Default Summer home brew

So I was looking for a good brew that I could make for the summer time. I know most will say that any beer is good in the summer time. But I was looking for something that was really crisp and refreshing Something easy to drink and relatively easy to make. Being here in Ga. Summer means humidly hot which means there is no getting away from the heat no matter where you hide. Any suggestions?

Biermunchers Centennial Blonde is what you are looking for, light crisp, low alcohol, and just plain refreshing on a hot summers day, that is one to try

well I'm kinda new to brewing just done 3 true brew kits so no experience with all grain recipes. I guess I should go to the newbie forums and see if there are any posts that may be beneficial to me. I always get ahead of my self on stuff.

BM Cent blonde has Extract, PM and All-Grain. another one to consider is a wheat beer. I have AHBS Spiced American Wheat sitting in primary waiting for a keg as we speak.

A cream ale is great on a hot day.

I'm doing a kristal weizen, if you like wheats and cloves and something pretty light.

Brown Recluse Kristalweizen for the (very simple) extract recipe.

How about taking a page out of the Sam Adams book and brewing something simple, light, refreshing, and quaffable. Here's my summer recipe that I'm brewing this Saturday:

6 lbs Light DME - 30% @ 60 min, 70% late addition
½ lb Crystal 20 - Steep @ 155 for 30 min
½ oz Simcoe - 60min
1 oz Amarillo Gold - 15 min
1 tsp Irish Moss - 15 min
2 oz fresh grated Orange Peel - 5 min
1 zest of 1-2 fresh lemons - 5 min
1 ea White Labs WLP008
