Nice gold color with white foamy head. Moderate grain with mild hop bitterness, maybe even moderately bitter in comparison to many of it's Euro/American lager peers. Semi-dry, with a full mouthfeel. Overall, very middle of the road with little to nothing setting it apart from many other AALs or imported lagers. I think Harp has a lot of similarities to Hamm's, which is not a criticism of either taste-wise, but if considering price there is no reason I would choose Harp over Hamm's... but your results may vary.

This is my new favorite beer over Newcastle. Don’t like the look of the bottle. Wish it was something a little more traditional Irish pub like.

The formula has changed, and I don't like the new version.

Right color and properly carbonated. Nose is underwhelming but has the corn-sweet malt character. Taste hits the malt and slightly peppery hops. Light body and medium carbonation. It hits the textbook notes of the style.

From notes 10/10/13: Pours a clear deep straw producing 1-4 fingers (variable by pour) of white, soap bubble head that leaves variable lacing ranging from minimal to heavy rings and streaks. Head retention is also variable from rapidly diminishing to somewhat lasting. Aroma is sweet malt, grain/cereal, floral and grassy hops. Taste is sweet fronted with honey cereal grains, bread, light lemon and grass in a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with moderate carbonation, watery with mild pepper spice on the back and sides of the tongue.
