Default Need a Red Ale Recipe

I have never done a red ale, nor do I know much about them so I was hoping someone could point me to a good recipe. The key is that I really need the red color to pop as it's a brew for the opening game of the Houston Texans I'm hoping to use the hops I have on hand (Warrior, Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial, Mt Hood, Halleurtaur, Chinook), but if not it's okay. I do also have some washed WLP0001 yeast I can use as well, but not required. So fire away, I need ideas!

EDIT: I'd also like it quite sessionable as we'll be drinking it in 100+ degree heat.

I've brewed this one which is a simple but solid recipe, was a big hit. If you're looking for a redder hue, maybe replace one of the Munichs with Carared. I believe this one was like a 26 SRM.

Mashed 75mins @153

10.0 lb German/Weyermann( 2-row) Pale Malt (3L)
1.00 lb German/Weyermann CaraMunich III (50-60L) (crystal 40)
1.00 lb German/Weyermann CaraMunich I (30-45L) (crystal 60)
1.0 oz Challenger/UK [8.3%] pellets (60 min)
1 tablet Whirlfloc (20 min)
1.0 oz Mt. Hood/US [3.6%] (FWH) *add to BK as wort is received from tun
1.0 oz Mt. Hood/US [3.6%] [1/2 oz knockout; 1/2 dry hop]
