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.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 (24Feb2003--re-rate) Much improved. Same positive comments on the flavor. More reasonable head and persistent effervescence this time. Still not outstanding, but not bad. (31Jan2003--12oz.bottle) first selection from my "beer of the month". The quintessential "average beer"; not much going on, but without major faults. Pours with an enormous (slightly distressing) rocky head, light amber in color, spongy, slowly receding, lacy. Beer has a deep amber color. Very light aroma; little to no hop presence, dominant crystal/chocolate malt. Effectively no real malt presence in the palate, except for a touch of the chocolate/crytal malts, fairly sweet, little to no bitterness. Despite the huge, rocky head, there is little real effervescence, giving the beer has a relatively thin mouthfeel. Utah brewers are hamstrung by the max 4% ABV limitation, but they nontheless usually try commendably to produce real beer.

Bottle. No clue who sent me this... maybe I bought it. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium head and a little bit of lacing. Looks rather boring. Toasty, malty nose with slight hop, but not much. Flavor gets much better with 2nd and 3rd drink. Nice and biting with a dry finish. This is a good and crisp beer that I believe fits the style well and is a fine brew. Body is of course light, but nice brisk carbonation. Good stuff.

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.

Deer Valley Resort. Bottle. Nice reddish color with smell of sweetness to it. Malt was there along with some dried fruity taste. Not much of head retention. Thin mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great either

jcos (1541) - Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on January 24th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a caramel clear.
  Aroma: Aroma of caramel, bread, sweet.
  Taste: Bready malt, light caramel.
    Palate:Light body.

Summary: An okay vienna, tends to have some of the characteristics I dislike in some poor lagers. not what I expect when opening up a Uinta made beer.

Finhead (1189) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Clear, amber pour wit a frothy, off-white head. The aroma has milk chocolate, caramel, and mild vanilla. It has a light body with somewhat thin texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with quick finish.

"Pretty nice amber red lager with lots of little subtleties. Vanilla, Carmel, toasted malt and a nice crisp hop bite. Nice session brew that is anything but boring..."

update 4/8/02: I just had a sample that hid this skunky unpleasant sour apple finis that makes me think its bad. Original Rating:soft pleasant aroma, burgundy in color, relativly transparent. creamier head then any utah beer i’ve seen till this point. lacking in both hops and malts but still refreshing. Uinta seems to do better with lagers

3.2% draft @ brewery. An amber lager which was almost oderless. Nutty taste with fizzy dry finish.

Bottled on March 8th - yea, I’m drinking a winter lager in late spring - what’s it to you, huh? - pour is amber with a light haze - nose is lightly estery, with moderate husky graininess, toffee - a bit watery in texture and thin in body - carbonation is moderate and beefs up the mouthfeel somewhat - flavor is somewhat dry, with a lot of the huskiness from the aroma, a touch of roasted nuts - a touch of spiciness on the tail end - not that good, but not as terrible as some of the ratings suggest.
