Default All day session beer

Looking for some opinions. Looking for a recipe that doesn't need to age in the bottle for a long time. Something that you could sit down and drink all afternoon. I love this extract brewing but just can't let it age as long as it should. Have no patience.

Don't know your definition of "long time", and "something that you could sit down and drink all afternoon" doesn't rule out much, for me anyway

But I'd go with an ordinary bitter. Plenty of recipes in the database that could be converted to extract pretty easily. Orfy's Boddington clone is really good...

Try a Saison. I just brewed it and it's damn good.

Wheat styles, Blondes, Koelsch, Mild, Wit... Many different lighter, yet flavorful beers to choose from. Personally, I've made a Blue Balls (blue moon clone) and a Biermunchers Centennial Blonde and both were excellent IMO.

I second the Centennial Blonde. Kegged up a batch not even 4 weeks ago and it's already kicked. Very easy drinking beer, but lighter on the ABV to allow you to drink MULTIPLE pints if you please. Easy to make as well!

Is a saison the same as a farm house ale. Did a little reading on those, but don't know much about them.

A traditional saison would be a nice session beer. The modern take on the style is a little more
