COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Localís Light is a light, yet very tasty lager. The light pilsen malt creates a soft and subtle flavor profile that finishes crisp and clean on your palate.

Localís Light is a perfect beer for the seasoned craft brew enthusiast and someone new to microbrews. When Shortís first opened, there was not a great deal of craft beer available in the area. Joe Short wanted to create a beer that would appeal to new craft beer drinkers who lived in Michigan, and introduce them to the complex flavors of other beer styles.

Bottle. Pours corn color. Tiny white head. Sweet grain aroma. Flavor also lightly sweet with grain. Nicely crisp and very drinkable. Would agree that this is a couple notches up from a macro so in that regards its a good beer for someone that wants to try something new that isnít really new, but at least done well. At 4% this is a great beer for sitting around the pool.

On tap in pint glass. Clear pale yellow small white head. Light lemon Andover biscuit on the nose. Light body, slightly sweet, no noticeable bitterness. Great replacement for cheap lawn mower.

Bottle. Clear pale yellow with short-lived white head. Aroma is bread with slight floral notes. Thin body with light carbonation (like flat soda). Not much going on with taste. Sweet, bready flavor with hints of fruit. Okay for a light beer. However, I wouldnít have bought it had I known it was a light beer, but unfortunately, Shorts has chosen to leave that tidbit off their packaging.

ebone1988 (423) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Aroma is bready, sweet, has a Belgian yeast quality about it. Appearance is yellow. Thatís about the best way to describe it. Taste is a mess. Super light but the breadiness and weird Belgian yeast taste come through with a vengeance. Mouthfeel is flat. Nothing to it really. Overall, I wasnít expecting much and boy did it deliver on that.

Onslow (1273) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear pale brew with fizzy head that immediately passes. Aroma of some bready malt and floral hops. Taste is mild sweet bread at that start with a mild fruity / floral finish. This is better than the average light beer - but the fruity / floral character does not give it much punch. I probably would not have bought it if the work "light" was in the title, it was labeled simply Local Lager.

bwa5879 (817) - Portage, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Supremely cloudy medium yellow with no head to mention. Scent is lemon and faint wheat, freshly waxed furniture, indistinct fruitiness and wildflowers, corniness beneath that is pleasant. Subtle carbonation for the style, crisp finish, oily mouthfeel. Light, syrupy, but nice pilsner taste; grass, lemon, pilsener malts, subtle corn, very sweet and syrupy. Like a much better high life or corona.

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a very, very pale yellow with a very thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is slight biscuit and some floral. Flavor follows with a nice floral finish. Not bad for what it is supposed to be, but still yuck. My bottle had the "Shorts Local" label and not the Shorts Local Light.
