Pours a clear gold with zero head retention and lacing. Brewed all of 3 hours away. Smell: toasted malts and skunk. Hmm, clear bottles? Great idea. Taste: pale malt and corny adjuncts with a hint of hops and vegetative character. Even without the slight skunk this is a pretty awful lager.

Picked this up at a supermarket in Key Largo. The label is an eyecatcher, with vertical stripes of red, yellow, and green and talk all over about "distinguishing oneself". Okay, I'm curious.

Pours a straw color with a temporary white head. Nose is malty and heavy on the adjuncts in a word- "macrotown". A good sized swig reveal a mediocre malt base with weak hops and a hint of citrus. A nauseating sweetener of some sort is also along for the ride. This is definitely nothing special, despite the label's promises. Heavily carbonated mouthfeel and pretty watery but reasonably smooth. Sorry, this isn't even enjoyable by Florida beer standards.

Yes i Beer pours a typical macro yellow from a clear twelve ounce bottle. The aroma is grainy, maybe a little bit of hops. This beer tastes like a somewhat better version of Corona. Decent for what it is. Okay on a hot Florida day. Contract brewed by the Florida Beer Company.

“Yes i” beer is, as far as I can tell, some sort of charitable project by Florida Beer/Indian River brewing. On the bottle, it states “brewed and bottled for Yes i llc by Indian River Beverages. The website listed on the bottle (www.yesibeer.com) is incomplete and offers no information on the beer or the brewery.

The bottle itself looks like a low-budget Central-American brew, clear glass with a twist-off cap (man I really love twist-offs), and a very simple, multi-color striped label. On the side of the bottle is printed this beer’s credo, I suppose: “Red for Power and faith. Yellow for peace and natural wealth. Green for land and hope. The lion for the authority of the concept. The name Yes I to emerge to distinguish oneself simply a way of life pure and original. Respect.”

OK, now that we got that out of the way, on to the beer itself. Into a pilsner, it’s a clear golden yellow with a few large bubbles fueling a puffy head of about two fingers. Head fades at a moderate rate leaving a thin cap, substantial ring, and halfway decent lace all the way down the glass. So far looks like a fairly decent macro lager. Nose is grassy with light citrus hops with a bit of sweet malt peeking through. Taste is middle-malty, more so than I really expected, with low hops profile. There’s really none of the citrus I detected on the nose. Slightly bready. Clean finish with no lingering aftertones or even bitterness. Mouth is surprisingly full, yet not overly so, more in the style of a good pils or lager, just chewy enough to feel substantial without distracting from thirst-quenching-ness. Additional carbonation would probably add some crispness which is lacking. Drinkability is OK. This beer does not offend, but has a very simplistic flavor profile.

Overall: I’m not certain what this beer is trying to be, but it comes across as a very average macro-lager. I’m sure glad that it appears to be benefiting some charitable cause, because at 8.79 for a sixer, there is no way in hell I am going to buy this very mediocre brew again.
