Default Recipe Critique (summer ale)

I was just messing around in beersmith and i decided to make a summer ale recipe. Summer is coming soon so it seems quite appropriate. I am looking for something very malty, a tad sweet, and just a good a beer to drink for these hot summer days. Here is what i came up with. I'm not exactly sure on the yeast strain though. I also use Deathbrewers PM technique.

i don't think you'll get much malty in that, maybe more sweet, but it doesn't look bad.
