2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

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.

Can. Pours a clear copper orange with a large beige head. Gentle malt and a touch of yeast with some bread and fruit. Medium bodied, malty and sweet, a touch of jammy oxidization flavors. Tangy citrus and chewy floral malt into the finish. A bit of warm alcohol.

pineypower (2528) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours out a deep amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of bready/caramel malts, light fruity hops, mild citrusy hop bitterness and some bread crusts. Taste is lots of caramel malts, bread dough, light fruity hops, a touch of bitter citrus fruit, lingering sweetness. Solid beer for a style that usually for me doesn’t get much better than meh.

Can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark rusty orange with a solid 2+ fingers of thick! white head. Aroma is loads of tropical fruits-mango, pineapple and citrus with a decent caramel backbone. Taste is medium bitter, follows aroma. Full bodied with a creamy and slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Very good.
