3.25/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a mug.

A: Nice clear, garnet-amber color with a bubbly off-white head.

S: Intense sweetness on the nose, with hints of toasted barley, caramel, toffee and even some nutty aromas. Not overwhelming by any means, but very pleasant.

T: Again, sweet, but not quite as rich as the nose suggested. All the aforementioned aromas appear in the flavor, yet they seem to blend into one singular flavor which was a tad strange at first, but ultimately grew on me.

M: Heavier side of light bodied, yet teetering on being too thin. Carbonation is average, never getting in the way of the flavor, but the finish is pretty muddy.

D: Light enough to be drinkable, but the finish made this one sort of a chore to finish, especially as it warmed.

Slightly disappointed with Pandora here. This is a beer that for some reason (name, label art, the fact that it was a bock, who knows?) I really, almost desperately wanted to love. The look and aromas were nice, but everything else was strictly average. Perhaps I need to taste this side-by-side with others of its kind, as I'm becoming increasingly convinced that the bock is an under-appreciated and largely misunderstood style. I like it more than most bocks, but I'd still have a hard time recommending it for any reason other than sheer curiosity.
