and good lacing. Tastes of caramel, breadiness, slight floral and nuts. Not bad for a light ALC beer. Great if I need to drive heavy equipment at work. lol, just kidding! ;)

This "Premium" ale gives a huge short lived head. Has no smell and is quite bland. This is not one I’ll be purchasing again.
