Default Blonde Ale

Forgive me if this is the wrong forums for this.
My sister is getting married and asked if i would brew a beer fro their wedding just to have something special... her soon to be husband is the problem... his favorite beer is Pacifico... some times he can be seen with a corona.... thats not particularly interesting for me and i really do not wanna have to lager 20 gallons. So I decided to go with a blonde ale... seems like a good compromise...

So first question, in the list of beer style at the middle/bottom of the forum under what catagory would a blond ale fall exactly?

Second, anyone got a blonde recipie (partial mash prefferably though i can convert it) that would seemingly go well for a pacifico drinkers?

It would be in the Light Hybrid Beer category...

Have you thought about making a cream ale?

Either way, you should be able to dig up plenty of recipes for both... We made a 10 gallon batch of a honey cream ale on 2/26 that was:

84.91% pale malt (UK 2 Row)
7.55% Carafoam
7.55% Honey Malt
12.2 IBU Target hops (60 min)
3.7 IBU Fuggles (20 min)
0.8 IBU EKG (5 min)
Yeast: Wyeast British Ale II (#1335)

Mashed at 152F for 90 minutes
Bitterness: 16.7 IBU
Color: 7.0 SRM

OG: 1.065
FG: TBD (estimated at 1.010-1.016)
Expect to be bottling it up pretty soon.

Get yourself some Continental Pilsner malt and do a single malt beer. If you want it super dry add some simple sugar (corn sugar or table sugar). You'll want to shoot for 15-20IBU. A quality pilsner malt will have a soft subtle profile, well suited to Light Lager drinkers. You can add a late hop addition if desired but keep it small because it will come through more than in most beers. Any clean American Ale yeast will do, personally I prefer US-05. If you can find a high quality extract made from pilsner malt you could do a partial mash but I would worry about the freshness of extract in such a delicate beer.

Biermuncher's centennial blonde is a great recipe.

LOOK in the "Light Hybrid Beer" category... There's Blonde recipes right on the first page...
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f62/blonde-208008/

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f62/tibers-sexy-blonde-ale-203362/

Personally, I have a dirty blonde recipe that's on deck, but it's not been brewed yet... Won't know how it will be until it's in the glass...
