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.

Another hookup from douglas88, 12 oz. bottle, bottled 11/7/07. Pours nice amber, with a brief head. Clean malt smell is just starting to show some papery oxidation around the edges. Still shows a nice, amber malty taste, like a good lawnmower/bowling alley beer. Sticky texture, a bit nutty and bready, with a calm, assured noble hop background. Another example of how to make a decent lower-alcohol beer.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours copper with a decent off white head and a red hue. Smells of dough, yeasty and earthy. Tastes of citrus, vegetal, some chewable vitamins, caramel. Finishes tarte.

jrob21 (2677) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Pours a clear copper/brown color. A slight sweetness. The low alcohol sets this up as a pretty light beer. Toasted caramel malt aroma. Toffee and a slight bitter finish. Quick finish.

Bottle from Smiths. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is moslty lightly roasted malts, nuts, and light spices. The taste is also pretty light; some roasted malts, some odd sweet flavors, and overall a light crisp flavor. Decent.

On Tap – Light brown color with a thin head. The lager had a malty flavor with some light spices in the finish which was also very dry. Some smokey and deep dark malts used.

nimbleprop (5210) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Poured a translucent copper with a short, slightly lacing white head. Smells metallic and clean. Flavor was malty and did taste like beer. Wasn’t great, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d read. Tastes slightly medicinal and a faint hint of candy. Finish was clean and sublte. Not the greatest beer I’ve had, but not the worst.

14oz bottle. Thin, watery, clear golden pour with no head. Absence of any aroma. Prepare to cringe after your first sip; the beer tastes like pills without the sweet coating on them. Aside from bitterness, I could taste honey and something else. Gets a little more palatable later. Absolutely horrid aftertaste. Clearly, something has gone wrong in this beer. Not recommended.
