COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This full-flavored amber lager delivers a complex, toasted malt body and noble hop character. Honey and caramel undercurrents. Vanilla accents. Malty with light and hoppy notes. Finishes dry. Yard Sale pairs well with earthy mushroom bisque, grilled lamb or pork, and even mussels and clams.
STORY
"Yard Sale" is skier slang for when a skier falls down on a slope and loses his gear which ends up scattered down the mountain.

Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is a mild bready maltmwith some whiffs of caramel. Flavor is typical vienna lager with no bitterness and a bready malt. This is probably a bit thinner than the average lager though. A bit watery but it does have a decnt malt presence.

JPDIPSO (5151) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Dark amber to copper color. Modest, but stable ecru head. Grainy, malty, bready scents. Just a hint of herbal hops. Mostly malty flavors with toasted and caramel malt. Light sweetness lingers through to the end. Could use a touch more hopping, but nt a bad amber lager (something I’m usually not real keen on).

Looks nice in a glass with the thick head and amber color but that is all it does. Typical lager aroma or lack there of and a taste that is maybe better than some lagers but still just another lager and then we look at the thin body even for a lager and the lack of one more percent ABV to make it at least not a LIGHT lager.... Just sad for winter and on Christmas too.... :(

Can at the Gnarly Barley. Pours clear bright copper with a fizzy, bubbly off white head. Tastes like caramel and bready malt, corn, some citrus hops, and musky grains. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, caramel and bready malt, musky grains, and some citrus hops.

Thisis12ptfont (1051) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Aromas of graham crackers, lager yeast, caramel and brown sugar. Pours amber/copper with moderately heavy foam. Taste is brown sugar, lager yeast, subtle caramel, graham cracker malt, wet cardboard malt and some maple. Overall, bit of more body than a standard lager yet still lacking.

Atom (1969) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2015
12oz can pours a slightly hazy Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of caraml malt and bready dough yeast. Taste of dry doughy bread yeast, lightly sweet caramel malt, and light hop. Not bad for an Amber Lager.

BVery (8909) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Can at home. Clear reddish amber pour with a rocky head - good looking. Toast, caramel, some malt. Palate is a little thin. Pretty average Vienna.

Clear amber with quarter finger head. Light honey and caramel aroma. Bland and watery. Honey and wheat flavor. Boring.
