Pours dark reddish brown tiny head.Taste mild bitter after taste.I think this glass would taste better if it was not served so cold. After the glass set and got just a little bit warmer it tasted more smooth.

To me, this sets the standard for Irish Red Ale. It is dry, balanced, and has a wonderful aftertaste. I've tried other Red Ales that aim for a bolder flavour, but Smithwick's is consistently enjoyable. Overall, it is also well priced for an imported beer. This is a go-to for me, any it is in heavy rotation for St. Patty's day celebrations.
