Tmoney99 (10471) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Draft sampler at the brewpub in Pigeon Forge. Poured a clear straw color with a medium white head that diminished slowly with minimal lacing. Light hoppy citrus aroma. Light body with a watery texture. Light citrus flavor with a soft short finish. Wet cold alcohol with some character.

Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2011
A blonde lager with a thick white head. In aroma, light chalky malt, no hops. In mouth, a bland sweet malt with faint grassy hops, watery. On tap at Calhoun on the River, Oct. 22 2011.

BeerandBlues2 (9465) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Tap. Malt and faint yeast aromas, although not very much of either. Pours very light pale yellow with a tiny white head and very bubbly; some spotty lacing. Malty in flavor with some hop notes. Light and thin palate.

hopscotch (8914) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Draft... Clear, off-white lager with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. I had almost given up on pulling anything at all out of the nose when a whisper of citrus and green apple hit me. Acetaldehyde, Bud Lite clone flavor. Too thin to be really offensive like Bud Lite. Light-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish.

shrubber85 (7390) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle from brewery. Sour malt and rubber aroma. Pale yellow with small head. Rubber the dominant flavor - very light malt. Don’t know if it’s due to their bottling or this was old - the rubber taste was just too much.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2011
On tap at Calhoun’s, Knoxville (riverside location) as Calhouns Mountain Light on 9 July 2006. Pale straw colour. Scant aroma. Not a whole lot in the flavour department either. Not a lot to it at all really. Dry and reasonably refreshing but rather anodyne. Inoffensive, just like pretty much any other "brewpub" light beer in the US.

sebletitje (6602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2009
Sample at Calhoun’s, Knoxville, TN. pours clear goden, thin whtie head. aroma and taste were one dimensional, yet the beer was very enjoyable, pilsener like aroma with rice sweetness. Light in body with a light malty and bitter sweet finish. For the style, this was quite a surprise.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 8, 2008
Bottle courtesy of tronraner. Pours yellow/gold with a white head. Smells of wheat, hay, dry malt. Tastes nutty and dry with some nice hay hints and a lightly spicy finish. Lots of character.
