Here's a blonde ale recipe that's great for the summer. It's light-bodied, crisp & clear (similar to a typical lager), but with the ABV & flavor of an ale. And most important, it doesn't go overboard with the hops. So if you're not a big fan of the IPA, you might like this one.

Target batch size: 5.5 gallon

8.0 lb Maris Otter
2.5 lb 2 Row
0.5 oz Amarillo @ 45 min
0.5 oz Amarillo @ 20 min
Danstar Nottingham Ale Yeast (pitch below 70 F !!!)
Mash @ 151 F

2 weeks primary (63 F - 69 F)
3 weeks secondary cold crash in refer.

OG: 1.051
FG: 1.010
ABV: 5.3%
Bitterness: 20.5 IBU
Color: 4.3 srm

You may prefer a more citrus-fruit flavor. The Amarillo is a tad dull in this respect but still good. I think I'll use Magnum, Citra (or similar) next time.
