New Brew Friday Holiday Honey

Happy Friday beer aficionados!

This time around we have Holiday Honey from Old Credit Brewing Co. out of Mississauga, Ontario. We visited the brewery to pick up some of the beer and the brewery is in a great location right down near the Lakeshore. The brewery itself is pretty blasé, a red brick store front, some beer historical memorabilia in the shelves, a few fridges stocked with the three available beers and a nice gentleman behind the counter offering wisdom on which beer to pick up. I’ll post a brewery write-up soon.

The said gentleman recommended their award-winning Holiday Honey so I took his advice and brought a 650ml home.

Holiday Honey pours a really clear reddish gold colour with lots of airy head on the initial pour and the head dies down pretty quickly. Sweet honey on the nose, first few sips are very malt forward with a mineral water taste. There is just the slightest bit of bitterness on the finish but nothing to really discern the hop character. A light bodied 5% ABV beer, a nice choice for summer, one that drinks well when it remains cold. Overall a nice beer, not outstanding but safe and easy.
