Breckenridge Brewery - Pandora's Bock; Summer Bright Ale

The Breckenridge Brewery is in Denver, Colorado.

Pandora's Bock - This beer pours a dark copper/amber in color.  The aroma is malty, with clean, long grass and some fruitiness.  The taste is roasted, nutty, a bit of burnt caramel, with just a bit of rye-like spiciness.  There is a crisp, clean lager finish, with some slight bitterness.  This is a tasty and drinkable beer.

Summer Bright Ale - This 4.5% ABV beer is brewed with orange and lemon peels.  It pours light golden and pale straw in color with a slight white head that dissipates quite rapidly.  The aroma is fresh and clean, dry grain, a touch of lager funk and a bit of citrus zest.  The taste follows the aroma with a nice citrus zest in the aftertaste.  This is a crisp and refreshing summer lager.  I like that the addition of the lemon and orange peels adds a subtle rather than overwhelming flavor.  A truly great take on a summer beer.
