Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: wyeast 2035   
Yeast Starter: yes   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.058   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: aprox 25   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 70   
Color: 17 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days @ 50 F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): Lagered @ 45 F   
Tasting Notes: very smooth, subtle sweetness   

We did a Lager version of the Red Ale, same grain, same hops, different yeast different temps.

9.25 lbs Pilsner
2 lbs Munich
12 oz Crystal 120
8 oz CaraPils
8 oz Melanoidin
1-2 oz Roasted Barley

Mash was 80 min @ 154

1 oz Williamette 60 min
1 oz Williamette 10 min
1/2 oz Williamette 3 min

Pitched the yeast from a starter and put it in the fridge @ 50 F then Lagered in a serving keg for 2 months 40 F @ 5 psi. Tried it after a couple weeks in the keg and it had some diacetyl, so I let it sit at about 65 F for a week or so then back in the fridge for 6 weeks. It turned out to be really good, Didn't take long for friends to kill the keg haha.
Here it is on the left next to Leinenkugel's Red Vienna Lager, not the best pic but you get the idea

it is a german malt that is supposed to mimic the decoction method of mashing, I like to use it in red or amber ales and octoberfest lagers

yes the german lager would probably be a good choice. We did a similar recipe with wyeast octoberfest blend 2633 and it came out even better, no diacetyl
