Harp Lager

Pours a vibrant and clear gold, little soapy white cap and some lace. In the nose, clean bready smell and light floral accents. In the taste, bread and biscuit notes, fresh herbal hops and mild but complimentary bitterness. Muted citrus fruit, honey and grass clippings. Light bodied feel with a crisp carbonation. Overall this is a solid, yet average lager. A good session beer with a low alcohol content and very soft yet agreeable flavor.

Appearance - Pours a clear, golden yellow with a white, finger width head. Fair retention. Lacing is spotty with decent stick.

Smell - Aroma consists almost exclusively of clean, sweet grain malt.

Taste - Just like it smells. Clean, crisp and sweet grain malt flavor, with a touch of honey. Finishes much in the way it starts. Very, very subtle grass bitterness near the finish after the beer warms.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body, with good carbonation. Silky on the swallow. Very drinkable.

Overall - This is a classic, simple lager done right. Very sessionable. While it presents very little to think about, it's something I could drink all night while watching tv or hanging out with friends.
