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.

Copper body with a small white head. Sweet boozy aroma. Mango comes through with too much alcohol heat. Maibocks are already sweet, and this is too much, even cloying. I didn't particularly enjoy this one.

11/5...BCAA 4/12...pours brownish copper color with fizzy white foam that leaves a layer. Tropical fruit nose, small scent. Taste is a fruity malt blend, with tones of vanilla, cola, root beer, and a prickly cactus like bitter. Full malt. Great.
