Another route you might go would be to get a good recipe and then get fresh ingredients at your LHBS. Northern brewer lists the ingredients of the kits on their website.

I have gotten to like brown ales. You might look at Northern Brewers Caribou Slobber kit.

+1 for that. This is what I do.I have only done 2 out of the box recipes. I do a honey porter that I modified from Midwest's recipe and its wonderful.

A good kit is the mrbeer dopplebock or the pilot house pilsner . After a month , not the 2 weeks they tell you to wait , the beer starts tasting quite good . Before that it sucks . I really enjoyed them . How ever they are quite pricey .

I just realized how old I am . I used to buy cheap beer for 5.50 a case , tuborg gold . I do not know the price of cheap beer now but I just paid about 3.00 a bottle , singles , for some good beer.

The best rated beer I made right up there with the AG nut brown was a Muntons Wheat I believe . I forgot how I made it and of course did not bother to write it down . But as I remember I think I just made the no boil and then added in a pound or two of light DME and 1 pound of rain flower honey and 1 pound of regular honey . It had a strong rain flower honey taste for a while but after a couple months in the bottle it mellowed out and is one great beer .

There are still kits out there I haven't brewed so I can't be positive about a favorite but Northern has some nice kits.
