3.05/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

A fairly pale color with a decent head that recedes slowly. Smell is fairly sweet, floral in a way and overall pleasant. Lacing is light but noticeable. The taste is very watery and carbonated. I feel there should be more going on - based on the smell in particular - but there isn't really. On the positive side there is a little bit of hops and a pinch of malt. I really liked Harp for a while but didn't drink it for a year and my tastes must have changed. It is refreshing but there are better examples of the style.

Harp Premium lager 6pk bottles $7.99(OH)

12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. No freshness date. "From the makers of Guinness".

Pours a nice pale gold color. Put a little air between the bottle and glass towards the end of your pour. A nice three finger, creamy bright white head that last a long time. It give way to amazing lacing.

It smells rather adjunct, if you ask me. The malts smell great, and a light hop is detected. However a sweet corny smell is dominate here.

The taste is better than the smell but not by much. Bready malts, followed by a nice light hop taste in the middle. Towards the end there is a corny taste, but it is well hidden behind the dryness of the hops. The adjunct is better hidden in the taste than the smell.

mouth feel is decent. Not watery like Guinness, more towards the medium body. The malts and hop dryness cling to your palate, hiding the corn taste.

Overall i was not expecting too much from this brew. And that's what i got. It the best adjunct brew i have had to date. I just did not expect a corny taste in a euro pale lager. Would i buy this again, probably not.

Sampled tonight on 4/5/14. From the Guinness Brewing Company in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada (Not from Ireland anymore it looks like) and has a green label instead of like the one in the picture. 12 ounce bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute glass.

Pours a yellow-gold in color with a half-finger foamy white head that settles to just a thin head on top. Some spotty lacing was seen with each sip but settles back down the sides of the glass. The aroma is of some grains, yeast with a hint of lemon. The taste is actually better than I expected with the grains, yeast coming together nicely with a hint of corn sweetness. Maybe a very light taste of citrus mixed in there also. Well balanced with perfect carbonation. Goes down easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste. Really liked this one.
