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.

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 iíve 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, Iím drinking a winter lager in late spring - whatís 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.

gripweed57 (1291) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Bright copper color topped by a small bubbly off-white head. Grainy, earthy toasted malt aroma. Mild toasted malt flavor with a very light biscuit, caramel backbone. Dryish grassy hops are indistinct. Finish is dry and uninspiring. Lacks complexity or depth. I was hoping for more.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 "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..."

12oz can at the Viking yurt on the mountain in park city. Malty and bread flavors. Mild. Poundable but not the best tasting lager. Does the job

BierMeHoos (533) - Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle, standard 6-pack from Old Line Fine Wine, Spirits & Bistro. Appearance is clear burnt orange, on the lighter side, and a huge meringue-like head. Aroma is spices and cedar wood, and some maltiness. Taste is mellow blend of cedar, peppery spices, and nuttiness. Palate is light body. Overall its easy drinking, and kind of plain.
