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

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Pellucid amber color, thin head and light lacing. Nose of light cinnamon, crystal malt and a snappy grassy hop note. The flavor has a decent body with lightly metallic caramel malts and a bit of cold carbonation and hop bitterness; not very pronounced though. The finish is metallic and a bit skunky and showing more of the adjunt side of lagers. You need a very fine and/or clean palate to really get anything out of this. Light, uninspiring and low alcohol. Bad combination.

Medium amber color, small head. Aroma is malty and appley fruity. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are mild yet flavorful. Hops are also mild. Mild tasting beer, yet it does have some flavor to it. I do wonder how you can get ANY flavor out of a beer that’s limited to 4% alcohol. Nothing really good or bad to say about this beer. Drinkable but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty.

Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
On Tap – Light brown color with a thin head. The lager had a malty flavor with some light spices in the finish which was also very dry. Some smokey and deep dark malts used.

hayduke (5212) - 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.

stevoj (5049) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Decent Vienna lager, beautiful pour, average sweet malt aroma and taste. Orange copper body and immediate fluffy head. Medium weight, but no winter spice, as others have mentioned. Pure Vienna all the way.

chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2017
12 oz can at the Spring 2017 ASMF. Clear copper colored body topped but a fine white head. Plenty of lacing. Way more spicing in the complex nose than in the more bready flavor. Medium-light body with lively carbonation.

travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle The smell is caramel, malts, flowers, and ok. The look is golden in color and has an ok off white head. The taste is the same as the smell but with some sweetness coming through.
