I assume you're going for a light or Amber version of the style, and it looks good other than according to the BJCP, this style should be lagered. Also, you may want to consider a long boil with this (at least 90 minutes) to get some kettle caramelization. I've never made anything to this style, and I don't think I've ever had a commercial example, so take all this with a grain of salt.
