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.

Where and how: GG , can 355ml.
Aroma grainy, malty with slight alcohol dryness to it. Mild touch of soft toffee.
Appearance :
Top: lighter yet long lasting. Rings on glass.
Base: chill haze?, amber.
Palate : full bodied, well rounded, soft , oily finish.
Taste: solid malt body. Nice softer texture, nice bock roundness to it. Gentle yet noticeable tropical feel to it.
Other notes size moving into traditional double bock territory but you won’t feel it. Great solid traditional feel with gentle modern twist to it.

Unique flavor. Very smooth low hops velvety mouth feel with fruity taste. I would say in a category of its own.

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a deep golden-orange with a large long-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, nuts and a good amount of hops. Flavour of bready caramel malt, toffee, hops, nuts and a moderate bitter finish. Alcohol is totally hidden. Medium bodied. Quite good for the style.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a orangish amber with a off white head. Taste caramel, malt, hoppy, earthy. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Overall a pretty tasty brew. Not really catching much of the bock style other that it is pretty smooth.

On tap at Global brew. Pours a clear orange/amber with an off white head. Cotton candy aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, cloying candy and hop bitterness. Almost like a "quality" malt liquor. If such a thing exists.

Meh. A typical bock. Take this rating for what it’s worth because I’m not a fan of the style. Aroma was heavy malt with some mango and melon. Pour was a deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was way too sweet. Toasted bread, sweet malt and melon notes. Sticky wet finish with mild carbonation.
