Homebrew: Summerfest

I don't actually have the recipe handy, but I'll post it up when I find it.  This was just a simple summerfest type recipe, using a pale extract, 1# of munich, and some magnum and cascade hops.  It turned out pretty good.  Not very clear, but it does have a nice malty taste and a light finish.
