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.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours and orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is very malty with some corn. The flavor is malty with some sweetness, but the corn is still there. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a white head and a hazy amber body. Aroma of corn, hay, carmel and grass. Taste is slightly sour, corn and metallic. Fizzy.

Lightly toasted aroma. Taste is pretty thin. Mostly just malts and earthy flavors. Malts don’t taste too great, a little too sweet. Not bad, but I will probably get something else next time.

the beer is light cola sweet and somewhat earthy with a carbonation profile of half exhausted sodapop low alcohol volume is to be anticipated after tasting the brew it is a bit demonstrative but more so unremarkable sorry just not something someone with an interest or looking to develop an interest in beer would find memorable. slightly nutty... eehhh

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of bittering hops, soft berries, lager yeast, toasted malt. Flavor has an herbal woody feel with the toasted malt and lager yeastiness cutting through. Medium-bodied, a bit on the weak side, though does have a semi-rich, earthy finish. Not bad stuff, but certainly better to be had.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts. Very toasted! Flavor is also quite toasted--lots of bread and cracker malts. Slight hints of sweet malt as well. Light bodied, perhaps a little too light/weak. Decent but nothing I’d seek out again.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Tap at the Tram Club, Snowbird, UT. Clear amber pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma and flavor are all malt, with just a touch of roasty nuts. Thin bodied. Highly drinkable, but not much going on.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Draft at the tiger. Pours an amber body with a small pale head. Aroma is pale malt, a bit of Sweetness and wet paper. No etoh or hops to boot. This was a pretty plain beer 22 percentile is about right.

12oz. Bottle: Faint malt aroma. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head that disappeared immediately. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malts and cola. Medium body. Thin, watery texture. Average texture. Malty finish.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - APR 30, 2008
Poured a deep amber/copper color with a huge creamy head that lasted to the bottom of the glass. The nose was very fresh and clean to the senses, mostly roasted malts and slightly citrusy. The taste starts with big, lightly sweet malt, and the finish has a piney pleasantness to it. The aftertaste is dry and crisp. A quite drinkable beer and at 4% ABV, something that would make a nice session beer.
