Harp Lager is the best selling lager in Ireland, and after rating it, the panel wondered why.
This pale lager from Diageo poured with a transparent golden color and a decent, lacy head that gave off a light, balanced lager smell.
However the taste was unimpressive to the panelists, who commented that it was so lacking, it showed up only as an aftertaste. And at that, it was grassy and somewhat metallic.
The light body did offer decent drinkability, though the panel didn’t find that a saving grace.
Appearance 6.5, Smell 5.83, Taste 16.83, Aftertaste 12.17, Drinkability 20.17
