It won't be great. It all depends on your tastes.

It depends on your tolerance for not so great beer.

If you ferment an "Oktoberfest" recipe with ale yeast at ale temperatures you wont have an Oktoberfest. You will have a low hopped amber ale, with some slight malty sweetness. It will be beer and probably drinkable, but it wont be the clean, light finishing lager that is typical of the style.
