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.

Not quite my thing, and kind of tastes like the leftovers of a yard sale. Typical Christmas type aromas. A little too sweet. Bottle.

radagast83 (6962) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Not a whole lot of aroma comes from this beverage, slight malt smell. Flavor is a little to be desired. Malty, hoppy, flavor is a little too watery for my tastes. Not awful, just not great.

Keg @ Sedona. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The nose is of strong caramel. Hints of cocoa. Pain au chocolate. Bready body. More cocoa. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Light body, moderate carbonation. Solid.

5000 (6599) - 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!

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.

Braudog (6219) - Yorktown, Virginia, 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.
