Pours a nice light amber color with decent head retention. The smell had some hops to it, but also what seemed like cooked rice and little bit of oak. The flavor was a little underwhelming with most of the flavor being in the aftertaste. The beginning has a bit of bread flavor while finish has a bit of hop bite that lingers. Not bad, but nothing great either.

The aroma has lightly roasted malt, cereal grain

The flavor follows with those flavors as the beer is generally malty. Cereal grain and a decent body Lacking in flavor and then a corn-like flavor comes in. A slightly metallic finish.

Being from Ireland I drink a lot of this stuff. Light enough to guzzle all night and not have a banging head the next morning. Tip: If in Ireland ask for a Smithwicks with a Guinness head ;)
