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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Pellucid amber color, thin head and light lacing. Nose of light cinnamon, crystal malt and a snappy grassy hop note. The flavor has a decent body with lightly metallic caramel malts and a bit of cold carbonation and hop bitterness; not very pronounced though. The finish is metallic and a bit skunky and showing more of the adjunt side of lagers. You need a very fine and/or clean palate to really get anything out of this. Light, uninspiring and low alcohol. Bad combination.

EithCubes (5458) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle best before 03/13/13. Nose is lightly grainy, definite German lager yeast, a little sweetness with the pretzel dough and probably some Munich. Pours a beautiful dark amber-brown body and a short tan head. Very crisp full body, dense (and essentially impenetrable, simple) malt, mostly dry with a spritz of citrus on the back, hops are minimal but not absent, and there’s stability despite the light edge forward in malt. Water seems extra hard.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Dark amber to copper color. Modest, but stable ecru head. Grainy, malty, bready scents. Just a hint of herbal hops. Mostly malty flavors with toasted and caramel malt. Light sweetness lingers through to the end. Could use a touch more hopping, but nt a bad amber lager (something I’m usually not real keen on).

My thoughts on this one is that this is just another okay amber. Malty and I guess true to style, just not that tasty to me.

beerguy101 (5354) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Medium amber color, small head. Aroma is malty and appley fruity. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are mild yet flavorful. Hops are also mild. Mild tasting beer, yet it does have some flavor to it. I do wonder how you can get ANY flavor out of a beer that’s limited to 4% alcohol. Nothing really good or bad to say about this beer. Drinkable but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty.

Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
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.

12oz can at the Viking yurt on the mountain in park city. Malty and bread flavors. Mild. Poundable but not the best tasting lager. Does the job

altonbrownd (5281) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Can from Chevy Chase Beer and Wine. Nose is skunk, hoppy. Taste is grassy, hoppy with caramel. It’s a bit boring though. Not much going on. Dry finish with slightly fruity notes.

12oz. Bottle: Faint malt aroma. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head that disappeared immediately. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malts and cola. Medium body. Thin, watery texture. Average texture. Malty finish.
