I've done 12 kits so far and the ones I'd do again are

Woodforde's Wherry
St Peters IPA
Coopers Original Stout with 1kg dark DME and a can of treacle
Brewferm Triple

I tasted some of my brother's Festival Razorback IPA this week and that was amazing too so I'd add that to the list even though I've not done it myself.

I have St Peter's IPA and Brewferm Triple on tap and can vouch for them both; best of 10 brewed in recent times. The IPA might just be starting to lose it's hop touch, which is a shame. Wherry was OK but I prefer a higher ABV; I did like the Woodford's Admiral. I'm still only part way through my kit research and will complete the list of 5 later .

I think I can add St Peters Ruby red to that list. It's fantastic even after only 3 weeks in the bottle.

St Peters was my no 6 !!! (Ruby red, not done the IPA)
Heard very little about the Heritage lager although the Coopers Draught is a quality kit.

I actually quite like the IPA when the hops die down a bit. It's quite malty and strong tasting so it almost begins to taste like a Belgian beer. The sun's out so I'll definitely sink a few of them today!

Think American Amber Ale may have jumped to no 1
