Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). The (newer?) bottled version of this beer has a more colorful label and goes by "Localís American Lager", but I confirmed with an employee via a phone call that itís the same beer and that they call it "Localís Light" at the brewpub. Looks solid; a fairly transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells mildly hoppy with notes of lager yeast and a touch of sweetness form the pils malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An easy-drinking sessionable lager.

Best light beer ive had, very drinkable and ultra smooth, but without much compromising of flavor, damn good

Great beer for those who yearn for the beach or boat. Light and crisp, yet flavorful with reminders of a wheat beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mostly clear pale yellow straw color. Minimal white head. Big white corn flavor, little else. Light body. Crisp, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Mild sweet taste, light bitter. Solid light lager, with a good finish to it. as light beers go I rate at the top of the malt heap.

bottle thanks to mike. nose is full of a corn and pils malt. pours fairly clear, very pale yellow, almost no head. thankfully it tastes a little better than it smells. a touch sweet and sugary. could stand to dry out a little and increase the carbonation. otherwise, not offensive or great.

tap. Pale golden with small head. As light beers go, this is pretty decent, but itís a style that underwhelms. Iíd rather have just about anything else Shorts makes.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
I am absolutely hoping this was a skunked bottle. I will re-rate this with the second bottle I have in the fridge. It was had at a tasting on January 13. The pour is decent. Itís a foggy gold with a decent white head, leaving no lace. This is the last of the good. The aroma smells like you just drained a can of processed crab meat, and poured the juice into a glass. Awful. The taste is just as awful, and itís trying to rot my palate as it sits there. Like I said, I am definitely hoping that the bottle was just skunked and the second one will be better. A re-rate to come

Very light and easy drinking. Almost seems like a shandy type lager with a lot of lemon. A slight black pepper feel as it goes down. A big bready finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light yellow color with a medium foamy head that fades slowly and leaves a little soapy lacing. Aroma is grass, lemons, grain, and light skunk. Crisp lager taste with some nice grass and lemony hops. I think the light skunkiness is just because the bottles is a few months old. Stinging, fizzy carbonation. Not bad overall but not something I enjoy drinking very often.
