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.
"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.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Roastiness right off the bat, with some toasted caramel nuttiness, needs more hops and comes off a little unbalanced.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle: Deep amber, quite hazy, moderate fizzy sand colored head, spotty lacing.   Grainy nose, slightly nutty.   Dull sweet malt start, slightly roasty, becoming more grainy and nutty as it progresses.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Fairly clean finish, given the graininess that starts out up front.   A bit of tang on the exit, even seems a tad bit citrusy.   Not half bad, but not really my favorite style.   Thanks Jordan for the bottle!

bhensonb (12787) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Medium malty aroma. Pale tan head, with a reddish coppery color. Slightly smoky malt for start, arguably a bit of coffee in the middle, defaulting to a rather (for a malty lager) dry finish, with malt flavor. Pretty minimal hop, but a nice alternative to the overly sweet German dark lagers. I like it, and I usually find lagers distasteful.

IrishBoy (3968) - 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.

travita (4538) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle The smell is caramel, malts, flowers, and ok. The look is golden in color and has an ok off white head. The taste is the same as the smell but with some sweetness coming through.

jgb9348 (5179) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Crisp deep amber coloured body with pungent ruby highlights and a two centimetre tall tan head with a lot of movement in the body. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, nuts and a hint of earth - not too much there. Light-bodied; Sharp toasted malt notes with a little earthiness, some light sweet toffee flavours and a hint of grass and herbal notes. Aftertaste relatively light with the malt and a little sugar coming through. Overall, a pretty underwhelming beer with a good malty flavour, but not much else and not really worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 07-February-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 16-February-2013.
