I liked this beer in its simplicity. I am not a big lager fan, but this one hit the spot. A bit dark for the Classic "American Lager" category with a light head and no lacing.
Smell is pretty much not there.
Taste is a nice balance of malt and hops with a nice clean crisp taste. Enjoyable and simple like a good 3 chord song. Hops presence is duly noted when burping.
Mouthfeel is a little to prickly for me, especially toward the end.
I could drink this regularly with no complaints. A nice solid beer.

Rated to enjoyment, not to style.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a 1" thick, rocky head with great retention. Significant visible carbonation. Lacing goes all down the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Fruity, tropical, grapefruit; malty background. It's those Cascade hops! Smells great, but doesn't seem like a Vienna lager.
Taste: Dry, clean arrival, bitter and clean across mid-palate. Dry, hoppy finish. It could use a little more malt, but it is a lager, not an ale, after all.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, good carbonation.
Overall: Really pleasant. Because this doesn't quite seem like a Vienna lager, what with the strong American hopping, I'm not going to rate it as one (BJCP does not have a category for American Amber Lager - that's a problem...). This is a beer I could come back to again and again. It is a well-structured, balanced, hoppy craft lager. Easily one of my top five beers of all time. Clean, refreshing, and remarkable (but not a Vienna lager).
