Notes/Commercial Description:
Tampa is a long way from our home base in Chico, but the guys down yonder in Florida sure can brew a great beer. Our friends at Cigar City find inspiration in the Cuban roots of their hometown, and that Latin-inspired flair is evident in Yonder Bock. This tropical take on the Maibock adds a Latin island flair to this traditional German style beer.

Enamored with the Latin roots of their Tampa home, Cigar City always tries to channel a bit of local history into their beers, e.g. the Humidor Series whose beers age on Spanish cedar as an homage to Tampa’s cigar making roots. Only five years old, this brewery deserves the fast praise that’s come its way.

12oz can, Pours a deep copper amber with a off white medium lasting fluffy head. Aroma is grains, caramel malt, fruity notes. Taste is sweet fruity notes, I guess tropical, grains, caramel malt and mild earthy herbal hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish is grains, malt some tropical fruity notes with mild bitterness on the end. Overall an interesting and good drinking brew.

First Cigar City brew.
Clear amber with two fingers of off white head. Rings of lace.
Smell is malty with a fair amount of tropical fruits.
Taste is fruity lots of malt and just enough hops to make the style.
Medium body with just right carbonation.
Finishes lightly dry and sweet.
Overall a very pleasant beer. Too bad it is a one off beer.
Great collaboration guys!

12 oz can, dated 05/04/14 on the bottom of the can

Looks nice, bright copper color, clear, nice creamy white head. Good head retention. As expected by the description, big fruity hop aroma. Taste is well balanced: biscuity malt flavor and hoppy finish. Medium body and carbonation.

A: dehydrated pee color, bronze, thin white head

S: Strong malt flavor, tropical fruit, caramel, guava, passion fruit

T: Taste follows the nose exactly. I tend to not like malty beers and was cautious about the mix of tropical fruits and caramel malts but this is delicious

M: light smooth carbonation, slight toasted malt aftertaste

O: Cigar City cannot fail. I've loved every beer I've tried with their name on it. Light, fruity flavors are pleasant in the Florida sun. One of the craft breweries that are absolutely nailing it right now

Picked up in early July from BevMo for $22.99. Packaged on 5/4/14.

Beer poured a deep orange with a nice off white head that dissipated pretty quickly.

Nose is tropical hops and bready malts.

Taste is mango and peach oriented with a nice bready malt backbone.

Mouthfeel is think,full and pretty smooth.

Overall a pretty tasty brew. Not really catching much of the bock style other that it is pretty smooth. Tasty brew, would recommend to those that enjoy hoppier brews.
