That is an oxymoron in its purest form.

Take an extract Pale Ale recipe, cut the hops in half and substitute rice syrup for half of the malt. Or look for "light american ale" recipes.

Yeah, something like what dave_42 recommended would work. Or, dig around and find a simple cream ale recipe.

The thing with trying to brew "Bud" is that you'd be disappointed in the finished product, probably. Lagering it would require more equipment and a longer wait, and you'd definitely need to do that for a "good" homebrewed lager. You could most definitely buy a couple of cases of the real thing for cheaper than brewing it.
My suggestion is to try and brew something like a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. You would have excellent drinkable beer in about a month (instead of 2-3 months). Oh yeah, you'll be hooked, too.

or a golden ale....like orrelse said, lagers are difficult, costly, and not always on the mark unless they get lagered for a couple months.
