Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

This is my first review but I've had this beer multiple times.

A - Pours a clear bronzish red color. The head is a light tan and is about an inch thick. but, it quickly goes away and leaves nothing behind. No lacing of any sort.

S - Never really picked up anything unique. Has a faint malt smell to it.

T - Very subtle but deep caramel flavour. Has a nice roasted nuts taste that is permanent throughout each sip. Bitterness hits you at the end. Lingering after taste.

M - Medium body. Refreshing feel to it.

O - One of my go to beers. I enjoy the bitterness it leaves you with. A great beer for after a long day of school and studying.

Poured into a Pilsner glace.

A: Hazelnut/caramel brown colour. Pours a 1/4 inch head that is off white then drops to a thin layer.

S: Deep caramel/toffee flavours, hints of smokiness, hints of hops,

T: There is a nice sweetness that starts off, then a warming feeling comes in and finishes with a dry feeling. Caramel flavours present, hop bitterness is right on with a bit of hop flavour at the end.

M: Med body, great carbonation.

O: This is a great Bock. I look forward to this time of year every year to be able to have a few of these.

Another shout out to my BA bro joemcgrath27 for sending this my way. You know the selection of your local LCBO sucks when you have to get an Ontario beer shipped to you from Alberta...

A - Pours a nice dark ruby red colour, thin layer of head which quickly dissipates and leaves no real lacing.

S - Nice bready malt, bistuit notes, caramelized sugar and a hint of musty wheat.

T - The caramel malts come through nicely, hint of leafy hops alongside the bready biscuit notes and some sweet brown sugar lingers. Loads of flavour in a rather unsuspecting bottle.

M - Medium, smooth and wet. An easy drinker indeed.

O - A great example of the style, loads of flavour, easy drinking and at 6% a nice ale for a cloudy autumn day... Or in my case a rainy spring afternoon. I would toss back a 6-er of this no problem.

Can into tall glass.

A- Dark maple syrup brown pour with thin off white head that is short lived. Very little lacing.

S- Subtle brown sugar and maple syrup. Dark stone fruits, caramel and toffee. Slight floral presence from the hops.

T- Stone fruits, including figs, dates and a slight cherry presence. Caramel and brown sugar. There is a earthy aftertaste.

M- Light bodied, chewy with a good carbonation.

O- Creemore puts out a quality brew, this one is by far my favorite.

It pours a very deep, dark, and clear amber with about a cm of bubbly head on top.

The nose is very malty with notes of vanilla and some slightly fruity alcohol notes coming through in the background.

The taste is malty and surprisingly toasted with perhaps a tiny hint of coffee. It follows with some faint sweetness and light bitterness as the earthy notes develop.

Overall, this is a decent brew, though I don't know if I'd actively seek it out in the future.
