I just brewed one that was similar. In hopes of a delicious beer in about 5-6 weeks.

I brewed this one on 5/20/12; OG: 1.066 FG; 1.010 bottled on 6/7/12. Only difference I did was using Gambrinus pale malt & I used some Centennial hops in the boil, since my LHBS ran out of Amarillo (I did have some which I used in the 0 minute addition). Love this style!
