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... 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.

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.

IrishBoy (4103) - 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.

Nuffield (4065) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Red-brown with good lacing. Aroma suggests sourness and a metallic touch, with little malt presence. The flavor is horrific--a sweet front lasting for just one second, after which this is a hollow, thin, malt water. Metallic, thin palate. Im very glad to see a brewer making a go of it in Utah but Im sorry to say that this beer needs wholesale review and improvement.

thegreenrooster (4003) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is a mild bready maltmwith some whiffs of caramel. Flavor is typical vienna lager with no bitterness and a bready malt. This is probably a bit thinner than the average lager though. A bit watery but it does have a decnt malt presence.

stevoj (3933) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Decent Vienna lager, beautiful pour, average sweet malt aroma and taste. Orange copper body and immediate fluffy head. Medium weight, but no winter spice, as others have mentioned. Pure Vienna all the way.

BelgianBeerGal (3838) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2010
12oz bottle from St George state liquor store. Pours a copper colour with a medium offwhite, foamy head. Aroma and flavour were characteristic of a sweeter, caramel malt heavy dark lager. Just a hint of hops but kept it somewhat balanced. Enjoyable.

LilBeerDoctor (3737) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts. Very toasted! Flavor is also quite toasted--lots of bread and cracker malts. Slight hints of sweet malt as well. Light bodied, perhaps a little too light/weak. Decent but nothing I’d seek out again.

12 oz can pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel and toast. Taste is sweet malts and some biscuit.

Pours a reddish orange color with aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Vanilla and caramel flavor with some toasted malt. Decent.
