I really enjoyed this beer. It has a light in color, cloudy look in the glass. The taste was smooth with a slight bitterness. I was really impressed with this beer. I have tried quite a few of the other Brooklyn beers and was thrilled to have tried Local 1 as my final 200th beer. Would definitely have it again!!
