3.34/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is hazy light pale lager in color. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only wispy lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bready and corn-like malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by corn-like malts. Only slight amounts of hops and associated bitterness are noticeable, but there are enough to prevent any sweetness. There is no bad aftertaste compared to some of the other beers in the style.
M: It feels light-to medium-bodied and slightly smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seemed to be fuller in body compared to the light lagers made by macro breweries, but didn't have any offensive flavors in the taste or aftertaste.

Shorts Local LIght is from Bellaire, Michigan

This is Shorts version of a drinkable lager such as budlight or other domestic beers.

It pours a pale gold, and you can see through it in the glass. Has a decent head, which is leaves a white lace. Smells like the typical yeasty and "beer" smelling lagers. It is crisp tasting lager, but does not offer much in ways of complex flavors. Very yeasty tasting overall, but it has a refreshing a crisp aftertaste which is nice.

Drinkability: This is a very drinkable beer in the sense that you could pound a six pack without any problems. If you are at a tailgate and are wanting to drink several beers throughout the day, this would be an excellent craft alternative to BL, ML, and other domestic lagers. Not a beer that I would pick up when looking for a unique sensory experience.
