Yup, so its moved to the recipe/ingredients forum. OP, when you have a recipe you like and have made successfully a few times, then please feel free to share it in the recipe database.
For a first brew, I always recommend an American Pale Ale of some sort. There is enough going on flavor-wise there to help cover some off-flavors, plus everyone likes a pale ale! Take a look in the recipe database under American Ales
If you wanted to do a lighter beer than a pale ale, consider a blonde or cream ale. Take a look in the recipe database under Light Hybrid.
Are you brewing with extract, partial mash or all grain?
