I think you could call it dirty blonde. The color will be darker, and you will have more malt flavor in the beer than intended by the recipe. Other than that there will not be too much of a difference. RDWHAHB

The good news is that is wasn't crystal 120. It wil be sweeter and if it were mine I would add some more base malt and make it hoppier.

Crystal 10 is just going to leave it a bit sweeter. Should be fine.
