Big Rock's further contribution to the continuing Canadian fixation with honey lagers, available as a house beer at Original Joe's locations.

This beer appears a clear shady copper hue, with one finger of soapy off-white head, which leaves little in the way of lace on the way down. It smells of mild caramel malt, and a hint of plain honey. The taste is bready caramel malt, faint musty honey, and leafy, earthy hops. The carbonation is about average, the body medium in weight, with a zippiness that precludes any pretense of a (half) expected cloying nature - kudos for that. It finishes with a sweet herbal earthiness.

While nothing to shout from the rooftops or street-side patios for, this is a decent enough, average (in a respectable way) honey lager. And it killed the lingering thought in my head that OJ's house beers were just rebranded Big Rock staples - this sure is a different cat than Big Rock's Honey Brown.
