Summerfest is a lager. What yeast are you using and I don't think you have a similar brew in that recipe.

"Our Summerfest® is a refreshing, pilsner-style lager. Its incredible smoothness comes from an extra-long lagering period. Lighter in body than our ales but just as complex in character, Summerfest® quenches your thirst with big aroma and a tangy hop bite. "

alcohol content 5.0% by volume yeast Bottom-fermenting Lager Yeast
beginning gravity 11.8 Plato bittering hops Perle & Saaz
ending gravity 2.8 Plato finishing hops Saaz
bitterness units 32 malts Two-row Pale & Munich

Boy, do I feel dumb. Okay maybe not Summerfest, but how 'bout as a crisp tasting pale ale. I was planning on using nottingham yeast. I'm just trying to clear out the freezer. I've got a ton of styrian goldings and have never brewed with them.

I have never used Stryian Goldings either but the description indicates it is a Fuggle derivative. You could make a nice English based ale with those hops. The Cascade and Amarillo go well together for an American based ale. I add some crystal malt to most of my recipes as well.
