Sounds like you don't really have other options, just brew it. It'll be beer. I brewed a batch once with 8 lbs of pilsner lme just to see what it would taste like and it was okay. Not at all interesting but I drank it. Doing it that way will give you a very good sense of the base you are working with. If you want to get adventurous you could try adding something from your cupboard such as molasses or honey.

A bitter is a good bet...I have yet to brew one, but plan to this weekend or the next. It is a quick beer since it is low alcohol, just takes more time to bottle carb then actually fermenting haha
