Harp’s Irish Lager – For the Hippie-Hoppies!
Rejoice those that love a beer with strong texture and a bitterness that makes you reminiscent of your happiest days. Presenting to you Harp’s Irish Lager – produced by none other than the same company that brews Guinness (in fact it was first brewed by the Arthur Guinness’ brewery in Dublin).
The crisp, fizzy brew is a very summery drink and reminds you of sunny days (always a privilege in Ireland). Poured usually in a pint glass, Harp is also known to be served in a pilsner glass. It comes with a light head on pour, which dissipates rather quickly. The aroma has pleasant aromatic hops and light malt. Its flavor has a good balance of sweet, light malts with mellow leafy and floral hops. The carbonation is rather average and comes with a light to medium body. What I’d really recommend this for is its wet and grainy texture. Though quite bitter at first taste, it leaves a rather smooth aftertaste in your mouth. Once again, nothing overtly spectacular – but a clean, fizzy, good-looking lager to enjoy on a sunny day 🙂
