Default Kit recommendation request

So I am a newbie 4 batches done, getting 2 new kits (Honey Bee Ale, Raspberry Red Ale) on Friday or Monday and brewing them shortly after. I am already planning ahead and was thinking of trying a different style of beer. I know I've enjoyed a Baltic Porter in the past - Baltika #6 Porter - Pivzavod Baltika / Baltic Beverages Holding - BeerAdvocate and I want to find something similar that I would like. Can anyone recommend something similar, if I like Baltic porter style would I like other English porter styles? As a newbie I am sure dont want to buy a 5 gallon kit and not like it. I am also considering NB Breakfast Stout, NB English Pale Ale (I like Bass), NB Irish Red Ale (heard good things about it here). Am I making good newbie decisions style wise? I am going on the lighter side right now and dont want anything too hoppy. Right now I am only sticking to doing ales, once I get a kegerator I will think about lagers.

Thanks in advance!
