When poured the color presented was a dark red with a faint head that didn't last long. Spotty traces of thick lace are shown circling the glass. If it had more head retention this could beer a high rated beer. Drinkability is exceptional! I look for Smithwicks at every Pub or any Restaurant I go to. It's the perfect staple session brew. Perfect malt/carbonation/hops ratio. No real bitterness noted on the finish. Smooth and refreshing, it's lighter than it's color appears. Slight hop aroma, but mostly all light sweet malts. Aroma could use a touch more hops. Also, On the finish I can taste some Phenolic action. The light sweet honey taste is delightful. The taste is not too complex giving it only a 4. Overall Great,,a must try.
