APPEARANCE: actively bubbly, light gold body; thick, rocky snow-white head; lacing beautifully etches the glass... AROMA: soapy, lightly doughy presence; just as readily, thick beefy aroma less appealing than its appearance... PALATE: medium-bodied, slightly oily end; slightly fizzy,, but otherwise drinkable ...TASTE: slightly sweet,, toasted oat base; some lemon, some less noteworthy buttery flavors... OVERALL: an old Bloomsburg bar favorite revisited; situated among the usual Guinness offerings, not a bad diversion from its scrumptious stout...

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.
