One of the seasonal selections on tap at the brewpub in Orange, CA.
Clear, light gold (just a shade darker than yellow) color with a small white head. Minimal retention and/ or lace. The aroma was typical lager, some sweet graininess, a bit of floral hops. The flavor was decent, caramel malt with a touch of hop spice at the end. The body is light to medium, good carbonation. Light, refreshing, easily drinkable. The crowd I was with liked it as it was closest to Budweiser. Good enough, accept it for what it is.

On-tap at Alcatraz (Orange)

A: The pour is a clear light copper color with a small white head which leaves no lacing.

S: The aroma is mostly sweet malt and grain with a touch of skunk that is reminiscent of a macro lager.

T: The flavor is a bit better than the nose with some sweet malt, grain, and a touch of caramel. There might also have been a few hints of spice as well.

M: The body is not as terribly thin as I was expecting. The carbonation is moderate.

D: This is a beer that is drinkable in the "Bud Light" sense of the word. Not a beer I'd want to drink again, but it's easy to put down.
