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.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 1, 2002
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.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2002
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.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2002
Good stuff. Thin, low aroma, but still a good mass-market brew.

cathcacr (642) - Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2002
For a while I thought this was the best lager there was out there. Nicer taste than the typical pale/golden lager, but since I found the Dortmunder Gold, Iíll go with the latter anytime. Good, above-average beer.

Deep, fruity sweet aroma. Fuller bodied than most lagers. I favor this one warm or slightly cool, which allows the flavors to develop. Nice barley finish.
