Creemore's urBock is a delightful pint. Weighing in at 6%, this dark brown/amber coloured brew is sold in 473mL cans. It is quite clear and features considerable carbonation. It is topped with a thick, but quickly dissipating, white head. It has a slightly sweet aroma of grains and toasted nuts. The flavour moves from sweet to bitter and comprises dank (but pleasant!) basement-y malts. The aftertaste is nicely balanced between hoppy bitterness and molasses sweetness.
If I had my way, this beer would have a touch more kick and be a bit more bitter. However, this is a nice bock that is well worth purchasing. Bock is a style I'd like to see more brewers playing with, and I love the idea of having a good one produced in Ontario.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
