Default Good, easy, camping ale idea?

Going on my annual camping trip and pig roast this next April. I would like to do a 5g batch and keg it to bring up for everyone.

So i need an idea on something not too tough, but good that everyone will enjoy

Ideas?

Most people enjoy a cream ale, and they're pretty easy. I have a good AG recipe posted, if you're interested.

Maybe an ESB or ordinary bitter, I personally like to take a porter but I know thats not everyones cup of tea.

It seems a lot of folks don't like anything too hoppy, too dark or heavy, or basically anything that makes a great beer great! I'd go with an amber ale of some sort. Very drinkable, yet can have a lot of flavor. I've never met anyone who detested an amber ale...

+1 for Amber Ale. Fat Tire and Mirror Pond sell tons for a reason. 2 row, C40, and cascades, centennials, or amarillos for 20-25IBUs.

I always take a 3g keg of my Amber Ale, and a 3g keg of Hefeweizen camping.

I've made two batches of AHS Belgian Pale Ale in the past 3 months and all of my BMC or non-beer drinking friends seem to really like it. Its to the point where I need to keep brewing it just to have some around for friend requests...
