Great smell. Reddish orange.. White head. Great beginning taste.. Long partially bitter after taste. Sort of grows on you as you keep drinking.

12oz bottle-thanks to JPDISPO for this suprise (I wasnt expecting much). Pours a deep copper/amber hue with 1/2 inch tan head. Very nice sweet, malty, sugary aroma with a noble hop bite. flavros are sugary, notes of grape, cherries, noble hops, caramel malts. I think this was a good example of a bock. my only problem with this one was the start of the flavors. It had a metalic start, but other than that, it was damn good.

This was one of the first beers that I had when I turned 21, but that was 6 years ago and I’m trying it again for the first time.
Clear, Copper color. There is a soft foamy head that dissapates rather quickly (not that I really care about head retention).
In the aroma, malt and yeast dominate, smells nutty.
There is a toasty malt flavor that yields to a very dry aftertaste too quickly. I might like a maltier flavor, but the dry aftertaste makes it a Bock I guess. This Beer tastes fresh.
I don’t usually write a lot for mouthfeel, but the dry (yet not astringent), alcoholic mouthfeel is dominant in this beer.
Overall, I really like Pandora’s Bock, I would just like a little more body. I think it’s worth buying and enjoying. It’s a rather cerebral beer, if that makes any sense.

12 oz bottle. This is not my favorite Bock, but i have to say it was a good beer. There is a rich maltiness, with sweet brown sugar hints. The color was much lighter than I was expecting, but the flavors were all there. Overall I would say hats off to Breck. MrBunn (2847) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a one finger tan head. Aromas are grainy with a little bit of leather and fruit. Flavor is sweet and dark malt with a bit of a plum like fruitiness that is pretty good. I’m not picking up much tartness. Finish is brown sugar sweetness.

After sampling 4 extremely average beers back to back, this is a pleasant change. The contrast is probably affecting my rating, but here goes: Pours red with a medium head. Aroma is sweet, molasses, toast, and faint apple skins. Flavor is nice, typical bock toasted flavor, caramel, spots of nuttiness, yeast rolls, slight burlap, hop pepper, and mild tobacco in the finish. Underrated, I think.

Tap at Breckenridge BBQ. Pours a translucent amber with golden notes and a medium creamy bubbly off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee, nuts and caramel. Flavor of the same. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Brown with a decent head. Mostly a malt aroma with a smooth malt taste. Definitely a bock with only a bit of hops there. Not one of my favorite styles, but this one is smooth. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Poured a disconcerting brown with a wispy white head. Alcohol well hidden and really not bad at all if just a but pedestrian. TheGB (578) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Light aroma of malt. Taste is malty, but also has nice caramel and bready tastes. Well balanced for a bock and has a nice palate.
