Maltiness/body

Seems a little thin, lacks the malty backbone of the commercial examples I have tried. Next time, I will add a bit of pale Munich, perhaps mash a bit hotter, maybe 153. WLP802 yeast not as good as some of the other WL lager strains, may use WLP940 Mexican Lager, have had great results with that strain.
