Default Recipe Style Thoughts

Just made the switch from Extract to All-Grain and am creating my own recipe for my 2nd AG batch. I don't have any particular style in mind, but curious where you think this would possibly fit (if any style). The closest BJCP I found would be Northern German Altbier I thought, but I'm new at developing recipes.

And yes, I plan to get the Designing Great Beers book.

Recipe:
9.75# 2-Row
1.25# Biscuit
1# Honey Malt
0.5# Crystal 120
0.5# Carapils

SRM: 13
At 70% Efficiency I have 1.060 OG and 1.017 FG.

Plan to use Kent Golding(s) hops and undecided on yeast.

My thought is a sweet (honey malt) raisiny (crystal 120) bread (biscuit) would be kind of good. I know yeast determines alot too, but was going to see where this would go.

I think alts are pretty defined by the yeast and german hops and I suspect the honey malt would be out of place, so not sure you'd be close to that. This might be good with an English ale yeast, a honey amber maybe? (realizing that's not a recognized style )

Thanks for the reply. Funny you mentioned English Ale as that was kind of a lean of mine with the hops, etc. I'll maybe roll with an English Ale yeast and see how it turns out. Obviously I won't waste my time getting it judged since it won't really have a true style per se.
