comment Would this grain bill make “true” Irish Red Ale?
Your best friend right now is page 26 (PDF page 40) of the new 2015 BJCP guidelines: bjcp.org/docs/2015_Guidelines_Beer.pdf That'll get you 95% of the way there.

comment Bad taste, no head
Don't half-fill bottles. If you only have half a bottle left over, use it for hydrometer measurements (if there's enough), sample it for flavor, or dump it. The extra headspace in the bottle is all oxygen which can lead to oxidation (wet cardboard flavor), or stale off flavors from unwanted microbes having excessive oxygen to feed off of and spoil your beer, or even both. The latter of which would certainly reduce head retention.
