I had this beer in a Bar in Florida and am now on a mission to get it imported to America some how. Story is that they make this beer in Ireland and alot of the Irish bars make it for their patrons. The most amazing thing Ive ever tasted.

In the Republic of Ireland a Black and Tan is normally made from a half pint of Smithwick's topped off with Guinness.[citation needed] This version is also sometimes referred to as a "Blacksmith" or a "Light and Bitter". During the summer months stout drinkers may order a black and tan due to its lighter texture. Likewise ale drinkers may order a Smithwick's with a Guinness head. This is an ordinary pint of Smithwick's with the last inch or so topped off with Guinness.

A - Beautiful deep Amber color with a 2 finger or so head that lingered.

S - I rate every beers smell as average due to the fact that I can not smell

T - Smooth and Refreshing. I am not a Guinness draught fan but I am a Smithwicks fan. The combo of them both is simply irresistible .

M - Nothing but pure exitement and love. Almost like your first ever live sporting event with your dad.

O - P E R F E C T in every way possible
