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.

Carmel and fresh dough on the nose. A really pleasant beer overall. Slightly dry yet creamy, very drinkable.

This is an interesting red winter lager, yeasty and a bit of chocolate. Bottle pours a dark red-brown with a medium white head. Taste is nutty-malt and finishes almost like a light stout.

What can I say? Itís 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 íasparagusí). But it is what it is, a lager.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 (24Feb2003--re-rate) Much improved. Same positive comments on the flavor. More reasonable head and persistent effervescence this time. Still not outstanding, but not bad. (31Jan2003--12oz.bottle) first selection from my "beer of the month". The quintessential "average beer"; not much going on, but without major faults. Pours with an enormous (slightly distressing) rocky head, light amber in color, spongy, slowly receding, lacy. Beer has a deep amber color. Very light aroma; little to no hop presence, dominant crystal/chocolate malt. Effectively no real malt presence in the palate, except for a touch of the chocolate/crytal malts, fairly sweet, little to no bitterness. Despite the huge, rocky head, there is little real effervescence, giving the beer has a relatively thin mouthfeel. Utah brewers are hamstrung by the max 4% ABV limitation, but they nontheless usually try commendably to produce real beer.

Clear redish brown thick head that diminishes quick. Mild carbonation. Smells malty Carmely and sweet little earthiness. Very light and easy to drink. Little sticky on the tounge. Not a bad beer on the back porch in the heat.

Tried one immediately after skiing 8 runs in 4 hrs. @ Mad River Glen VT - quite restorative! Great looking and decent flavor, with appropriate balance of malt & hops. Liked their Hop Nosh in a can as well.

Donít know if I got a bad batch or what, but this may be the worst beer Iíve had from a Utah craft brewer. Iíd rather drink BMC than this. Terrible both in aroma and flavor.

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

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.
