Default Hoppy light Ale?

I love Victory Prima Pils ... but as of now dont have lagering capabilites. Any recommedations on how to brew an ale that has a similar taste .. doesnt have to be a clone by anymeans but really looking for a lighter bodied heavily hopped light ale ... thanks!!

Have a look at Biermuncher's Centennial Blonde Ale recipe in the recipes section of the site. If you want an ale that has some lager like characteristics, pick a yeast that is fairly clean (WLP001 is good) and ferment a little lower than you might otherwise, say 63-65. It will take longer, but I have had success with this.
