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.

Clean and soft copper amber pour with two fingers of sticky dirty white head. Nose is grainy and bready with toasted malt and earthy notes. A light grassy quality and touch of sweetness show as well. Dry on the finish. Bready and toasty innocuous malt profile with a light hop character showing. Somewhat vegetal character.

Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Golden orange with a good sized off-white head. Aroma is of grain. Taste is the same.

Cybercat (4432) - Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Pours clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy eggshell head. Aroma is malty and a little fruity, not particularly strong or impressive. Malty flavor is not complex, but very drinkable; hints of vanilla and honey pop up as it goes across the palate. Texture is smooth and a little fizzy, average but still pleasing. If not a memorable beer, certainly good by itself or with a meal.

ajnepple (4370) - Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Deep amber/copper color and clear with a small white head and no lacing. Aromas of toasted grains, bready malts and hay. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation. Flavor is mostly toasted and caramel malts, faint honey and vanilla sweetness with a light hop bitterness that finishes dry. Pretty crisp and clean. Meh, not for me.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2015
12oz bottle. Amber color, tall white foam. Smells of malts. Definitely an Amber Lager of even a Vienna. Tastes of lightly toasted cereal, earthy hops notes. Wooded flavors in the finish. Perfect to drink with a meal. (4288)

maxwelldeux (4268) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very clear but dark amber color with a small head. Nose is a little toasty, actually. Slight toasty flavor, too, with some great malty tones in there. Good lager...

boFNjackson (4195) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle... Poured reddish-brown with a nice forming head. Nutty, toasted malty aroma. Quite malty. Easy drinking. Nutty, toasted grains, a mild hop spice for balance, and sweetness with cereal-grain, bready finish.

snoworsummer (4034) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Can at the Gnarly Barley. Pours clear bright copper with a fizzy, bubbly off white head. Tastes like caramel and bready malt, corn, some citrus hops, and musky grains. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, caramel and bready malt, musky grains, and some citrus hops.

IrishBoy (4023) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 4, 2012
12 oz bottle from Douglas88. (Name is familiar to skiers who know what a yard sale is; I often help others collect their gear after they conduct one) Nose is nutty with some caramel, and yeast. Rusty red with a medium off white head. Flavor is caramel and a little toast. Nothing spectacular but it is drinkable, a decent average brew.

Light amber color with a fluffy off white head that left sheets of lacing on the glass. Light grain and honey nose. Some sour dough bread notes with caramel and honey sweetness and a bit of earthy bitterness in the finish.
