Seven days is a bit quick for any beer, but any lower OG non-complex beer should be ready by 10 days. I'd suggest a mild, a cream ale, an English brown, an American pale ale, a hefeweizen, or American wheat. Of those, a mild would probably be quickest.

A highly flocculant British yeast would be the way to go for all except the hefeweizen, and pitching the proper amount of yeast means it would finish up quickly.

I don't recommend packaging a beer until at least three days have passed with the beer at FG, but then it can be kegged.

Yup, low gravity is the key. My ordinary bitter is OG 1.036 and is always ready to package in 7 days or less.

I agree with the bitter plan, my house bitter is (11 gallon):
2.5 oz ekg fwh
11 lbs pale
.5 lb crystal 20
2 oz black pattent
90 minute boil
(89% efficiency)
Its very drinkable, very fast, and pretty much everyone likes it.

I keg all my beers at 9 days unless I have something over 1.090 or I'm dry hopping. I brewed an IPA at 1.075 on Wednesday an ill probably keg it this Friday. I've never had a problem with green beer flavors
