This robust Amber style ale is marked by its bold malt flavor and smooth drinkability. Brewed with chocolate caramel and toasted malts the dark amber color brings rich flavor and sweet caramel like aroma. Medium bodied and a perfect complement to any meal Yard Sale Ale is sure to impress even the fizzy yellow beer drinkers.

On tap. Pours a clear brown-copper with a medium, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Sweet aroma of toasted malt, caramel and a hint of chocolate. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate and a hint of nuts with a mildly bitter finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not bad for an amber ale, more closely resembles a brown ale though.

Not much in the aroma, easily one of the darkest amber ales I?ve seen. Almost more brown than red. The body also seems to have a little bit of the nut flavors common with browns. But it is lighter and has some hops in the finish. I?m liking it. After finishing, I found it too sweet and lowered my score.

Poured an amber color, clear, and not much head. Aroma was very weak and all I got was some hints of sweetness. Taste was lightly caramel and fizzy with hints of sulfur. Not very good.

Pours a clear brown with a thin off white head that almost totally disappears. Aroma is rich maltiness, caramel, chocolate, grainy, nutty and faint hop presence maybe citrus. Flavour is caramel, nutty, chocolate, mild bitterness, citrus and over all a rich malty beer.

Quite dark for an amber, with the malty caramel chocolate notes that sometimes implies. Maybe a tad too sweet but still pretty tasty.

Tap at Beer Rev. Brown with a small white cap. Nose has caramel and chocolate malts. Taste has caramel and chocolate. Finish has caramel and cocoa. Good beer, a bit like a brown ale.

Rating #2. Had in 16oz can. Wasn't expecting much. Poured to a light amber color with not much aroma but extremely enjoyed the smooth taste without any bitterness. One of my favorite amber ales to date. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep copper with a red hue a d a frothy light brown head. Aroma of rich caramel, light chocolate, nutty and grainy with very little floral/citrus hops. Taste is rich caramel, chocolate, nuts, toast and a medium light bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied but well balanced...Would like to see more hop aroma/flavor on this but otherwise its a nice brown/Irish red.
