I had my first Smithwick's while in divinity school last summer. It's dark full bodied flavor was the perfect beverage for the peppered venison tenderloin I sizzled up for supper on several occasions. This is a smooth, non-bitter, manly brew.

11.2 ounce bottle.

A: Pours a clear copper with a solid one-inch thick off-white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves semi-rings and spots of lace.

N: Caramel malts, mild toffee, faintly floral with mild honey overtones.

T: Slightly toasted and roasted malts, caramel and toffee, biscuits and nuts.

M: Semi-moderate body and medium carbonation. Clean, sharp, semi-dry malty and nutty finish.

O: Solid for the style - enjoyed. Note: the bottle looks like the one posted for the "superior" Irish ale, but this one clearly says "premium".
