It's called a Neutral flame. Enough Oxygen is added to the fuel to allow almost complete combustion. The remaing fuel is combined with the surrounding air and burned.

A slightly Carburizing flame is used when welding Aluminum. Too much Oxygen produces an Oxidizing flame. It begins to sound louder and the inner flame comes to a point.
