I have a hard time imagining how drinking the beer made from this recipe would bring to mind Pils. Unless, maybe you can taste the Saaz. Still, that's an intriguing hop bill you've got there. I'm curious to hear how it turns out.
French Brown? ;)

Can't tell if you're bustin' my balls there or not :-)

Not at all, I'm all for experimentation with hops!  I've just never seen that combination and think it could make for some tasty brew. 
I just tapped a keg of Brown last weekend that used the NW Ale strain and some Special Roast malt. The special gives it a nice interesting tang that I really like. I wonder if the the Amarillo/Nelson Sauvin wont lend a similar note to your recipe? Please let us know. Cheers!
