Just an update on this one. The US-05 batch was much cleaner tasting than the US-04 batch, but that was to be expected. Like Pick Axe Blonde, there is not a lot going on in terms of hops. I just threw some cascade in the keg to beef it up a little bit. It's a light drinker, but if you like hops, you may want to add more. The next time I brew this, I will beef up the bittering hops slightly and then add more saaz at the end. Maybe even try dry hopping with the saaz for that nice aroma. I'm also going to add some crystal 10L to the grain bill. I'll add the sequel sometime this spring.
