2/2008 SMITHWICK’S IRISH ALE
From the maker’s of that super-duper brew, GUINNESS, comes… a bit of a disappointment. Smithwick’s might be good on tap –we don’t know– but in the bottle it’s no great shakes. It’s rather flat, yet a touch fizzy. It starts sweet then gets blandly bitter. In truth, it reminds us of some of our less-than impressive home brew experiments many moons back. We’ll drink bottled SMITHWICK’S if it’s free, but we won’t drop coin for it. (Rating **3/4)
