Third Shift is a fairly good attempt at an amber lager by a macro purveyor.
A: moderate carbonation and nice 1 finger head. dark amber color as expected. Thin disk of suds on top.
S: Neutral. Some toffee and bready maltiness and not much yeast or hops. Minor noble hop-like smells.
T: Nice, smooth amber lager. Nothing too offensive. Malty toffee and caramel are coming through, the yeast is neutral and hops are mild.
M: mildly creamy, on the lighter side of things.
O: Not a bad attempt at a vienna, but it is more an amber. It's doesn't have enough hops as vienna should be. Very drinkable and not bad. I will be getting a full case of this to experiment further.
Serving type: growler

Poured from 16oz tall can into a pint glass. This beer annoyingly foamed up all over the place upon opening, despite proper chilling.
Appearance: medium golden hue with a haze-free body and a surprisingly light effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam. A bit light for a Vienna lager, but not bad.
Smell: lightly bready malt aroma with minimal hop character. Not terribly complex, but pretty competent for the style.
Taste: bready, caramelly malt with a very light noble hop character and a minimal bitterness. A bit on the sweet side, but actually not a bad Vienna; it reminds me a lot of Mexican beer.
Mouthfeel: light body with a light effervescence. Reasonable for the style.
Overall: thirst-quenching and flavorful. Even if it is Coors, it's not a bad product.

Poured into a snifter
A: Clear amber with an off white one-finger head that stays.
S: Malt city. Caramel dominates this malt dance.
T: Smooth, sweet, malty, sessionable. Surprisingly good.
M: Medium with light to medium carbonation.
O: Better than I expected after all the advertising. A decent brew that friends can share around the barbecue pit, pretending they have a rare craft beer and feeling better about themselves.
Serving type: bottle
