An okay lager. Pours a golden color with a nice white head. Aroma of malts. Easy to drink. Not bad.

joejames (454) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass pours clear light golden. One finger white head that laces well and retains nicely. Aroma is grassy and herbal. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, soapy mouth feel. Finishes slightly dry. Tasting notes of herbs, grass, light caramel and bread. It’s actually not that bad for what it is.

Can sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Tom L. Clear gold, white ring. Sweet and a little honey in the mouth, quite tasteless with very little bitterness in the mouth. Very light, sweet, a little caramel finish.

Visuel : Couleur : dorée. Apparence : claire.
Arôme : Grains de malt, biscuits, légèrement fruité (agrumes), notes de houblon herbeux.

En bouche : Corps : mince-moyen. Effervescence : moyenne. Texture : légèrement huileuse. Finale : courte, composée de notes amères de houblon herbeux.

DSG (10542) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 22, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. As "Harp Premium Irish Lager". 4%. Clear golden. Aroma of paper, acetaldehyde. Sweetish flavor, papery, with an apple note, and a bitterish note in the finish. Light-bodied.

Cunningham (6441) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2015
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Malty, some grain and herbal aroma with an ok intensity. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Malty, some grain and herbal flavor. Mild easy drinkable lager.

bottled - pale golden in color. Skunky aroma. Acceptable but nothing special.

originally rated on 2/6/08. Harp for me is a good all around brew, not to pricey, and has enough flavor to keep you interested. Not the greatest beer out there but it is a good standby. Golden color, mild hops and yeast flavors with a smooth finish.

I had it on tap. It pours a clear golden color with a white head and some lacing. The aroma is corn , bread, and grass. The taste is the same without the skunky bitterness you get with many beers of the style. It’s a smooth and drinkable beer. It’s a good value beer.
