Default What kind of beer is this?

I have just finished my first ever brew. It's amazing. I read a little about the basics of brewing but I'm not great at following recipes, mainly because I don't know what some of the ingredients are (or do). Anyway, I was somewhat cavalier about my first and just made up my own recipe. I like it. It's tastes good, even though it hasn't been bottled very long. I just don't know what it is. Silly huh? I was hoping a guru out there could decipher. Here's the formula.

3.3 Can of Muttons Light LME
2 lbs of Muttons Extra Light DME
1 lbs of Malto Dextrin
2.5 Cups of Honey
Nugget Hops at start for 15 minutes
Cascade at end for 15 minutes
Boil for 1 hour.
Ale yeast (Nottingham)
Eye of newt

The eye of newt must give it a really mellow flavor.

Good job!

Whats the gravity?

It would probably be fairly representative of the blond ale style.

The color and mouthfeel would be about right. Hop character would be about right.

The starting gravity was close to 1.04 and the end was 1.02 (assuming I'm reading it right) I took the temp and used a java applet somewhere and got the differences.

If had attenuated better, blonde ale.

50% AA with 1.040 OG doesn't really fit any established style.

I guess I could call it a "Dumb Blonde Ale."
