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...

Fine, solid, but nothing to write home about. This is some folksí choice for the tan in a Black and Tan, but Bass blows it out of the water, probably because itís an ale. For a lager, though, Harp is decent, especially as Ireland is not known for their bottom-fermented stuff. Good with pizza.

Only a very slight hint of skunkyness, but itís not off-putting and reminds me of Grolsch. The beer it self is great, although a tad too expensive for me to have all of the time. One of my faves though. Guinness continues to release nothing but top quality beer.
