Have you brewed a kit before?

What kind of beer do you like? Are you brewing with extracts or all grain?

I would say to go with an extract kit if this is the is your first beer. I would say a brown ale is a good option. Make sure to make a semi heavy beer. The lighter beers are harder to hide mistakes in.

What type of beer do you like to drink? make that. Check Midwest out as they have a variety of good kits to start from.

I think this is the most important. Make something you want to drink! You will have (probably) 5 gallons of it!

My first brew was Caribou Slobber from Northern Brewer. Worked out pretty good for me.

Contact Northern Brewer and request a catalog. Their catalogs are just gorgeous, and you will probably find at least one you really want to make.

Midwest's copper ale. I loved it and so did the freeloaders who drank it.

try a hefeweizen. one of the SIMPLEST beers you can do

if it's extract

6 lbs Wheat DME
1 oz Hallertau or Tettnanger hops
Wyeast 3068 of WLP 300 yeast.... voila. that's about it simple, tasty and easy
