Since everyone else has described the flavor (which is all highly subjective), this is the "go-to" beer in my household. It's smooth and light and just an all-around solid Irish ale.
When I brew my Irish ale, this is the benchmark I use.

This is one of my favorite beers hands down.
The color is light brown and very clear. When poured it left a good 1.5" head that stuck around for quite a while and laced the glass nicely.
Smells great, like baked bread, somewhat malty, sweet.
Wonderful tasting beer. It has a very balanced taste roasty and malty and very comforting.
This beer is not too thick but also not too weak. It's got great carbonation and it's very smooth going down.
I could and have drank these all night long. No problem. In fact my picture is from Halloween three years ago where I was drinking pitchers of Smithwicks by myself. The wait to get a beer from the bar was half an hour long so when we got up there we would just order pitchers for ourselves and drink straight out of those. Needless to say it was a messy way to drink. But a fun one.

Every person has their own taste. This is the absolute best beer I have ever had. The color was a darkish brown red with a perfect cream color head. The taste and flavor of this beer far exceeded what I expected and left me wanting more. It was a heavy beer to me which is my style but may not be agreed upon my others. Overall perfection here in my book. I wouldnt change a thing, but thats all just opinion.

One of my favorites
Pours a nice mahogany color with a 1 finger off white head
Very light caramel smell
Nice light-to-medium mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation
Very nice semi-sweet malt taste with lingering hops at the end
Being able to find this almost everywhere (Meijers even has this in the cold section), pricing is right, makes this one of the best Irish Ales I've had.
