Beer – #701 – Funk Estate – Yes Yes Y’all

The BeerJerkNZ beer of the week –  Funk Estate Yes Yes Y’all, a session ale of lower ABV, nothing wrong with that if there is  flavour and body.

our tribute to early hip hop culture

This is the more portable 330ml can of a beer that is 3.5% ABV, and 30 IBU things, making this .828 of a standard drink unit and about 105 calories a serve.

Brewed by Funk Estate in the style that is of American Pale Ale and they are in Wellington, New Zealand

Yes Yes Y’all…..and don’t stop. This 3.5% session Pale Ale is our tribute to early hip hop culture, when MC‘s would freestyle for hours on end, and to fill in gaps in their mad rhymes, would slip in golden phrases such as this beers namesake.

That’s what Yes Yes Y’all will do; allow you to plug those gaps in your day with something that punches well above its weight, and then continue on like it ain’t no thang.

So, what could possibly go wrong?

That’s a reasonably hoppy burst of aroma on opening, goodly good.

Great aroma in the glass, with is a pie yellow pour without much of head that just left and went away. Aroma wants to be kind of fruity bit it is almost a bit musty too.

Funk Estate - Yes Yes Y'allTaste is outstanding for a low ABV beer, lots of bitterness and quite a delightful amount of sweetness and softness in there, Much more impressive than you could imagine.

I’ve had precious few ‘session beers’ and not one that I can remember being just as instantly outstanding and as engaging as this one is.

Even some dryness at the finish which sits at the back of the tongue.  Plus I like the fruit like taste that this carries, it is clearly quite an accomplished bit of work, and the aroma hangs on in there and you get a goodly sniff each time you sup on the rapidly receding quantity of beer.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 9 of its things from the thing. I’ve no reservations with as a beer, it covers all the bases, of tastes, drinkability, finish and enjoyment. I’d liked to have more head on the beer of course. So it’s a bit tart or bitter, has a brilliant aroma, and a lovely flavour taste profile that make this a crisp and nice to drink beer y’all.

The double dip review

  • Am I enjoying it? Yes, I was rather taken aback by how nice it is.
  • Would I have another? I really would, this is nice beer, and I’d be happy to buy this again.
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? Absolutely this is really tasty, crisp and easy drinking with flavour and aroma and comes in a can for easy access.

Music for this : Well I don’t have the Hip Hop on the music player, but I do have ” Drive By Truckers” and ” English Oceans ” on Spotify Which I cribbed from someone on Twitter, as you know it’s important to listen to the everything.

Drive-By Truckers are an alternative country/Southern rock band based in Athens, Georgia,


American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and aroma.This is a perfect beer for big fare like grilled burgers or combination pizzas, as well as lighter fare like sushi and green salads.
