2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Appearance very clear, bubbly, light amber, fair quick-dying head, nice lacing. Aroma definitely on the weak side, but has some nice hops, sweet malt. Flavor a little more pronounced, but nothing special; decent maltiness, light grain flavor, little hops, with an extremely short finish that leaves no aftertaste. Body perhaps a little fuller than the average pils. Drinkable, but doesn’t do anything to convince me that Harpoon is better than middle-of-the-road.

It’s OK for a pilsener. Would be good for introducing a Bud drinker to real beer

A buddy of mine dropped one of these off for me and said he found it in his closet...and didnt know where it came from, or how long it had been there...Hehe. Clear pale gold. Crisp clean malt nose. Small white head. Sweet at first, quick, light bodied, clean dry lightly hopped finish. Nothing special, perhaps thats why it isnt produced anymore.

Once again Harpoon put out a beer that I can say I like. This is a beer that the unknowledgable beer drinker as well as the beer afficianado could drink together. A simple traditional pilsner with obvious flavor that sets it apart from the mass produced pilsners.
