BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Creemore Springs Brewery Limited
Ontario, Canada

Style: Bock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Fall

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.

*From notes taken on Feb 8, 2016.

Look: About a finger and a half of head. Ruby brownish colour. Little bit of lacing on the glass.

Smell: Not too much going on. Slightly malty, cherries, light notes of chocolate.

Taste: You instantly get a nice hint of cherries and other dark fruits, but it has no staying power, except for very subtle bitterness. Very short finish, which detracts from the overall taste. Slightly disappointed, considering I'm a fan of the brewery.

Feel: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Smooth.

Overall: Average-slightly below average offering from an otherwise solid brewery.

This beer strarts with a clear ruby-brown color with medium creamy looking head retention that fades into a ring and patches. When it gets close to your nose, it as a nice roasty malt and slightly fruity smell. The alcool is subtle but present. Have a sip and you will feel a very refreshing and smooth carbonation. The first sweet roasted dark/caramel malt and nut taste will leave a slight bitterness.

Overall, this beer comes with a sweet roasty caramel smell and taste that is very welcome with the tickness of the carbonation. Very balance and sublte for the style, but definetly enjoyable as a group rather then a single beer.

Cheers

Umm - OK. I think the best beers in this style have a depth that this particular offering lacks. It looks fine, but the head disappears in a hurry. The smell is very thin - faint hints of caramel. Taste-wise, the flavor is rich enough but lacking complexity. I would not rush out to find this, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to try 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.
