Default English Cream Ale?

So with all this talk of cream ale, and summer being pretty much here (upper 90's yesterday) I was sipping on dude's pub ale and a thought came to me, English cream ale? why not! this would be my first attempt at a light hybrid style beer so I was wondering if anyone would chime in on the recipe. I'm hoping that the MO won't overpower the clean-ness, I could mix it with 6-row, but I'm not sure.

Cream of England
8# Marris Otter. 80%
1.5# Flaked Corn. 15%
0.5# Flaked Oats. 5%

1.25oz EKGs @ FWH

Fermented with Nottingham @55F

Comments? Concerns? Random Insults?

Sounds good to me. If you want to dry it out a bit more to compensate for the MO, drop a pound of malt and add pound of simple cane sugar.

I've done it in the past with great results and a very light beer. Jamil's cream ale recipe includes cane sugar as well.

The only problem with the oats is that you'll have a longer chill haze period.

Looks pretty good.

Use a nice low mash temp (149) and let it rest for 90 minutes and it will really attenuate low and be very crisp.
