Default Pete's Gold Coast Lager

This is going to be a blast from the past, but does anybody have a recipe for Pete's Gold Coast Lager? This was one of the first beers I tried from Pete's back in 1992, before he sold out and things went down hill. It's been a long time, but I remember it being a very tasty brew.

Ok, so I did a little research and found one post from 1992 on hbd that gave some specifics on Pete's GCL. Based on this, I came up with the following recipe. I'm guessing this is in the Premium American Lager category, but I remember it being somewhat fuller bodied and stronger. Here are the notes:

Pete's Gold Coast Lager: Pale malt, Cara-pils malt. Cascade hops. 3.5%
alcohol.
"Pleasant balance of malt sweetness with robust hops flavor."

So I came up with the following recipe. Suggestions, thoughts, input aprreciated.
