Default Ideas for a quick beer

I want to make a beer that doesn't require a lot of aging after I finish my Tripel to reduce the temptation to drink the tripel before its reached its prime. I've seen some conflicting info regarding styles that are best after 2 weeks and I'm considering a wheat beer, but are there any other styles that aren't green if drunk after 2 weeks bottle conditioning?

A British mild is always a good bet for a quick beer. I had mine fermented, kegged, and carbed up for drinking in less than 10 days. (See this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f38/proj...th-10-a-77758/)

I don't like wheat beers, but a hefeweizen would be quick and easy, too.

The keys for a "fast" beer are a fairly low OG, no complex roasty flavors that need to mellow and meld, not tons of bitterness, and something that you don't care if it's clear or not.

Thanks!

I think I'm going to go with the session mild from another thread here. Anyone have any experience with this one?
