Depends on your tastes. Overall the water doesn't seem too bad. You could up the chloride if you like malty beers or the sulfate if you like hoppy depending on the recipe. I'd suggest putting the numbers into one of the available tools and looking at the various profiles. In the end that is what it comes down to.

Rather typical water. You will find hundreds of posts here on how to brew with non-problem water. Only one of the methods: throw it away and use RO is consistent from beer style to beer style and even with RO you would have to add different amounts of salts, acids and bases depending on style.

Looks like our Lake Michigan water. Fine for ales, but I like RO for lagers.

Oh, and you're welcome regarding the mineral profile. ;)
