This is what I did, it was a huge help!

+1 on Midwest's copper ale. I've made it a couple times now. Not too easy to make, but not too hard, so you pay attention and the results are a very drinkable beer that will appeal to just about everybody. I would suggest the copper or the irish red ale to start with. Both are fun to make and produce a very drinkable brew.

Brewer's best kits are very good for beginners. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. They include all you need for 5 gallons. I would try their english brown ale, its a very good beer and the brown ales are very forgiving to little mis-steps.

I've brewed a few Brewers best kits, all tasted good. american pale ale is excellent.

A german hefeweisen is one of the easiest to make.

If extract, then the only thing you need is wheat extract and water and an ounce of boil hops (Hallertau).

For all-grain, 50% pale malt and 50% wheat malt and an ounce of boil hops.

Use Wyeast 3068 yeast and it will be ready to bottle in 2 weeks.

My first brew was Midwest's Irish Red Ale (extract version), and it was great, and a good learning experience.
