Loved this - tried it for the first time the other day. Second to my fave, whitbeer Hoegaarden.
If you detect any flavor whatsoever from Harp, it is most likely due to oxidation if it was in a bottle or dirty lines if it was on draft. Harp is not a beer that people drink for the flavor.
Harp does have flavor. None of us can ascribe motivation to others.
I can't imagine anything in Harp Lager that would give any kind of unusual flavor. Most likely age and light-struck factors make the beer a bit weird.
I have picked up on black currant in Harp.. Most Irish bars have a bottle on the shelf and it is sometimes requested by the locals to lace on top of a pint of Guiness. Might be a possibility, but there is something there.
Look on the ingredient list.
I was drinking Blue Moon Lager the other day and it tasted distinctly of cilantro to me. Took a look, and there it was: coriander seeds (aka. cilantro seeds).
Brewers are not required to list ingredients in the United States.
You were drinking Blue Moon Belgian White, not lager.
Thanks for the correction and info. Maybe a website would list ingredients even if the brewer's not required to on the bottle itself?
Thanks - tried that. Found nada. Aside from that it's brewed with barley.
I had a Harp a few months ago and found it pretty tasteless; Hoegaarden, on the other hand, is a decent witbier.
no coriander in Harp to my knowledge
