Notes

Color and Toffee/Caramel flavor should come from combination of Munich and choice of Crystal/Cara malts. CaraRed would be a great choice as would a combination of Crystal 20/40 and Victory or Biscuit. RedX might substitute for all or part of the Munich but the flavor combination of RedX may not be as pleasant as Munich.
Roasted Barley or similar should be used sparingly so as to make a contribution to the color without adding too much roasty flavor.
Use of Acidulated malt for PH management is optional.
Water chemistry additions should be made to target a fairly balanced profile that leans towards a malty lager but utilizes enough gypsum to make the hop flavor hold up well.
Step mash is routine for me but a single infusion of 152 would probably do very well.
Yeast choice could be S-04, Nottingham, WLP-004 or similar liquid Irish Ale yeast.
