Very late on this post. This beer turned out fairly good. It was much more hoppy than I had expected, not nearly as balanced as the Anchor Steam. It seemed much closer to a traditional pale ale. It is amazing how noticeable the lager yeast character was in the aroma and the front end of the taste. Next time, I will likely add a bit more maltodextrin and try a different hop variety.
