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.

Typical Euro Pale Lager smell & taste. I agree this is a smooth lager. Easy drinking & sessionable. Cheers! B-

Prettty solid beer. Only let down by a little grit on the finish. You're can do much worse than Harp.

Good, smooth lager. Taste is very pleasant. This could very easily be my main beer in the beer fridge during fall and winter.

Look: Standard clear, gold lager with a thin white head of foam and lots of carbonation.

Smell: Pale malt, some spicy hop notes, a bit of orange peel.

Taste: Biscuity malt sweetness and that’s about it. Actually closer to an amber ale in some ways.

Mouthfeel: Slightly thicker than average, highly carbonated.

Overall: A lot better than I was expecting, with a fuller body and breadier taste than an average lager.

Brilliant golden hued with a fingernail of off white on top. That foam dissipates nearly entirely a few minutes later. The aroma is of grassy hops and slightly dank well water. I'm tasting grassy German hops and light cereal grains. The mouth is light and quaffable.

Pours a clear amber with a half inch, fairly well retained white head that left some splotchy lacing. Smells of bread, hops and an earthy quality. Taste follows the nose with addition notes of honey and grass. Light bodied, well carbonated, very mild bitterness. Nothing great but quite drinkable.
