Great tasting easy drinking lager, would definitely try again. Smooth malty flavor, not dry finish. Corn smell, reminds me of a more complex version of Pabsy blue ribbon.

Argh. I had this beer since 5 Horses ran out of Sculpin's grapefruit IPA that I heard was quite good. When the waitress said none was left, I panicked, and ordered this beer. Once I broke out my trusty beer advocate app and saw the photo, I realized I have had this before. A useful app feature would be an alarm that rings when a beer approaches I have had and don't want. Someone needs to work on this.
Anyways, this beer came and since it was a work lunch it was fine. Mildly toasty lager, with nothing that bad, but nothing that great. I don't like Winter or Yard Sale's, so I should have known better.
So to sum up, the beer app needs an alarm, and this beer is ok

Justification seems like such an intriguing request -- but anyway, the beer is really nice, it does everything it attempts to do very well. It's an amber lager that tastes like an amber lager and I find that noteworthy and admirable.

It's snowing out. There's snow on the bottle. Destiny.

Amber. Persistent thin head leaves multiple lace rings around my glass. A fine looking' lager. Toasted malt and slightly nutty aroma. Tastes toasty with a balance neutral noble hop balance.

Like a slightly smoother Long Trail Ale.

Strange aftertaste - plastic like. Nothing I would revisit.

Yard Sale is an apropos name for this beer: it's pretty much junk that Uinta is selling to whomever will take a chance on it. Technically, this beer smells like Budweiser and tastes like a lager, but with a much darker hue. If you're into lagers, this might be somewhat interesting but it will be a lot more expensive than your typical lager. Me, I'm not a fan.

Like a Bud Light clone that costs twice as much... Avoid.
