Avoid dark beers so you don't have to sweat pH issues. Something along the lines of an APA or blond ale would be good choices.
That's a good point, that I forgot about. It helps to know what kind of water you're dealing with (hopefully from previous EG brews). Don't forget though that for some of us not "sweating ph issues" means having to brew dark beers. All depends on your water.
As I read down this thread was thinking- man what about the dude's water?
Nice to brew but maybe a "blonde ale" might taste like crap if he doesn't have the water for it.
Mine was a Brown ale/Bitter and it was awesome. Only by accident did I brew a beer just about right for the local water. I ignored the obvious and had erratic results after that when I tried to brew lighter beers. That knowledge was available to be sure but not given freely by brewers in that forum (not this one).
So I suggest getting a report of your local water if you can. Might be available online. Regardless, you should go to John Palmer's How to Brew
and read up on this chapter including, and most specially the part about water. Utilize the nomograph- it will save you some grief.
