I'd do this one as an Ale my self with Coopers culture to Go with an Australian Pale Ale/Bitter?
Ale malt Instead of Pils Replace Munich with Vienna and add a bit extra
And drop the Crystal or maybe just a bit
Pride of Ringwood 60-40-20
ibu 35 OG 1050

I know its not really the same or very close but it sounds better to me
