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.

473 ml can picked up from LCBO poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Nice dark ruby / garnet color sits below 2.5 fingers of creamy white head that sticks around for a bit. Nice lacing on the glass as well.

Smell - Not tons here, mostly bready and biscuity malts. Maybe a few mixed nuts thrown in as well. Some vague sweetness in the nose as well.

Taste - Like it smells, except that the sweetness in those doesn't translate in the taste, and the taste is slightly bitter afterwards.

Mouthfeel - Fairly rich and smooth, medium carbonation. There is a thirst quenching nature about this beer, but at no point does it feel overly watery.

Overall - A tasty bock, I'm glad I tried, however it was a slight letdown after viewing the beer before trying it. Still another good entry from one of Ontario's best and most prolific craft brewers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Mostly translucent dark mahogany with a pillowy light tan head (basically off-white). Looks real nice.

Aroma: Nutty toffee and that slight tinge of lager yeast. Not super aromatic but a sweet aroma overall.

Taste: Not quite what I was expecting at first sip but still a good flavor. It's not as sweet as the aroma suggests which works in its favor here. Starts with light earthy/grassy hop presence that mixes well with a pilsen/amber malt flavor. Midway through you get that blast of lager yeast which balances out the sweetness from the malt. The finish is bright and smooth. Aftertaste of echoing lager yeast with a lingering bitterness (very low probably 20-30 IBUs). At 6% ABV it never tastes watery but still doesn't excel very far in the flavor department.

Mouthfeel: A tad below medium in body with somewhat aggressive carbonation. Good drinkability.

Final Thoughts: I've only had one other offering from Creemore Springs (their Kellerbier) which I enjoyed as well. They brew proof that lagers aren't just for BMC drinkers. Would I drink it again? Sure, but I'd be more interested in trying their other offerings.

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.
