Marathon Session Pale

Continuing on my Session style beer mission, I am going to be doing a sMasH styled beer.  This is a "Single Malt and Single Hop" recipe.  I'll be using Marris Otter for all of the grain.  The primary idea for this recipe is for a simple easy drinking, lager style ale.  Or better yet a Kolsch-ish beer.

Update #1

Honestly, it's a little bland and boring.  Currently it is cold crashing in the fridge at 36 degrees.  When I have a open tap I will give a better update.  But for now this sMasH beer might be a bust.

Update #2

It is becoming very Kolsh like.  In fact, tonight I am bring it to a New Years party.
