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.

Bottle best before 03/13/13. Nose is lightly grainy, definite German lager yeast, a little sweetness with the pretzel dough and probably some Munich. Pours a beautiful dark amber-brown body and a short tan head. Very crisp full body, dense (and essentially impenetrable, simple) malt, mostly dry with a spritz of citrus on the back, hops are minimal but not absent, and there’s stability despite the light edge forward in malt. Water seems extra hard.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Good looking beer, pours red with thick lasting head. Aroma is caramelly. Hempy flavour in with the malt. Some pickle note in the finish. Also a bit of pepper.

ben4321 (4094) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/23/12, Bottled 11/16/12

Aroma: The nose has caramel malts, some doughy notes, earth, and a little paper
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish-orange color with a foamy beige head leaving medium-heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, with a medium sweetness, and a light earthy hop bitterness
Palate: It is light-medium, has a nice, clean feel, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Weirdly, I’m on my 3rd straight Reddish beer of the day (not intentional, even though it’s Christmas Weekend, it must just be a case of them all being Winter seasonals). Anyway, this is a decent beer, but nothing stands out for me.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malts, nutty notes. The taste is caramel malts, nuts and a mildly fruity finish. Fairly dry, medium bodied, quite drinkable. Solid beer.

I am not generally a lager fan. However, I am fully enjoying this winter special from Uinta. They never disappoint. Rich flavor.

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very clear but dark amber color with a small head. Nose is a little toasty, actually. Slight toasty flavor, too, with some great malty tones in there. Good lager...

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Roasted malt and stewed vegetation for a nose. Dark copper color. Earthy, starchy malt taste. Stalked veggies and some tin. Easy drinker all around. Reminds me of cheaper dark lagers. I too have fallen on the ski slopes of Utah, and drinking beers at elevation likely contributed.

gripweed57 (770) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Bright copper color topped by a small bubbly off-white head. Grainy, earthy toasted malt aroma. Mild toasted malt flavor with a very light biscuit, caramel backbone. Dryish grassy hops are indistinct. Finish is dry and uninspiring. Lacks complexity or depth. I was hoping for more.

What can I say? It’s a bit toasty lager! Its nose is full of caramelly and malty sweetness. It has a beautiful color: golden-amber with barely off-white head. Mthere is no hop aroma and not much bitterness, though it does have a slightly vegetal kick(...my first thought was ’asparagus’). But it is what it is, a lager.

Bottled 3/8/12. Nice red color, good head. Smells malty, grains, lager-like I guess. The taste had a very interesting cereal flavor without being too grainy. I actually liked it. Overall it was nothing too crazy but I wouldn’t turn down a bottle if someone offered me another. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-04-2012 02:03:14
