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.

Draft in Vegas, baby! Clear amber color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper. Taste spiced bitter straw.

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.

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..."

cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle @ home. Dark copper appearance with a small to medium-sized tan head. Very toasty, hugely nutty, dark caramel malty nose. Smooth, lightly syrupy mouth feel. There’s a huge nutty, caramel taste in the flavor that’s very rich and roasty. The whole flavor seems a little over the top.

2.6
BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Can at home. Clear reddish amber pour with a rocky head - good looking. Toast, caramel, some malt. Palate is a little thin. Pretty average Vienna.
