There is really nothing redeemable about this beer. Way to bitter, initial taste is horrible, then it goes down your throat, and the moment you finish it, you want to spit it out, overall, not very good.

The worst irish beer; guinness only w´ll sell its stout´s; this irish lager, no comments about its label; appearance its closer to american lager´s, but dont; mouthfeel rich in malt and hops, smell, taste and drinkability is lower in average; try with cheese and snacks only; 45% recommended.

Reader beware! The picture of this beer on this page is NOT what it is now! This beer has been disgustingly raped and violated in the most disturbing manner. Without going into much detail, I rated this beer very poorly not so much by the way it is now, but more so by the way IT USED TO BE!!!

Currently this beer tastes allot like any other, common U.S. beer, most notably Budweiser, and even provides one with the same headache from the fake, watered down ingredients as you would expect from a few other A/B products.

Harp Lager, when it use to be bottled in the picture as you see here, was an excellent, UNIQUE, readily available Irish Lager. But with great shame they've destroyed it.

If you like common American lagers then by all means, pay more money for this and you'll be happy. However, if you are a fan of Harp Lager from the last century, or have a more developed, educated palette with respect to beer, don't buy this! It's garbage, and no where near what they want for it.
