This is my default Irish beer. I can order this without worrying about availability at pretty much any Irish/English pub.
Harp is right up my alley. I have accepted that I prefer lagers to all other beers, and Harp has the balance and taste that I enjoy. Not too heavy, and not too light. However, it has to come off tap if you're really going to enjoy it. I'm in Florida, so bottles don't exactly hold up here. Overall, very solid. Anybody that hates mass produced corn beer should enjoy a Harp.

A: Very light amber color. Little white head dissipates quickly.

S: Light. Dryness comes through a bit. A little sweetness...

T: Pretty good here. A little yeasty but there are some good hints of malt and dryness. Also a little hops as well. There is something there even though it is pretty light.

M: sits alright. Bubbly.

Overall a pretty average beer. Certainly better than any macro lager but certainly nothing to go crazy over. Perfect for after a long day when you want to take it easy.
