3.45/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Light gold, bubbly, carbonated. Solid white soapy head from a hard pour. Surpringsly decent lacing.
S: There isn't any strong smells off it, pretty much smells like a pale lager. Get traces of yeast, but that is about it.
T: Tastes like a typical lager with just slighty more hops. Slight tanginess with the malts, and has a crisp finish. Has a noticeable grassy hop bitterness that rests on the back of the tongue. Not many strong flavors from it.
M: Body is surprisingly nice, great feel and very smooth. A tad fizzy, but not bad.
D: Easy drinking lager, pretty standard for the style. I would have liked a richer flavor from the malts, but it is what it is.

The Harp lager I'm holding has a green label on the bottle that looks different from the one pictured above. The label says that it is brewed in New Brunswick, Canada. The beer pours with a good head. Excellent lacing that just keeps sticking around. Straw yellow body... maybe light golden. Lively carbonation.
Mild. Bread. Faint lemony hops.
A well balanced lager beer. Mild bready malts. Mild citrus and pine flavored hops. Even milder bitter hops on the finish. Do I detect a little bit of corn?
Somewhere between light and medium bodied. Good level of carbonation. Mild bitter finish. The bready malt flavor dries up and tastes of corn a bit as the flavor sits your mouth.
A pretty good lager. The hopping is nice. I think they could improve the malt body of this beer to give it a cleaner taste. There is a stale, corn, cardboard thing going on in the finish that detracts from this beer's full potential. Overall it's still a decent drink. I would drink it again if offered. But I probably won't be seeking it out.
