Some might say that's too much crystal malts with the c-20 and carapills. I think it will work out. It will be kind of honey-like sweet but balanced like a blond ale should be. I'd use less crystal malts and a more impressive finishing hop.

I would replace the cara pils with either white wheat or flaked barley, almost 20% crystal malt is too much for my taste. Also I would add 1-2 oz of Willamette at flameout.
