What was your OG and FG? If it has a thin mouthfeel, I would guess you have a low FG. Carbonation will help give it a thicker mouthfeel though. I would just give your beer the recommended 3 weeks in the bottle and see what it is like then.
According to the recipe the OG was supposed to be 1061 but it ended up being 1047. FG was ~1018.

You used extract? If that's true your OG was probably where it was supposed to and the wort was not evenly mixed when you took the reading. For a FG of 1.018 it should not be watery at all.

I agree re: waiting longer to bottle condition and then be sure you chill well before making a final impression.

But your fermentation temps were also a little high which can create esters and fusels. If the beer ends up tasting odd, that could be why.

It's not that it tastes odd, the problem is that it is lacking taste. there is almost no taste at all. I'll report back in a few weeks.
