Harp Lager

100% forgettable. Simply characterized as a standard lager, slightly above the quality of most North American macros, but lost in that sea of mediocrity that lies between those American domestics and the quality European lagers.

Appearance is OK (at least for 30 seconds) before the “at first decent” head dissipates to nothing. The smell? Well, smells like grainy beer! Slight skunky aroma with alcohol coming through strong. As is the usual case in American bars, the Arctic temperature that it is served at, quells any significant aroma or tastes before it warms up a little. When it does, it gets slightly better doing a decent job of refreshing. Carbonation is a little prickly for me too.

I wouldn’t throw this stuff away, but there would be 100s of others in the queue before it. Average in the extreme.
