Game Day Beer Review: Sierra Nevada / Cigar City Yonder Bock Tropical Maibock

The Location: Residential neighborhood, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Date: Thursday, July 17th

The Time: 8:15pm, Eastern Daylight Time

The Weather: 81 degrees, soft breeze blowing
The Scene: Backyard beer drinking

The Music: Mandolin Rain, Josh Kelley

The Beer: Sierra Nevada / Cigar City Yonder Tropical Maibock, Sierra Nevada / Cigar City Collaboration (7.70% ABV)

The Review: Yonder Bock poured a deep copper penny color with the whitest of white, fluffy heads; considerable lacing developed on the glass surface as the head receded.   The smell was mild and bready, with the faintest hint of tropical fruit scents.  The beer's taste was malt-forward, succeeded by tropical fruit favors including pineapple and guava, and followed by the drying effect of  a well-hopped beer.  Yonder bock has a medium mouthfeel, and is well carbonated and tingly on the tongue.

The Feel: Summer evenings are tailor made for relaxing, and this beer more than fits the bill.
