Good for a lager, but still a lager. Iíve used it for Half and Halves with Guinness before and since Iím not the best pourer, when I got to the bottom and there was more Harp than Guinness it was a dissapointment.

Clear,golden with a nice head. Slightly toasted malt with subtle hop bite. Clean and refreshing. Above average as lagers go.

Very good beer. Nice presentation with great flavor. Slighty hoppy finish. After 7 I didínt get a headache!

A decent lager. I wasnít expecting much from Harp to tell you the truth, but it poured to a nice, golden color in the glass and left a ton of lace. Slightly sweet with a nice hop twang on the finish. Very drinkable.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2002
a decent import lager. just decent. thicker mouthfeel than it looked. a little hoppy too. When Iím in the mood, Iím much more apt to order a íblack&taní(bass) than a íhalf&halfí (harp)

I see people talking Harp & Guiness to make a Black and Tan. Isnít it Guiness Stout and Bass Ale, ala the Beastie Boys - íMix the Guiness Stout with the Bass Aleí? Someone message me on this so I can clear it up.

Eh... If I want an imported lager Iíll drink Warsteiner. Helpful hint: Never ask for a black-and-tan in an actual Irish pub; the name refers to a much-hated English/Loyalist paramilitary group from the early days of Irish independence.

A very smooth lager. My overall impression was really good - its smoothness and crisp flavor will have me coming back. A note of spiciness, and I hear itís perfect with Guinness for the Black-and-Tan. I guess you could say Harp is to lager as Guinness is to stout.
