Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint mug. I'm not overly familiar with the style, but I'll do what I can.
Appearance: Pours a crystal-clear, rust-orange color, with three fingers of frothy off-white head that subsides fairly quickly. Leaves tons of lacing. Pretty nice looking beer.
Smell: Very mild. A surprisingly strong grassy/citrus aroma from the hops. A hint of bready malt in the background.
Taste: An initial bite, almost tangy, that fades into a smooth, bready/grassy finish. A simple beer, and the overall flavor is very mild. The aftertaste does linger for quite a while, however.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, and very, very thin. Makes the beer seem watery, and the flavor as well.
Drinkability: Goes down easy, and is enjoyable for what it is. A nice brew to have a couple of with some fajitas. Probably not the best representation of the style, but a decent brew.
Serving type: bottle

Had this at a local Mexican restaurant. Decent and comparable to Yuengling (my favorite mass-produced beer). Here goes:
A: OK, not good or bad. Beer pours a dark brown with a one inch head that quickly dissipates. Very little lacing, too, but not bad.
S: Not that much going on here. Caramel malt is present but it's very light (hardly detectable). No hops or yeast.
T: Good. Presence of burnt caramel malt imparts toasty characteristics. It tastes like a watered-down Yuengling. As I was drinking it I was wishing it was Yuengling instead.
M: Light-bodied; lighter than Yuengling. Slight bready character makes up for the light body somewhat, though. Not bad.
O: OK beer. Would rather have a Yuengling, but not bad.
