I'd think it could've used some dry hopping and a higher mash temp or one of the many ways to create more body in the finish. With that said, I would've happily cruised through the batch with him while saying these things.

I make a 4.5% 60ibu beer on a regular basis. I usually use wlp 001. last time i used wlp 051 California ale V yeast. it really helped give the session beer a fuller body. it dosn't seem the clear very well and was a little cloudy.

It came out very well. I did dry hop with a half ounce of each hop. Keg was gone the first night!

Very well. Light bodied, but that was the goal for near 90 degree weather in the sun, but good bitterness. I did dry hop, and it made a huge difference.
