2.7/5  rDev -19.9%

Smithwick's was a dark amber color with a trace of copper. The head was insubstantial and there was no lace. The aroma was meek, a little caramelly with a slight floral bouquet. As for taste, there was not much happening. It was mellow, and dry with slight touches of caramel, coffee, a bit of sweetness, and a little hop bite. The finish was dryish and chalky. Overall I was disappointed. To me it was a bland beer.

Serving type: on-tap
