3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Breckenridge Pandora’s Bock has a medium, cream-colored head and a semi-clear, copper appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles (etched glass) and some splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread, and the flavor is of that, plus some bread crust, a dash of bitterness, and a fruity undertaste. This beer, at 7.5% alcohol, takes on a double bock aspect as one drinks it down. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Breckenridge Pandora’s Bock finishes mostly dry, sweet, malty, and drinkable. One just does not pick up the alcohol with this. Overall, it’s really nice, and I rate it as being very fine. RJT

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flat pour, mahogany rather simple bock, bready malt with light bitterness. If Pandora’s Bock was a Malt Liquor like it says on the side of the label I may have enjoyed it more.

This was one, if not the best bock I’ve had. Even my non beer drinking fiance liked it. I plan on making this a regular.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Smoke & Barrel. Pours a clear amber. Good off white head. Odd sticky red nose, odd twig and berries combo like juniper and spruce. Taste is simply not good. So dry and bland with huge dustiness. Extreme medicinal bitterness and tree bark.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild aroma of sweet malt...red, brown, in color with tan head. Caramel is over powering....slightly masking sweet malt...but flavor covers palate nicely. Finsihes with a mild bitter bite. A decebt beer but was esxpecting a bit more complexity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy nutty and caramel aromas for the malt. light to moderate orange juice for the hops, dough for the yeast, with toffee and light brown sugar in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear medium brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation. Nice and bold up front, smooth in the finish, not sure why such a low average as a Dunkler Bock.
