There are a few different names depending on the beers used, but I heard the term "light and bitter " used. Talking with a few bartender's and locals in Dublin pubs led me to think the best idea is to just ask for the two beers you want mixed... they know what to do with them.
In England its not uncommon for it to be served with the two beers completely mixed. No layering. That threw me off the first time.
