Something really plain by the looks of it. I'm sure it's because I'm a couple drinks in already but what do you mean by different sources of starches? 2 row and 6 row are both barley so it's not really a different starch. Did you use adjuncts? What kind of yeast and hops did you use? What IBU?

I would suggest going to the BJCP website and reading the descriptions. Without knowing the Gravities, what you have described to me sounds like a cream ale.

Agreed. By the ingredients it sounds like a cream ale but I would go to the bjcp website, look up the style while tasting it to see if it tastes like a cream ale because obviously I can't tell you what it tastes like.
