Default Blonde Ale Using Pilsen Malt???

I have ~9.5 lbs of left over Pilsen malt and some leftover hops I want to use up and was thinking of making a light ale in the spirit of a blonde but by using the Pilsen malt vs 2 row since I have it handy. Anyone ever tried this or have any feedback before I brew it?

9.5 lb Pilsen Malt
1 lb 10L Crystal
1 lb Flaked Maze

.5 oz Magnum @ 60
.5 oz Centennial @ 15
.5 oz Cascade @ 2

Wyeast 1056

Lately, I've been using Pilsner in all my lighter beers, including a blonde ale and a cream ale. Worked well for me. Good luck!

I don't see any reason that shouldn't be delicious. I'm a fan of pils for lighter beers and will often do a mix of 2-row and pils, but like I said, all pils will work for sure. Fo sho!
