I was very disapointed. It was like nothing I expected it to be. I was reminded of what my first sip of beer was like. Being the brother of Guinness, now that was very disapointing, I thought it was the brother of Bud. I enjoy it better as a half & half, thats what itís use should remain.

Good but not great. I liked it but not for the price. It had a strong yet smooth taste to it.

A decent beer that needs to br consumed quickly, it tends to die. Head is small and not lacey at all. Great in a black and tan though

If you like Coors Light...youíll hate Harp. A passion of mine limited by price.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 August 2001: OK American style lager from the folks at Guinness. Of note: the gorgeous creamy meringue-like head, a nice breadlike aroma (dies quickly though); typically sour lager aftertaste. Betterín a lot of ímainstreamí American alternatives--but also quite a bit more expensive. 6/4/6/3/12 3.1

January 2005: On tap at Finnegans Pub, Burlington. Among the best of the offerings at this sad little divy bar, alas. Four years on...I donít find this really any better than typical BMC crap, thereís a bit of stale doughy malt, sure, and the carbonation isnít quite as agressive as it is in say Bud Light....but thereís very little here to mention all in all. After this, I switched to Scotch as I couldnít face anything else this bad...

Turned flat and sour fast..head was more fizzy than creamy..definitely not one of my favorites
