Pours slightly cloudy. Pure white foam covers but runs away faster that Carl Lewis. No lacing.
Aroma of light bread malts and lemon grass.
Taste follows. Light. Refreshing. Bread and lemon.
Light body and medium body form crisp, subtlety dry finish.
Easy drinking. Not as bad as some rating sites suggest. Enjoy!

One fine body…
Local’s 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.
Local’s is a perfect beer for the seasoned craft brew enthusiast and someone new to microbrews. When Short’s 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.
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
