Harry's light is a full flavoured lager beer. Brewed with flavour in mind and given a perfect hop finish; you'd hardly notice the lower alcohol level. Ideally suited for the conservative drinker in mind.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2012
Very pale straw colour with a thin white head and large flabby bubbles. Aromas of biscuity malt and perfumy hops, so a pleasant surprise really. Actually rather lovely to smell. Cooling and wet with a twinge of fragrant lemon citrus and just a suggestion of bitterness with an astringent tang. Easily my pick of all the light beers

Draft. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes malt and and some metal. The flavor is sweet with notes of unfermented grain, combined with lighter notes of lemon and straw. The body is no wonder thin.

kyhwana (1) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 12, 2009 does not count
330ml bottle. Looks like murkey golden water. Slight malt taste at the start but turns into a thin, fizzy butterscotch after taste which isn’t pleasent at all. Disapointing attempt at a lower alcohol lager, I expected better.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 21, 2009
Bottle, pours a little murky, a dull gold, but with a good foamy white head. The cardboard aroma has a touch of vinegar. Not surprisingly a light moughtfeel. A good amount of malt on the palate initially, but the finish becomes thin and minerally. For 2.5% I potentially wouldn’t mind this, except for that vinegar on the nose.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, golden with a tiny, rough, white head. A touch of malt in the nose. Light-bodied, high in carbonation with weak notes of malt and a dry finish with only a hint of hops. Overcarbonated as many Harringtons are. 300108
