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.

TBone (11893) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Draught@RNH. Clear amber color, small off-white head. Barley, fruit sugary aroma. Light bodied. Really watery for this ABV. Light sweetish flavor, honey, green apple, short harsh finish. Quite far from the normal bock.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, wort), lightly hoppy (apricot, flowers). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Very little of interest in the nose, and needs more to balance the syrupy sweet malt. Simple and kind of crude/raw.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2008
A subpar dunkler bock. Aroma was so so. Fruit, caramel malt and iced tea. Pour was a nice dark gold with a 2 finger off white head. Taste was disappointing. Strong sugar and caramel that feels like it’s leaving behind a film in your mouth. Not much carbonation and a sweet syrupy aftertaste. Blah.

unclemattie (4032) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2008
12oz bottle. Reddish-brown color, off-white head. Aroma of rich malt, fresh brownies, slight citrus leans toward the posibility of a pleasantly hoppy brew. strange sweet candy flavors, date sugar, some citrus. I’m sure this would be much better on tap. so far, not my favorite Bock. Thin body, although the flavor is a bit more full.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Awesome name, cool label, mediocre/lousy Bock. I found this very similar to Genesee Bock in most regards, but I would expect more from a "craft" brewery. Very faint malt nose, bread and sugary sweetness. Cola colored body, thin wispy head and solid lacing. Medium bodied, fizzy and easy going. No aftertaste to speak of and it finishes with an odd emptiness. Bland taste that contains a hint of sweet malt familiar with a standard bock profile. The flavor is underdeveloped and empty. Bad bock

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
Sampled on 4/21/2009. This dunkel bock pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized beige foamy head, with decent retention. The aroma is caramel, bready and sweet. A light to medium bodied dunkel bock. The malts are bready and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. A touch thin and a little under-carbonated. A little bland. This beer needs to be way maltier. Hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. The finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Pours an amber color with an off white head. Caramel malt aroma with some breadiness. Similar flavor. Not enough hops here. Bland

Nikiel (870) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Pours a light gold. Smells lightly sweet, and slightly aged. Tastes like a sweeter, watered down version of a standard American bock.
