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 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.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 "Pretty nice amber red lager with lots of little subtleties. Vanilla, Carmel, toasted malt and a nice crisp hop bite. Nice session brew that is anything but boring..."

Ernest (6731) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber to light brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain/cereal), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of decaying plums. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Quite disappointing. Not much malt or hop character in the nose and it has a rotting fruit odor too. Bland in the mouth with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. A dumper.

Cletus (6355) - 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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle: Deep amber, quite hazy, moderate fizzy sand colored head, spotty lacing.   Grainy nose, slightly nutty.   Dull sweet malt start, slightly roasty, becoming more grainy and nutty as it progresses.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Fairly clean finish, given the graininess that starts out up front.   A bit of tang on the exit, even seems a tad bit citrusy.   Not half bad, but not really my favorite style.   Thanks Jordan for the bottle!

To sweet for me.

Braudog (6016) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Bottle: Dark woody amber with a thin head. Little to no aroma. The flavor is quite tart ... hint of ashen smoke, maybe, but almost puckeringly tart predominately. Not a fan.

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.

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.
