Default "Irish" Lager

I'm planning on brewing a lager for St. Patrick's Day. I'm looking for something light, and drinkable (for the faint of heart who have a hard time drinking a stout).

I was thinking of something pilsner-ish, but perhaps less bitter than some. Malty, not sweet, and with a good floral aroma (from Tettnang?).

Here's what I'm thinking:

8 lbs. Pilsner Malt
1 lb. Munich
1 lb. Vienna

Mash for 60 minutes at 152˚

1oz 4.4% Tettnang - 60 min
.5oz 4.4% Tettnang - 20 min
.5 oz 4.4% Tettnang - 10 min

Ferment at 52˚ for 3 weeks with either WLP838 Souther German Lager or Wyeast 2007 Pilsen Lager. Lager at 35˚ for 5 weeks.

I get somewhere along the lines of 1.050 OG (70% efficiency..working on and hoping for more) 27.1 IBU, 4.9SRM.

Any input would be wonderful.

why not do an irish red, but with a lager yeast. think Killians Irish Red...but much better

8lbs golden promise or maris otter
1lb crystal 55 or 60
2oz chocolate malt

same hop schedule or yeasts will work. might be darker than your pilsner-ish idea, but its not as heavy as a stout, and like i said...if you say killians most people think irish beer

A good idea, but I've already got an Irish Red in the fermentor right now. I'm sort of shooting for the "Guinness, Smithwick's, Harp" Irish combo...only the beer will (hopefully) be better than all three.

Ever had Kells Irish Lager from Rogue? It's good and listed as a pale lager. Might see if there's any recipes out there to get ideas from.
