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.

Draft in Vegas, baby! Clear amber color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper. Taste spiced bitter straw.

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.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2003
I say this beer lands on the ale side. Malty aromas. Somewhat sweet to dry in the taste. Very little presense of hops. Not too bitter or dry in the aftertaste. Not a bad beer.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Clear, amber/copper color, decent ring of beige foam above, assuredly slimming down to a miniscule size. Aroma: Very malty, coppery, plentiful yeast in the nose, with a definite coppery feel, and a hint of fruit. Taste: very mild, with little hop presence, and toffee-ish malt tones. Mouthfeel is negligible, and the body is a little less than medium. Nothing wrong with that, though, its par for course for an amber lager. Flavor isnt as full as Id like, however, and points are lost there. but it is tasty, if a bit too tinny, and extra-drinkable to be sure. For the style, its above average, but no better.

LilBeerDoctor (3442) - 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.

guzzler67 (1495) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Clear, deep amber appearance with a small beige head and decent lacing. Muted, slightly vegetal, aroma saved by caramel in the background. Grainy flavors up front; turned sweet (as in honey and caramel) before getting to the aftertaste, where the sweetness lingered. Light-to-medium bodied mouthfeel, modestly hopped, with a short lived finish.

boFNjackson (4130) - 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.

jeffs515 (123) - Ogden, Utah, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Clear redish brown thick head that diminishes quick. Mild carbonation. Smells malty Carmely and sweet little earthiness. Very light and easy to drink. Little sticky on the tounge. Not a bad beer on the back porch in the heat.

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.
