So I have the following ingredients and need some help coming up with a tasty beer to brew this weekend:

-.5 lbs carapils
-.5 lbs crystal 77
-.5 lbs chocolate malt
-6 lbs of liquid pale malt extract
-1 lbs cascade
-1 lbs centennial
-Notingham dry yeast

I could stop by my LHBS and pick up some more malt but I would rather not. I am open to any style and suggestion.

Thank you

Looks like an American interpretation of Orfy's Mild Mannered Ale to me.

Looks like classic American Brown Ale to me, albeit on the smaller end of the scale. I'd keep the bittering charge relatively light, and load up on Cascades at flameout.
