Default Refreshing Summer Brew

I'm about to do my first all grain brew and I'm looking for a nice refreshing low alcohol beer for the hot summer. I have an IPA in the keg right now but I doubt it will last much longer.

Any suggestions?

I just bottled a batch of partial mash Speckled Heifer from Norther Brewer. Based on the final gravity sample I tasted it promises to be a thirst-quenching, easy to drink beer. Looking forward to enjoying it after a run, yard work or lazing by the pool.

Friends and I rapidly destroyed my Kolsch and California Common I made for the summer. The California Common was probably one of my favorite brews.

90% Pale Malt
5% Crystal 60
5% Crystal 80
SG up to about 1.050

1oz Northern Brewer hops at 60
.5 Cascade at 10
.5 Cascade at 5

1oz Cascade dry-hopped

1 liter starter of White Labs San Francisco Lager yeast.

Cream ale and Hefes are great when it's warm. I also really like a good Cali Common, but I only use Northern Brewer hops in mine.

+1 on the Hefeweizen! Brewed my second batch for the summer this past weekend. Hoping the first one lasts long enough!
