Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: brewdlyhooked13 on 12-10-2001

Bock beers gained notoriety in Munich back in 1612. All the Bavarian nobles were drinking fashionable northern ales known as Einbeck Bier. So Duke Maximillian I of Munich hired his own northern brewmaster, who created a lager similar in character but superior in taste. It won back the local aristocrats. Inspired by his entrepreneurial spirit we started brewing our own urBock – rich, ruby-hued beer with subtle, dark roasted flavours. It’s an aristocratic beer but rest assured, you needn’t be a Duke to enjoy it.

Poured from a can. Little head, and, what there was disappeared quickly. Other than that, no complaints.
A good entry in the bock category.

Nice crisp urbock baby!
No utterance of can tinge, (pored from a can)...

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.85 473ml can. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass

A- Pretty good. Pours with a nice 1" head that tapers to a film within a minute. Very dark

S- A bit lacking. Definitely caramel scents

T- Ok. A bit bitter from the roasted malt. Ok hops.

M- Light yet heavy LOL. Weird but good. Not creamy but not dry.

O- Pretty good. Not special but pretty good. Will buy if I see it on tap

Food Pairing

This interesting little beer pairs well with... Pumpkin pie! The cinnamon really comes out with this beer.

Poured from a 473 mL can into a pint glass.

I don't know if this particular can had undergone some unsettling beforehand (it was in my fridge for a couple days at least), but when I poured it out, it had an insane amount of head, and I couldn't even finish pouring the entire contents of the can before some of it spilled out. Needless to say, more than 4 fingers of head at first, and it took a minute or two to settle to a 2-finger head. Body was a dim, amber brown.

Smell was quite inviting. Sweet, but still tangy and grainy. Fruity, perhaps like prunes or raisins. A bit of a soapy scent in there (unfortunately).

Taste was great, right from the first sips. Just the right balance (according to my tastes) between bitter and sweet. No metallic taste, either up front or in the aftertaste. Midway between light and rich.

Moderate to strong carbonation.

Overall, a nice beer that I wouldn't mind having again.

Poured a medium dark ruby brown, a solid dense tan head, shows good retention, good clarity and lacing. 4
S- kilned roasty malts, some apple/caramel, nuttiness, earthy bitterness. Lemon, piney aromas. 3.75
T- toasty caramel, pear, candy apple, brown sugar through the finish, malt with some lemony yeast, full bodied malt, earthy (lightly peppery) bitterness. Mostly bready caramel malts, good balance, standard. Then some chocolate emerges as it warms, along with some light woody/tobacco 3.5
M- moderate bodied, light carbonation, a bit sweet and malty, clean bready malt finish then dry.
A good balanced malty bock beer, bit on the sweet side and not a lot of complexity, but works as a fairly tasty session beer, would have again, but not something I found all that interesting. Warms nicely.
