Small white head dies into a nice lacing above a clear golden colored beer.

Aroma is sour grain malts with a little breadiness and maybe a little hops adding to the sourness.

A lighter bodied beer with a pretty big taste with a lot of sour grain malts, corn syrupiness, and some hops to a lesser degree.

A slightly dry aftertaste that brings with it some slight sourness.

When i first saw this in the glass I thought "Yippee, another Budweiser wannabee", but this beer had a lot more tastes coming through, I could drink a few of these.

Hap & Harry's Tennessee Lager
on tap @ Edley's BBQ, Nashville, TN - 4 April 2015
$4 / pint

The label and the story behind Hap & Harry's are probably the most interesting things about it. Not that it's bad, it's OK, but it's just an average amber ale. The malt is lightly toasty, and there's some very mild hop flavor to it as well, but other than that there's really nothing going on. If you like Yuengling Traditional Lager you'd probably like this although it's not as sweet. I would, however, like to try the Hap & Harry's Lynchburg Tennessee Lager which is supposed to have a little more maltiness to it.

Hap & Harry's lager (Nashville, TN) on tap at the Casual Pint in Knoxville.

Pale golden with a very short-lived head 

Looks like a pitiful light lager, but has a decent aroma and flavor. 
Mostly malty in the nose but with a subtle hop presence. 

Flavor: notably more hoppy that the aroma indicates, with a lingering if light hop note. 

Feel: light body; crisp carbonation. Thin but not watery.

O: good flavor for style

No head, no lace. Yellow color and nearly clear.

It smells like wet cardboard and brewery floor. Not attractive.

Round, malty flavor. Nearly no hop which makes this slightly sweet. Thin bodied and highly carbonated. No aftertaste.

Standard brown bottle, as pictured, was the daily special (lots of advertising, table toppers, posters, and it was on sale).
Pours with no real head to speak of, bubbles up and disappears, no lace.
Clear, yellow color.
It has no real smell, maybe some wet grass.
Somewhat malty flavor, slightly sweet, no hops.
Thin body, lots of carbonation leaves a tingly afterbite.
Crisp, light, no heavy flavors. Good for a hot day on the patio
