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.

Pours a tawny color, with an khaki colored head. Great retention and outstanding lacing. Not much in the aroma, just a faint amount of malt. Nice malt flavor however, caramunich 1 malts all over this I think. Light amount of baked apple notes, subtle hop character, mostly earthy and spicy. Overall, not superb, but solid. Hard to find good examples of classic bocks and I like this one.

My rating appears to be much higher than my peers. I found this to be a quite enjoyable bock. Very nice dark amber with a thin head. The aroma is sweet fruit with some bread and a hint of wood. The wood comes through in the taste along with some caramel and more bread. The finish is lingering.

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.

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

Malty caramel, slight molasses. Reddish brown color, medium head. Deep sweetness, caramel, raisins, and a nice bitter balance. Good carbonation, medium mouth feel, malty, but cleanish finish. Very solid beer, deep flavors and satisfying.

Pint at Barley’s Smokehouse. Clear reddish amber pour with a medium tan head. Malty aroma with caramel and bread; not much hop. Caramel malt flavor with crisp hop, a bit of fruit and a bready finish. Pretty decent bock.

seems I like this more than most; dirty amber pour with med head. I like this - good mix of malty sweetness, slight hop at end and perfect thickness for this style. niiiice

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light red color with a thin off white head. The nose dry darker malt with some bread and a decent earthy hoppiness. The flavor lightly fruity with a little bread, malt, and biscuit. Almost like a slight heavier Vienna. Medium body with easy carbonation and a pretty dry finish. Nice and very drinkable.
