Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a small ecru head that fades fast to a fine gauze and ring; no lace. Aroma of orange and lemon, some sweet malt, and a little floral/grasssy note. Taste is grassy, maybe even a little waxy; some browned apple note followed by lemony/sour hops. Mouthfeel is full but slightly on the watery side; slight carbonation; somewhat dry.
However ends up being moderately drinkable. Could have a few.

Rail Yard Ale – American Ale (5.2%) - Wynkoop Brewing Co. (Colorado)
App: Pours a heavy copper/amber color with a tan one finger head that dissipates fairly quickly with lackluster retention.
Smell: Subtle nose of toasted malt without a strong bouquet. Slight organic graininess with almost no recognizable hops presence.
Taste: Malty and sweet, tastes much like an Oktoberfest. Can states the beer is Oktoberfest malt and hops with English ale yeast. None of the esters I was hoping for, and none of the crispness I associate with German lager. Lot's of raw worth tastes left over. Hops almost totally absent, leaving this beer sweet and unbalanced overall. Aftertaste is a lingering sweetness with no hops. Too grainy for me.
Mouth: A little thin on the body side, but overall decent. Light carbonation fits well with the style.
Home tasting, 12oz can into Pint Glass. 12/15/13

3.19/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
A: A slightly hazy light copper colored ale with a persistent ivory colored head.
S: A moderate citrus hop aroma with a low malt aroma that has a light caramel character to it.
T: The the medium hops bitterness is in the forefront backed by a light citrus hops flavor with a moderate caramel flavor. There is a moderate malt sweetness making for a balance that is moderately bitter. The yeast seems like a clean Chico style bring just a light fruit note. The finish is of dry with an quick aftertaste of caramel and citrus hops.
M: A creamy, medium bodied beer with a moderately-strong level of carbonation.
O: A middle of the road ale with a fair amount of hops bitterness and some malt with a pleasant creamy body.

12 fl oz. can, with no apparent freshness date present. My first beer from Wynkoop Brewing Company, I ordered this beer and two others from LetsPour.com recently and I finally received my package yesterday, so I figured why wait any longer?
Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.
A - Pours a coppery red / burnt orange colored body with one finger of doughy creamy off-white foam for a head. Head thins out quickly.
S - Amber / Oktoberfest malts are most apparent upon the initial sniff. Some copper, breadiness, peaches, apricots. Not pulling out any hop content from the nose, but otherwise smells pretty on point.
T - Taste reminds me perhaps of a more well-built version of Magic Hat #9. Some sweet tangy apricot / peach fruitiness & copper / caramel malts. Maybe a hint of grassy earthiness & some vague spices, but I'm not really getting much in the way of hops.
M - Smooth, quick, and clean feel. Bit of a coppery, fruity finish, but hardly any flavors lingering around for very long.
Overall, probably not the best effort from Wynkoop Brewing Company, not packing a ton of flavor, but a drinkable, sessionable beer. I will have no trouble finishing off the four cans of this stuff I have, and I look forward to the rest from Wynkoop.
