Default 1st AG brew needs name and category


So my first all grain ale is bottle conditioned and currently being enjoyed. I didn't follow a previous recipe though, and am interested to see what you nice folks would categorize it as. Also if anyone has any suggestions for a name I'd love to hear them. Here goes:

Grain Bill:

  • 10 lbs American 2 Row
  • 6 oz. Crystal Rye
  • 8 oz. Amber Malt
  • 2 oz Light Roasted Barley
  • 1 oz Palisade (bittering)
  • 1 oz Horizon (flavor and Aroma)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Irish Moss
  • White Labs Irish Ale yeast

Doughed in and mashed for 1 hour at 156-159f.

Boiled one hour with 1 oz Palisade

45 minutes in added Irish moss

50 minutes in added 1/2 Horizon

58 minutes in added 1/2 Horizon

Pulled hops, chilled and pitched yeast at 78f

OG: 1.045

FG: 1.011

Tasting notes:

Light brown/red/blonde, clear. Foamy head with little retention

Malty on the nose light caramel, butterscotch and cinnamon

Opens with slight sweetness with round mouthfeel, biscuity, caramel. finishes bitter, slightly hoppy, spicy and dry (from Rye?)
Well rounded and balanced brew, lingers with dry astringency, possibly slightly medicinal.
