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.

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.

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.

Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, bran muffins, wheat bread. Amber with an orange glow, and a mostly fading off-white head. Toasty and spicy with a subtle sweetness. Light-medium bodied.

Cybercat (4290) - Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Pours clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy eggshell head. Aroma is malty and a little fruity, not particularly strong or impressive. Malty flavor is not complex, but very drinkable; hints of vanilla and honey pop up as it goes across the palate. Texture is smooth and a little fizzy, average but still pleasing. If not a memorable beer, certainly good by itself or with a meal.

Pours a clear copper/brown color. A slight sweetness. The low alcohol sets this up as a pretty light beer. Toasted caramel malt aroma. Toffee and a slight bitter finish. Quick finish.

tennessejed420 (926) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2012
pours a hay colored amber, clear, with fluffy almost nitro looking off white head. Aroma of toffee, butter, light hay. Flavor has notes of caramel and hay with a lot of bubblegum on the finish. Medium bodied. Not bad but slightly lacking.

Scrapersnbeer (1530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Roasted malt and stewed vegetation for a nose. Dark copper color. Earthy, starchy malt taste. Stalked veggies and some tin. Easy drinker all around. Reminds me of cheaper dark lagers. I too have fallen on the ski slopes of Utah, and drinking beers at elevation likely contributed.

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Deep amber/copper color and clear with a small white head and no lacing. Aromas of toasted grains, bready malts and hay. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation. Flavor is mostly toasted and caramel malts, faint honey and vanilla sweetness with a light hop bitterness that finishes dry. Pretty crisp and clean. Meh, not for me.

WTF is going on with this beer? I’ve never had anything like it before, so it gets points for creativity. However, I don’t really care for it. Sweet, malty, strange hop bite, an aftertaste I can’t put my finger on. Perplexing...

Can from Chevy Chase Beer and Wine. Nose is skunk, hoppy. Taste is grassy, hoppy with caramel. It’s a bit boring though. Not much going on. Dry finish with slightly fruity notes.
