How about a blonde? very simple and pretty straightforward. It's like an all malt BMC. Give the Jamil Show about blonde's a listen

Cream ales are thicker, hefes are really flavorful, and a Pilsner is out of the question for a beginner.

I think a Blonde or Kolsch are both excellent choices to get her started, but I think the blonde is easier to do well. Here's a link to the Jamil show that Alamo mentioned.

how about a flavored hefe like a Rasberry UFO type style? Most of the girls that drink beer that I know stick to the BMC or lighter beers like a UFO or a Sam Summer type deal, light and fruity

Also Mr Beer (gasp! Mr Beer!?) has a recipe that sounds similar to what you're looking for. I think it is this one..

I'd go with a lighter version of a Hefe Weizen.

Reduce the DME to 4 lbs (instead of 6) and lower the hops to about 2.5% AA.
