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.

Poured from can. Copper color with off white head. Toasted malt aroma with light citrus and herbal notes. Flavor starts out toasted and caramel malt followed with some vanilla. Finishes very clean light floral hop. Kind of a creamy vanilla aftertaste. Very smooth and clean beer.

Cinnamon caramel oak toast—not a new breakfast cereal but what i smell. I taste Wheat toast, lemon, non-maple syrup. Clear ruddy amber with a quick tan head A little thin in the mouth. Thin sticky finish.

At least it tastes like a lager, where many Viennas taste like ales. 4% can ruin a style that is usually strong, but it does not seem to hurt a lager. Not a bad beer overall.

pours a hay colored amber, clear, with fluffy almost nitro looking off white head. Aroma of toffee, butter, light hay. Flavor has notes of caramel and hay with a lot of bubblegum on the finish. Medium bodied. Not bad but slightly lacking.

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.

scooterbub (910) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 7, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice deep copper with a large two inch light tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, hops, pine, resin. Similar aroma. The body is light and watery, but decent. The finish is rather clean. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable, but maybe because it is the beginning of spring, it is slightly disappointing.

update 4/8/02: I just had a sample that hid this skunky unpleasant sour apple finis that makes me think its bad. Original Rating:soft pleasant aroma, burgundy in color, relativly transparent. creamier head then any utah beer i’ve seen till this point. lacking in both hops and malts but still refreshing. Uinta seems to do better with lagers

12 oz. bottle from Smith’s grocery in Park City, UT. Light corn and biscuit aroma with a slight sour tinge. Crystal clear amber with a light tan head. Nice lager malt taste with some winter spice flavor. A bit of honey sweetness and a light rye-like dryness to balance it out. A good light winter lager that won’t cause you to have a yard sale if you have a couple.

Toasty, medium caramel, and lightly sweet flavor and aromas. Nice balance of malt characteristics. Some herbal hop flavor. Light to moderate bitterness.
