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.

Ernest (7511) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber to light brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain/cereal), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of decaying plums. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Quite disappointing. Not much malt or hop character in the nose and it has a rotting fruit odor too. Bland in the mouth with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. A dumper.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Canned. Poured clear, bright reddish-orange with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up fruity and caramel notes with light spicy accents. The flavor found sweet caramel at the core with fruity notes, some spices, and light oxidation around.. muddled finish. Light-medium bodied and tacky on the palate.. OK, but not the least bit exciting.

Strykzone (7033) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2016
12 ounces from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Amber and generally clear beer with an off white two finger head. Caramel and grain flavor and aroma. Noble hops bring a little sulfur. Just a little fruit. Not exciting but at 4% . . .

5000 (6862) - 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!
