Notes: 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.

12 oz can poured into a craft tumbler

A- Chestnut with some ruby hues. Tan two finger head has good retention.

S- Sweet malt tones. Caramel and molasses. Tropical notes as well. Pineapple and mango.

T- A little different from the nose. Subdued tropical notes up front. Sweet malt comes at the end, a little bit of fruit juice.

M- Medium full body. Carbonation gives a little bite. Finishes a little dry, almost spicy.

O- Another good hybrid style. Malt bill is bock, but the hop profile is definitely an IPA. A juicy tropical one. This blends well.

Canned 6/4/14; drank 7/16/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the can into a glass.

See-through grapefruit hue.

HUGE cream head (careful pouring); frothy lace.

Tropical fruit & mild caramel sweetness. I'm intrigued!

Medium thick mouthfeel.

A nice tropical fruit/caramel hybrid flavor is marred by pickle juice undertones. Close but no cigar (pun intended).

On tap at Bx Beer Depot. Served in a taster.

Appearance - Deep orange. Small white head. Settles to nothing.

Smell - Really doesn't smell like much. Some caramel malt with a light floral character.

Taste - Still not exciting. Caramel and some grapefruit. A touch of stone fruit. Almost no bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, but tastes sweet because there's almost no hop balance.

Overall - Blah.

12 oz can. packaged on 050414.

A: pours very clear, but a little on the deeper side of blond/orange for a maibock.

S: smells very sweet and tropical. almost like fruit punch.

D: drinks very sweet to start. body is rich and full of good malt flavor. good citrus punch. bitterness is low to moderate. a little boozy, but not out of the ordinary for the style.

M: moderate to low carb on a full body.

D: a very unique bock beer. good hop flavor. lots of tropical notes with a big bock body. im happy to say this is the first time I have had a beer like this.

A - Beautiful golden amber.

S - Fruity, floral notes.

T - Malty, with a hop/fruit middle. Alcohol/bitter finish.

M - Medium bodied, smooth. Dry aftertaste.

I really enjoyed this. I'm a big fan of Helles Bocks, and this is a very interesting take on the style. Wish there were than one of these in the 12-pack.
