Not too bad. If possible, I would bump up the munich by maybe another pound and decrease the lme a bit to compensate, just to give it a bit more body. Also, do you have the ability to lager? Guessing not cause you want to use the 1007, but if you do, go with 2308 or 2206 and lager that beer for a while. You will not be disappointed.

Unless this is a partial mash I'm not sure that the Munich malt is necessary. I'd drop it and go with 1 lb. Cara-Munich. I'd also go with a hop addition somewhere within 20 minutes for flavor/aroma. I guess you'd call this an altbier seeing as how an Oktoberfest is a lager. Should be tasty.
