Surprised to find this in the mixed 8 pack "Irish beers" that was out for St. Pat's.
Not the Harp Lager that's been around so long, but a "Authentic Pilsner Lager*" as marked on the silver and blue can. 4.5 ABV marked on the side of the can.

A -- Nice clear gold with a sudsy white head that doesn't hold up long.

S -- Light DMS with some light graininess, but not much else.

T -- Sweet maltiness up front that folds into a dry graininess then finishes with lightly spicy and bitter hops. There's mild bready malt in the finish and good bitterness into the aftertaste.

M -- Body is light to medium light with a crisp to dry mouthfeel.

O -- This is not the Harp Lager in the brown bottles or from tap. The body is much lighter, the malt character much cleaner, and a very easy drinker. That said, it's probably on-par with some of the lesser German import Pilsners, but that also makes it a good choice over US macro brew if the options are given.
