EdWort's Pale Ale. It's clean, simple, and cheap. You can purchase it from here
I'm sure, if needed, they can convert it to PM or extract/steep.
It's one of my go to beers and appeals to a wide variety of beer drinkers.

Most fun thing I've brewed so far was a strong dark Bock. Simple yet complex. Anything you need to lager is extra fun.

Pale Ales are nice and easy to experiment with, and nice and easy summer drinking I'd recommend getting a couple of tins of pale liquid malt extract (or equivalent dry if you prefer) and experimenting with different hops - I'm in the UK so my pales tend to use a combination of Fuggles and Goldings, although next I'm going to try one with just Challenger. This is a great way to get to know one of your ingredients (hops) that will really help later on when you want to figure out your own recipes!
Alternatively, if you want to try an ESB, I just did a search of the forums and found http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f64/fullers-extra-esb-58437/ which sounds yummy - only use the sugar if you want it that strong! Also, for something like this, I just use dry yeast, normally safale s-04, and no yeast nutrient. I recommend using the irish moss though!

Try an oatmeal stout. For some reason I had a blast making it, and it smells delicious!

Brew a Dunkel Weizen. It is a German dark wheat beer. It is light and refreshing with subtle complexity from the roasted malts. You can get big banana flavors if you ferment it high, or a more subdued yeast flavor that has more clove notes if fermented in the lower 60's. This is an easy extract beer to make. You just need 2 cans wheat LME, some noble type hops (enough to hit 15-18 IBU), and a Hefeweizen yeast vial. Yum!

The Austin Homebrew Supply Kolsch is like $30 for the kit and it is always one of the best beers I make. It is loved by everyone.

thanks for all the ideas guys, and keep them coming, i've settled in for some sort of ESB for sure, and think i'd like to try the pale ale. the kolsch seems interesting, and that wheat ale seems promising as well. decisions decisions......

Cool! ESB was the first thing I brewed when I got my kit together and found my LHBS, pale was the third (in between was a thoroughly unsuccessful chocolate stout). Let us know how it goes!
