APPEARANCE: actively bubbly, light gold body; thick, rocky snow-white head; lacing beautifully etches the glass...

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...

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.
