Want to make a red ale or lager and want to keep it lighter. (OG .050 or less.) Also don't like a ton of bitterness.
I've seen a few made by members but obviously never tasted them. Also saw a red ale on Northern Brewer for like $20 for the kit.

If anyone can recommend a store bought kit, or a good recipe I would appreciate it. (has anyone made the red featured in one of the recent BYOs?)
Primary - Apfelwine
Secondary - Niagara white wine
Kegged - AH Special Holiday Ale, AH Cream Ale, AH Honey Wheat
Bottled - Continental Pilsner, Island Mist Mango Citrus, Island Mist Wildberry Shiraz
Up next - AH Foster's clone, Labatt's clone, Hard Apple Cider,
