Poured from can. Floral and hay aromas. Clear golden color with with white head. Very light bitter taste. Light body, thin texture, and soft carbonation. Overall and easy drinking crisp brew.

Guinness!! Harp is made by Guinness so let's see what those redheads have to offer.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle poured for appearance, let's hope I don't spill this one.

Appearance (4) : Fluffy, thick white 3 finger head. No trace of receding. Beautiful golden yellow color with great clarity. This is really a beauty to behold.

Smell (4) : Fresh. Springy. Orange and lemon zest, crisp clean water, beautiful non-bitter floral hops that grace the nose like a new day. Just a wonderful, non offending smell. Man if this pans out I just might have to start buying this brew.

Taste (3.75) : Good, medium bodied flavor with the signature Guinness bitter-zing. I'm getting light pine hops, lemony wheat, slight butter beans, ending with an uncommonly fresh wooden flavor finish. Something's a little off in regards to a bitter citrus surrounding the aftertaste (kind of like a rotten orange rind?) which keeps it from being pure perfection but otherwise it's just...Delicious.

Mouthfeel (3) : Medium bodied, slightly smooth, carbonated and ending wet and, again...woody. The citrus bitter note at the end keeps it from being 100% drinkable (poundable) but overall it's not a bad mouthfeel.

Overall (3.72) : A good lager representative of the style in spades. I was expecting some Irish weirdness but instead I got a pleasant beer that was both drinkable and enjoyable. Only gripe I have is the piney citrus bitter that's plaguing the drink. It is however reminiscent of a more pleasurable IPA. But since I don't like IPA's in general I'd say, remove that and it's bliss. This was a pleasant experience.
