COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Desire coupled with curiosity can drive you to do many foolish things. Fortunately, opening a bottle of our Pandora’s Bock is not one of them. Once it is released, a wealth of flavor and complexity will spill out into the world. With a traditional bock flavor profile and a hint of hoppy goodness, there’s a reason it’s spoken about in mythical terms.

Aroma, thin but malty. The color is awesome, a beautiful dark copper. No head to speak of, though. Flavor is fairly weak, but what's there is spot-on. If it were as full-bodied as a bock should be, this would be a wonderfully malty brew with just enough hops to make it interesting. As it is, it's probably not worth too much of your time, but I picked it up on sale and am happy with the purchase.

I really wanted to like a beer with this name. Aroma is malts and vanilla. Flavour is thin and wattered down.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2004
A little malt in the aroma. Fairly light and thin. Would be great for warm weather. Typical of Breckenridge, this beer is light and not complex, but still very drinkable. A little Band-Aid and caramel in the flavor.

Larbytown (4) - Golden, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2004 does not count
Not much frangrance. Nice colour but little head. Some sweetness, not a lot of body. Decent beer, especially since it was on sale. Nice label.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Pours a reddish brown with a medium tan head. Nose is cardboard and malt. It's very odd and hard to place but I am picking up some sort of toffee or caramel also. The tongue is very thin and almost tasteless. Some light malt, and sweetness seem to make up the bulk fo this one. There isn't much to it at all. This would be a good session beer were it not for the 7.2% abv, which is not discernable either. Decent but nothing to rave about.

Amber brown color with weak white head. No discernable aroma and an odd flavor.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2003
(draught) Slightly hazy (chill haze?) red-chestnut; very slim, yellowish head. Soapy nose; touch of vanilla & raspberry. Taste is perfumed: vanilla, lime peel (kafir lime), strawberry; served way too cold. Medium bodied. Very perfumed - but that's not what a Bock's about. Even a hint of phenolic-benzene.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2003
This just rubbed me the wrong way I guess. Cool name with a cool red colour to it. Watery feel to it, with dilute caramel flavor.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Nice red color with small haed. Nice orangey and melanoidin aroma. Toffee and melanoidin flavors. Light nearly empty finish! A little tart.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2003
Dark amber color with a small off white head. A sweet malt aroma accompanied by that Breckenridge hop aroma. A more hopped version of a bock than usual. Average.
