Smithwick’s

12 oz bottle as part of a six pack.
Body is a rather impressive brown/red with an excellent creamy head and some superb lace. Surprisingly good.
Nose yields a big malty presence plus a touch of hops – not much, rather a “kiss”.
The tastes are somewhat uninteresting an neutral, but the back end has a touch of bitterness. The bitterness is fleeting but surprisingly strong.
Quite a dry beer (despite the malt emphasis), and this is manifested in the finish which drops quite a profound bitterness on the tongue – odd! Strange beer that looks great and then comes back with some quite severe bitterness.
