It would be a good beer on tap but out of the bottle it is very skunked. A typical import problem.

A little thin on the palate but otherwise a very nice lager! With food it becomes even sweeter, but it is easy to drink either way. Itís the palest lager Iíve seen, with a thin but pleasant aroma. Overall, good to just sit and drink, or good with food. It might be a tiny bit TOO sweet to be one of my absolute favorites but a good one nonetheless.

I like this lager. This is a nice summer (warm weather) drinker. Nice head, crisp and smooth. This is the key ingredient if you like black and tans, the best is 50% Harp and 50% Guinness mixed in a tall pils glass. Much better than the pre-mixed Black and Tans.

Iíve never been much of lager fan, but, HARP is a fine lager. Smooth and crisp. I could sense a taste of lime pulp. Very close to an ale.

I drink Harp if Bass is not available. Makes a good alternative.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Draught. yellow with white head. Macro smelling aroma with a bit of hop nose. Flavor is uninteresting with a slightly skunky aspect to it. Finish is a bit tangy. Not a very "premium" lager in my books.

Not bad, not great. Tastes just like Killianís Irish Red.

It used to better (at least in America) when we got the real Irish stuff. Beer contract brewed in Canada is NOT as good as the original (witness Kirin, Fosterís). Just average.

Good mass production beer, although the last few I purchased have been skunked.
