Picked up a six pack of Smithwick's at M & R Liquor (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/10885) in Carpinteria CA. Great place to find some good stuff.
Smithwicks is one of those beers I could drink and drink and drink. Not that I'm a big fan, but it goes down pretty darn easy. I'm not huge on hops and this wasn't overwhelming, so that's probably part of the reason I'm good with it. It doesn't leave much of an aftertaste either, so that's a bonus. Other than that it's pretty average and nothing to get terribly excited over.

Poured from an 11.2 ounce Euro-brown bottle into a shaker pint. A moderate pour produces about one inch of a creamy, pale tan head that proves quite sticky. The color is a deep copper with high carbonation.
I perceive that old familiar aroma of minerals and faint, tea-like hops that distinguish many of these beers from the Brittanic isles. The flavor is malty and a little sweet but with a fairly dry finish. The malt tastes of caramel, but hints of a honey-like quality can be detected as well. The body is medium thin and lager-like, but with a creamy mouth feel from the head and carbonation. A little bit of grassy hop bitterness settles on the tongue.
This is a fairly light, sessionable and refreshing beer but with a good deal of flavor. Nothing special, but nothing overbearing or off-putting- just an all around good beer. Bought as part of a six pack for about $8.50 (on sale) at Hennessey Market in uptown Butte. Believe it or not, this is a fairly rare beer to find in these parts.
