Golden body with a ever-so-slightly off-white frothy head, leaving lots of nice lacing.
The aroma consists of toasted barley malt and some herbal, floral hops.
As for the taste, the hop bitterness comes in at the first of the sip, with a slight floral-ness, then leaving you to a nice mouthful of toasted barley malts, with some sweetness, and an almost undetectable bitterness.
The drinkability is extremely high. It's smooth, and the mouthfeel is on the light side of medium; and the carbonation is high in the mouthfeel as well as the palate.
This is a damn good beer. Best lager I've ever had. Screw the critics. This is gold, lager or not.

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.
