Hey Ozarks (I'll call you that because I don't know your name). When you've used US-05 for your Summer Lager recipe have you encountered a peachy/fruity ester? You seem to cite low fermentation temps for your 05 recipes and I've got a light blonde that definitely picked up some peach notes when I brewed it in teh low 60's with the 05. If I brewed your Summer Lager recipe and got a little of the same thing, I think I'd have a dead ringer for Lone Star. It's got a malt/corn/fruit sweetness (almost peachy) that not a lot of other beers have. The reason I ask is that I'm brewing a version of your recipe this weekend and was just having a couple of Lone Stars last night (used to drink a lot of it before getting back into brewing). Since I haven't had any in quite a while, the sweet flavor really struck me and also really reminded me of this odd little Blonde Ale that I'd come up with. I was all set to do the Summer Lager (very slightly modified) with S-23 or my WLP-860 Helles yeast slurry, but I might consider using the 05 instead.
