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.

Dark amber to copper color. Modest, but stable ecru head. Grainy, malty, bready scents. Just a hint of herbal hops. Mostly malty flavors with toasted and caramel malt. Light sweetness lingers through to the end. Could use a touch more hopping, but nt a bad amber lager (something I’m usually not real keen on).

Bottle. Pours a rusty amber with a small passive white head. It’s gone before you know it! Aroma seems faint. Light fruit, perhaps, and a mild maltiness. It barely has an odor. The slightest loss of your olfactory senses would render this the beer odorless. Taste is a bit better. Some floral notes, more fruit and a pleasant maltiness attempt to balance it. It’s actually pretty flavorful for 4%. Body is a bit thin and somewhat carbonated. Finish is more fruit and malt. Thinned, however. Lacks a decent finish. Not horrible though.

My thoughts on this one is that this is just another okay amber. Malty and I guess true to style, just not that tasty to me.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours and orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is very malty with some corn. The flavor is malty with some sweetness, but the corn is still there. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

ganache (5951) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle best before 03/13/13. Nose is lightly grainy, definite German lager yeast, a little sweetness with the pretzel dough and probably some Munich. Pours a beautiful dark amber-brown body and a short tan head. Very crisp full body, dense (and essentially impenetrable, simple) malt, mostly dry with a spritz of citrus on the back, hops are minimal but not absent, and there’s stability despite the light edge forward in malt. Water seems extra hard.

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.

Bottled on March 8th - yea, I’m drinking a winter lager in late spring - what’s 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.

Cybercat (5877) - 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.

snoworsummer (5746) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Can at the Gnarly Barley. Pours clear bright copper with a fizzy, bubbly off white head. Tastes like caramel and bready malt, corn, some citrus hops, and musky grains. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like corn, caramel and bready malt, musky grains, and some citrus hops.

hayduke (5548) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured translucent amber with dingy off-white head. Nose of Noble hops. Medium body. Smooth in the mouth. Malls dominate with hops ion the background. Something like coffee or chocolate is there as well. There is light bitter finish but mostly it just tails off. OK drinking but not very excising.
