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.

Poured from can into glass stein a red orange deep amber. Plenty of fading head and lace a slight off white color. Med body and co2. Aroma is caramel and toffee, taste is malty, with hay and grass notes. I got little of the tropical fruit mostly in the late finish. It sips sweet and finishes a bit bitter. Very nice I would get this again if it was a regular offering.

Ok, I’m a little shocked, but I didn’t really dig this. Maybe the can was too old, or maybe I wasn’t really expecting the right thing from a bock, but it ended up being a mish mash of malty sweet with pungent hops. And, the hops...they were wonderful, but I didn’t like it with the sweet, sweet malt. I admire the exploration of style, though.

Can at home. Great for the style. Near perfect pour- rich, deep ever-so-slightly-hazy orange with a generous white head. Malt definitely dominates and overall impression is sweet but still enjoyable. Raisins, caramel, bread and tropical notes. Not the best of the case, but decent.

Can. Amber, light nitty, llight haze. Malty, slight nutty, slight herbal nose. Med bodied, quite smooth nice. Caramels, some nuttyness. Not a favourite style of mine, but ok.

[Tap] Brass colored pour with only wisps of foam left on top. Sweet and sticky aromas of caramel, residual sugars and hints of alcohol. Flavors of toffee, sweet breads, candied tropical fruits and some lemon. A nice coating mouthfeel. Low levels of carbonation. I enjoyed it. Tasting notes from 7/2014.

355 ml bottle. Canned 04.05.2014.
Pours clear copper color with a large head. Quite stuffy on the nose, thick malty and caramel up front, some resinous hops and nutty notes on the background. Very sweet toffee-syrupy flavor, caramel and malts, mild resin and some molasses. Can’t really locate the Bock elements here.
