What are some great, fast session beer extract kits to have in your pipeline while waiting for your other beers?

Brewer's best red ale is a great, simple kit IMO, although make sure to get a decent yeast, I can't remember what it comes with. It was my first beer ever and it was awesome.

Im giving this one a bump.

Im just looking for some good easy fast kits to make while I wait for my other beers to finish. Something that tastes good but doesnt take a long time to make.

Go to LHBS and ask for their best selling kit.

The AHS Session kits have been well-regarded. What sort of style resonates most with your palate?

Hefe's peak very quickly. Even if bottle conditioned they'll be good in under a month. I don't know if you'd consider it a session beer but I know I like to put them away.

Actually, I brewed a Hefe kit last night. It was the Hank's Hefe from Midwest.
This thing took off like a rocket. Big head of Krausen and airlock bubbling like crazy in just 4 hours from pitching!!!

The Belgian Saison from this series is quite nice. I also second the advice to try a hefe. That tends to be our goto style when we want something quick and easy.

True Brew's Canadian Ale kit is easy and also goes down very easy.
