3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old-penny-copper body under an off-white head. (Appearance rates a 5 due to the beautiful Mucha-inspired label.) Light caramel notes to a pale malt (DME) aroma, sweet tangerines and a hint of lemon underneath. Body is style-appropriate yet mildly cloying. Flavor is caramel malt with a candied citrus finish. Totally sessionable albeit a tad on the sweet side. ~~~~~~~ Purchased a few weeks ago in a mix-a-six from Woodman’s in Carpentersville, IL.

some juicy and fruity character like stewed plum and wheat juice. mellow with a caramel kind of vanilla sense near the end. some soul and a bit of machine oil. perhaps a touch of white pepper. did not think the alcohol was this high since there is no burn.

This was good, wasn't sure at first, actually got better when it wasn't as cold. Not a regular Bock drinker, but will try this again!

Muddy amber pour. Fruity, floral taste. Lighter than expected. Not good. Ugh.

Pours deep amber with a thin, fizzy head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, taste is a bit darker with a tart finish.

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

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.

This poured a darker amber color with an off white head. Aroma was of herbal hops, light nuts and caramel. Flavor was sweet, mild dark fruits and toasted bread and caramel. Meh.

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.
