look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Bottled 12/20/2011.

Color is somewhere between a pale ale and a red ale. Not much head, and no visible carbonation.

Smell is all malt and a touch of roastiness - no hops.

Taste is also mostly malt, though there is a touch of bitterness. 22 IBU sounds about right. Somewhat stale-tasting, but to be fair, this is six months old.

More carbonated than it looks. Finishes dry for how sweet it is. Creamy for a lager.

I don't know, maybe this is much better fresh. As it is, there is nothing to get excited about here.

Bottled March, 2012.

12oz. bottle served cold into a pint glass.

Yard Sale is a redish amber color with great clarity. It has thin white head that is short-lived and does not leave lacing on the glass.

Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel, toffee, and toasted grain.

Flavor is similar to that of a mild English brown ale. Slightly sweet, lightly roasted malts, very low hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light in body and balanced. Easy drinking and not by any means bland.

Overall a nice suprise. It may be a winter seasonal but I wouldn't mind having this year-round.

Bottled 3/8/12. Nice red color, good head. Smells malty, grains, lager-like I guess. The taste had a very interesting cereal flavor without being too grainy. I actually liked it. Overall it was nothing too crazy but I wouldn't turn down a bottle if someone offered me another.

Pours a clean/clear reddish amber color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy off-white head, which does leave some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, slight hop note, with some caramel. The taste is kinda sweet, malty, a little hop bitterness. Medium body. A nice little brew, worth checking out, I guess.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a SA perfect pint.

Pours a bright, clear, amber with a frothy tan head. Head is about a finger and a half high and leaves some sticky lacing. Nose kinda disappoints, not much going on, some toasted malts and that's about it. Taste has more going on but still a bit underwhelming. Some nice fruity esters up front followed by bready, biscuity malts. Mouthfeel, again, was thinner than I expected. Overall a bit of a let down, I expected a winter lager to be a bit heavier and more flavorful. It is definitely drinkable though, finished the whole six pack and woke up pleasantly hangover free this morning.

Bottle from Total Beverage Westminster poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and toasted malt. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, toasted malt and light earthiness with a crisp lingering malty finish.

unimpressed. yeah, its a lager, but this is a bore. oours a very clear light brown color with a small white head. smells malty, german, crystal palts, light, but no hop at all. flavor is the same, watery a bit, but malt based and very very low key. not what id expect in a winter beer, even a lager. nothing burley or hearty or meaty or spicy. mouthfeel is fine, crisp and quaffable, but overrated in my opinion. nothing special here.

found this at my local store.

A- clear pale amber color with small white head. not much lace

S- More malt up front than anything else. some hops come up but are overshadowed. not much else going on

T- clean and crisp amber. malt and hops work well together but a little flat for a winter beer.

M- thin and a bit watery. goes down well

O- Not bad but not something to seek out. much better beers from this brewer. No info on bottle or website about the ABV.
