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.

Try my recipe for Yankee Drifter Golden Ale. It's very clean, crisp and has been known to fool alot of people into thinking it's a true Pils.

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.
