Ok, I really like Rogue's Irish Lager, and I'm trying to find a clone for it. A friend of mine came up with this, but when comparing this recipe to what's on the side of the bottle.... I just don't know. The part where I'm getting hung up is when I look at the malts that Rogue lists and compare it to the recipe I have... they just don't look the same to me. Also, just a heads up, I am an extract brewer (since that will probably change the recipe some).

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

This is what Rogue has on their website for this Lager:
Style: Lager Food Pairing: Seafood, Poultry

Tasting Notes:
An Irish style lager with a smooth mellow flavor and an apple crisp finish. Perfect for floating Guinness!

9 Ingredients:
Malts: Great Western Pale, Crystal -15, Wheat & Acidulated Malts, Great Western 2-Row.
Hops: Sterling & Perle.
Yeast & Water: Czech Pils Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.

28 IBU
75 AA
9.8 Lovibond
World Class Package:
Draft, 22oz Bottle

This is the recipe I am considering, let me know what you think:
