Great. I just brewed my first lager. The fermentation went as expected and it is sitting in the beer fridge lagering as we speak. I started out at 65* per the wyeast package for 12 hours and lowered it to 50*. No you all have me worried it's going to suck.

Did you smell/taste it before you kegged it?

Yeah, the Wyeast smack packs are notorious for recommending underpitching. Did you make a starter? You really need to make them for liquid yeast, and the need is magnified for lagers. Will your beer be okay? I don't know, you'll have to wait and see. Next time make a starter, pitch at fermentation temps, and you won't have to worry.
