Default Summer Brew recipes

So the summer is coming in a few months and the temp is going to start going up.
I have seen many Golden ales/Kolsch/Wheat recipes on this website and they all sound good but was wondering if any of you have your own recipes you would like to share for a great summer brew???

It's a pale ale, but this was a good summer brew for me:

You can also throw in a little (very little) Grains of Paradise.

How about creating your own SMaSH recipe?

Only need to choose a base malt and your favourite hops. If you used a simple base malt and some American hops you'd be able to ferment it warmish with US56 and it would be great cold for the after work beer.

Brewing my first 'summer beer' of the season (more like a spring beer really since I'll be drinking it within 3-4 weeks or so) this Saturday:
