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.

12 oz can poured. Pours a copper color with a foamy head. Wet, malty aroma. A lot of flavor for such a light, low abv lager. Doesnít really come off as a winter beer, but a decent sessionable beer overall. Not bad.

12 oz. bottle from Smithís grocery in Park City, UT. Light corn and biscuit aroma with a slight sour tinge. Crystal clear amber with a light tan head. Nice lager malt taste with some winter spice flavor. A bit of honey sweetness and a light rye-like dryness to balance it out. A good light winter lager that wonít cause you to have a yard sale if you have a couple.

12oz can pours a slightly hazy Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of caraml malt and bready dough yeast. Taste of dry doughy bread yeast, lightly sweet caramel malt, and light hop. Not bad for an Amber Lager.

Thisis12ptfont (1101) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Aromas of graham crackers, lager yeast, caramel and brown sugar. Pours amber/copper with moderately heavy foam. Taste is brown sugar, lager yeast, subtle caramel, graham cracker malt, wet cardboard malt and some maple. Overall, bit of more body than a standard lager yet still lacking.

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Draft at Rhinehaus, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear orange-gold color, near the darker end of the spectrum, with a small off-white ring and film for a head. Notes of toasted malts, leafy hops, sugars, and straw - there isnít much to this. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Uinta has some of the most straightfoward offerings of any brewery that bottles and distributes widely - maybe itís the 4% restriction? - and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnít. In this case, it works.

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.

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, itís par for course for an amber lager. Flavor isnít as full as Iíd 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, itís above average, but no better.

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 (1651) - 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.
