A - very typical of the style. Light straw color, little head and not much retention. Average.
S - skunky smell. Smells like a cheap adjunct other than that though.
T - varies a lot. Pretty good in my opinion if you buy it in the 12 pack box. I think that keeps the light out of it. Not terrible in a 6-pack, but pretty skunked. Don't buy this as a single unless you want to kno what a skunky beer taste like. If it's not skunked though this is actually an above average adjunct. Has a nice hop character and balance for the style. Good in cans if you can find them.
M - too much carbonation. Otherwise avg for the style.
D - very drinkable just like most adjuncts.
Overall I think this beer gets an undeserved bad reputation. If it's the skunk taste that gets you, give it a try in cans if you can find it, really above average taste for a macro adjunct. Can be a little pricy for what it is though.
