I'm not sure what kind of style it'll fall under, but I think it's going to be very light and sweet. 80l is really the only thing that will darken it. I've not brewed with special b before so I may be wrong. I don't think you'll have any trouble with it being a good beer. You didn't do anything crazy with it.

I'd call it an Amber Ale! For the previous poster, Special B is a dark (150L) crystal malt from Belgium. That combined with the 80L Crystal will make it nice & red. It'll be nice & malty sweet. It's a complex grain bill but I think it'll be great.
