A: Pale golden color, nicely carbonated, small white bubbly head.

S: Sweet and malty, not very strong, but pleasant.

T/M: Much like the aroma, this is simple, direct, clean maltiness. Sweet and very straightforward, the barest touch of bitterness on the way down, and no aftertaste.

O: A typical malt-heavy Euro lager, but a fine one for the style because it's so crisp and refreshing.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a very big (2" +) foamy head. Spotty lace. Clear golden color. Very nice.

S: Very grainy. Like cooked corn.

T: Still very corny. Bitterness is moderate. Clear, crisp, okay.

M: Med-low carbonation. Good texture. Well balanced.

D: Decent. Maybe not my fav but okay.

I like Lagers. They are what I want when I am enjoying a meal. I like ales and heavier beers too, but Lagers can hit the spot and not fill you up when you want to eat some food and drink beer.

Harp has your typical clear golden color. Lots of carbonation. It has a slight floral hoppy smell.

It is a crisp beer, easy to drink. Some slickness to the mouthfeel. Slightly heavier than your typical American lager. The hop bitterness is there in the finish.

This is a good beer, worth checking out.
