2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(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.

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.

Nice red color with small haed. Nice orangey and melanoidin aroma. Toffee and melanoidin flavors. Light nearly empty finish! A little tart.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice drinkable bock that was not over assertive and lended very nicely to the malt side of things. Not my favorite as far as bocks go, but nonetheless it goes really nice along with barbequed chicken....
