Cloudy straw color. Leans sweet, but very tasty for 4% alcohol. Credit to Shorts for making an American lager in this age of 10% ABV ales.
Earlier Rating: 9/20/2007 Total Score: 3.4
Cloudy straw color. Hops in both aroma and taste. Better than any BMC light beer. I believe Iím adding this in the right style, but please correct me if Iím wrong

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
