Default Thoughts on my water?

Hey all, hoping to tap into all the knowledge around here and get some thoughts on my water. I like to brew all kinds of different beers, stouts to BMC styles, so I am just wondering if anything seems out of the ordinary and should be addressed on a general level for brewing? All numbers are in mg/L (except pH of course!):

pH - 7.6
Alk Total - 104.3
Nitrate-N - 6.7
Chloride - 15.4
Calcium - 39.6
Potassium - 1.27
Magnesium - 15.4
Sodium - 5.5
Phosphorus - 0.027
Sulfate - 4.99
Hardness - 162

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me!

That is pretty good water for many styles. The Mg is slightly high, but is tolerable. The alkalinity is also a bit high, but again quite manageable with an acid addition.

Awesome, glad to hear it looks pretty good as is! Thanks for the quick reply! I am just starting to look into water chemistry and actually downloaded your excel sheets the other night! There is a lot to take in but hopefully I will be able to wrap my head around it!
