Default Wyeast Oktoberfest Yeast Recipe

I inadvertently grabbed the Wyeast 2633 Oktoberfest yeast at Northern Brewer instead of the 2565 Kolsch yeast. Now I am looking for a recipe to brew with the Oktoberfest yeast.

I don't really want to brew an Oktoberfest for drinking in midsummer, so I checked out the Wyeast website and they said the 2633 is suitable to a Vienna Lager. Does anybody have any good Vienna Lager suggestions? Or, is there a better suggestion for a good summer beer to brew with the 2633?

Thanks.

Looking at the yeast on BeerSmith, it says it's also good for Marzens and Bavarian Lagers. Maybe you could do a Munich Helles with it, that's a good summer beer?
