LocAle is an American Blonde Ale brewed by SaltWater Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a pilsener glass from a can.
The ale pours a clear golden whose clarity becomes lightly cloudy as it settles. It’s topped by a thick cap of dense white foam that shows modest retention. A smattering of lace clings to the sides. Ample effervescence is visible in the glass.
The aroma is faint with a tart note of lemon and sweet grain.
The palate begins with a taste of bready malt that turns decidedly tart with a squeeze of lemon juice. A backbone of biscuit ties the palate together.
The body is light with moderately-high carbonation. Finishes astringently.
LocAle is light and refreshing. Its tartness isn’t typical for the style but isn’t overpowering. And adds to its refreshment.
